Matt Holliday seems to like playing in St. Louis

I thought that trading for Matt Holliday was a good move for St. Louis, but I thought people should put his numbers from his Colorado years in context and not expect a return to that. So far, though, his numbers from Colorado pale in comparison to his St. Louis numbers:

.488 BA, .551 OBP, .878 SLG, .1429 OPS, 21 H, 6 2B, 3 HR, 11 RBI, 9 R through 11 games (Cardinals are 7-4)

At his new home, Busch Stadium, his numbers look like they came from a slow-pitch softball league:

.500 BA, .581 OBP, .923 SLG, .1504 OPS, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 6 R through 7 games.

It is only through 11 games (7 at home) and they will come back to earth (he went 0-4 two nights ago!), but so far, the Cardinals look like they might have made the best trade of the season.
