I see no reason to ding him for the "mistake" of winning a World Series. He's drafted very well, as evidenced by the WAR of his players now playing across mlb. I also believe you're being incredibly harsh in assessing Jocketty's tenure as the Cardinal GM.
No GM hits on every draft. All GMs make mistakes. Jocketty typically makes less mistakes than just about any other GM in baseball.
