Description: Cardinals LF Matt Holliday is a .313 hitter with three homers against Cubs right-hander Carlos Villanueva.
Insight: Holliday is off to a slow start, batting just .216, but a favorable matchup and the strong wind blowing out to left field (15-20 mph) makes him a viable option on Saturday.

Description: Cardinals LF Matt Holliday has gone 8-for-20 (.400) with two homers against Pirates starter Edinson Volquez.
Insight: Volquez is making his first start for the Pirates after posting a 5.71 ERA in 170 1/3 frames for the Padres and Dodgers last season and serving up 15 earned runs in 14 innings this spring. Make sure Holliday is one of your selections on Sunday despite his .238 start.

Description: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday is hitless in seven career at-bats versus Boston Game 2 starter John Lackey.
Insight: Holliday homered in Game 1 to prevent his Cardinals getting shut out, and has seven hits in his last four postseason games, but he's batting just .265 over the 12 games of the 2013 postseason. Add in a bar matchup versus Lackey and Holliday should probably be avoided on Thursday.
