The Mulder trade, new perspective

In a piece in today's Post on the All-Star game, they have a segment of retrospection on the Mulder trade.  I found this quote from TLR especially telling:

>>La Russa, recalling that trade, said, "(Cardinals pitching coach) Dave Duncan and I have been together a long time and been friends for a long time and it's probably the closest we've ever come to having a disruptive relationship -- because he was very adamant that Dan be a part of St. Louis' future."<<

I've taken some shots at Dunc recently over his abhorence of young pitchers.  I'm very glad to hear that he fought against trading Danny Haren.
