Re: Cardinals are luckiest team in baseball.
Saluki...you're right and everyone else is wrong...that's what you come off as...its just your opinion and I respect that...as I respect Mike's....we just disagree which is what makes a board interesting. I see Walt as doing a very solid job respecting the farm system. Every prospect he has traded had a better or near equivalent so where would they play if they weren't moved? The glove diff between Didi and Zach is squat. Gregorious may be a bitbetter hitter but at seasons end I bet Cozart's overall line is very clise. Alonso couldn't displace Joey and he was flat out horrid in left. Grandal or Mes? Another close call imo and I'll take Latos for the difference. Boxberger? Stewart? Would you take back Sappelt and Wood to give Marshall up? Another close call Wood or Leake? Where does Sappelt fit? Sorry Walt has NOT sold out the farm...he has shrewdly filled holes with excess prospects building a strong pitching staff and decent lineup in the process. Hamilton will be up too. You are right about one thing. The future will prove who is right. And I feel real comfortable about it.
Mike you are right about Mozeliak. I thought the Cards might fade when Walt left but they found a great GM to replace him.
