Mediocre players and players on the decline come over to the Cards and have career years, over and over again. It must be something in the water
Second, Duncan has been accused his entire career of teaching pitchers how to throw scuff balls. Even a former pitcher, Perez in Cleveland talked about it openly to the press. Again, mediocre and declining pitchers come over to the Cards and re-invent their careers.
It's been happening for too long and too often for it to be just coincidence.
