News: Holliday Prefers New York

In a post to his blog for Newsday, Ken Davidoff says that Matt Holliday‘s first choice is to sign with the Yankees, then the Mets.

Davidoff doesn’t believe the Yankees will be willing to take on another long-term commitment, such as Holliday, while his primary reservation about signing with the Mets are the dimensions of Citi Field.

…with Hideki Matsui and Johnny Damon both coming off the books, i’m not going to believe the Yankees aren’t in on the holliday until he signs somewhere else, considering how they played their hand in the Mark Teixeira game last winter… and considering that Scott Boras is his agent, and both New York teams being big spenders, this could also be a ploy to drive holliday’s price tag up…
