Description: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday does not a hit in 12 career at-bats versus Cubs starter Jake Arrieta.
Insight: Holliday had a great start to the season with a couple hits and two RBI in the season opener. It's hard to sit a stud outfielder like Holliday, but with every team in action, if owners have other options, it's worth at least considering sitting Holliday.
