Matt Holliday speaks about winning the World Series.
“It was frustrating,” he said. “It was heartbreaking to get to a Game 7 of a World Series and to realize that I had no chance to play.”
So, how did the Stillwater native balance the disappointment and the delirium?
Holliday insists it wasn't that hard. Maybe he's being modest about that. Maybe celebrating on the field and smiling in the clubhouse and spraying teammates with champagne and riding through the streets of St. Louis during the victory parade were some of the most difficult things he's ever done.
Or maybe the way he handled all of that is further evidence of why he's known as one of the good guys in baseball.
