Three years later, is Matt Holliday still thought of as "overpriced?"

It was shortly after the new year in 2012 that Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday signed his seven-year, $120-million contract with the Cardinals. At the time a lot of people screamed that the Redbirds over-paid for Holliday whom they accused of being a product of Coors field. They griped that the Cardinals were duped into bidding against themselves. Here's a look at how he's fared since signing his deal with St. Louis compared to some other top free agents who have signed over the last three years.
