Matt Holliday is next on the list.

Holliday played 15 seasons in the MLB, 8 with the Cardinals, 6 with the Rockies, and 1 each with the Yankees and A’s.

In all, he played 1903 games, had 316 home runs, and a .299/.379/.510 batting line. He received MVP votes 8 times (finishing as high as second), was a Silver Slugger winner 4 times and an All-Star 7 times.

Matt won the NL batting title in 2007, with a .340 BA. He also led the league in doubles, and RBI.

And he played in 77 playoff games. He has one World Series ring from the 2011 Cardinals. Holliday had a pretty 6-7-year peak, with bWAR totals as high as 6.0.

Career he had a 44.5 WAR.

Offensively, Holliday was a very good player. Defensively, he played pretty much only left field, with a handful of games at DH and first base. And he wasn’t a very good left fielder. Career he had a -1.1 UZR/150. With better defense, he might have a bWAR in the 50s which would make him a stronger Hall of Fame Candidate.
