Rockies lock up Holliday

There should be at least two more seasons of Mile High happiness for Matt Holliday.

The runner-up for the NL MVP -- some would argue he deserved to win -- inked a two-year, $23 million pact with Colorado on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

It's a great move for both sides. Holliday seems genuinely happy in Colorado and has overtaken Todd Helton as the face of the Rockies franchise. And now Colorado has two years to work out an even bigger, longer extension for the slugging left fielder.

October was a good time to be a Rockie and a Rockies fan. With more astute signings like this, that may be the case more often than not.
