These Aren't Your Father's Cardinals, That's For Sure.You Know.In My Mind Their Is One Major Problem The Cardinals Have, Bill Dewitt.How Much Better Could We Be With A Owner Who Would Use The Proceeds He Makes From TV & Stadium's Gate.Bill Dewitt Is The Worst Owner In Baseball. The Proof Is In How Bill Dewitt Is Running The Team.I'm Gonna Say Right Off The Bat, He Sucks. We Won That 2005 World Series In-spite Of Bill Dewitt. That Team Had Key Veterans That Dumwitt Would Eventually Get Rid Of To Save Money. All He Cares About Is Making Money.He's Cutting Pay-Roll & Letting Key Veterans Leave For Barely Less Money. Maybe The Busch Family Wouldn't Be Much Better. But At Least The Pockets Are Deeper. Now I Know Busch Has Been Bought By AB InBEV. Now I Know They Have Deep Pockets. I'm Just Dreaming Of A Cardinal Team Without Bill Dumwitt.. I Know Will Be Stuck With Bill Dumwitt For A While. He Will Continue To Do Things On The Cheap.He's Lucky That Cardinals Nation Are Such Great Fans.You Know We Should Start A Petition To Show Are Disgust At The Way The Team Is Being Run.I Know That Wouldn't Do Anything, Bill Dumwitt Wouldn't Care.Well, This Is Just The Way Things Are For Cardinals Fans.Maybe Will Get Lucky & Dewitt's Children Will Sell The Team.Maybe The Cardinals Will Win In-spite Of Bill Dumwitt & Will Win The Division. Keep Those Prayers Up & Think Positive.  GO CARDINALS !!!

How Good Could The Cardinals Be ?

I like this blog a lot XDLLA....and I know what it is like to have a bad owner in your city.  Being from Detroit, I am very lucky to have 2 great owners in Mike Illitch (owns the Detroit Red Wings and the Detroit Tigers) and Bill Davidson (owns the Detroit Pistons).  Both of these men are willing to spend the money necessary to create top end teams year in and year out....even when it doesn't go to plan like last year's Tigers.  Overall, for the most part, both of these men are committed to excellence and we appreciate every dollar spent.  But when it comes to William Clay Ford, the owner of our Detroit Lions, now that is the biggest joke of all sports owners.  Just like his auto company, which I love since it is in my hometown as well as friends and family working for them, he has driven both his company and his sports team into the ground.  And who gets to deal with it?  We football fans here in Detroit.  I mean at least your Cardinals have been good over the past few years and beat us in 2006 to win a World Series.  The Lions on the other hand aren't beating anyone...hahaha....and continue to be a model for other owners in showing "what not to do!!!"

Now back to your Cardinals.  I definitely agree that there have been free agents out there that the Cardinals should have went out and acquired.  When you have a player like Albert Pujols, the best player by far in baseball (and for those that don't agree, go look at his career stats and show me otherwise), then he needs other top end players around him.  Now yes I understand that your Cardinals have had some great surprises this past year, especially with the hitting emergence of Ryan Ludwick and Skip Schumaker.  But these aren't top end hitters who can really support a player of Pujol's stature.  And what about Troy Glaus?  Well...what about him?  Glaus is a career .256 batter who strikes out more than 7/8 of the league.  Now don't get me wrong...I still think Glaus is a good player, just not the type of player that Bill Dewitt can boast about acquiring.  The Cardinals should be out trying to get players with great OBP's to surround well as enjoy thr emergence of players like Rick Ankiel Schumaker, and Ludwick (all of which I think will be good for a long time).
