What is with the continued drubbing of the ownership? Most of us who read/post on this site will probably agree with what I have to write, but I know there are many out there who just can't get enough of ripping the Cards, even after we just won it all.
I know our rotation doesn't look good now, but who here doesn't trust Walt's judgement?
I don't think that all these fans projecting gloom and doom in '07 have a long term memory, however, seeing as we have won the NL pennant 2 of 3 years and have also won a World Series title.
Hopefully with our organization making the commitment to youth, we can continue to develop quality young arms and we can make free agent splashes when they are worth the risk! We did so with Schmidt and it didn't work out. So what? He didn't want to play in StL. Fine by me. Have a nice career. There will be others, next year, and the year after, who will want to play here because it's a great place to play.
This organization has a plan. And a pretty incredible track record, considering our market/payroll, etc.
What team has won the most games over the past 5 years?

This organization knows what they are doing. The Cards will be fine.
