  1. Osborne Earl Smith "The Wizard" 15x All-Star 13x Gold Glove 580 SB (22nd all-time) HOF 2002
  2. I loved that summer, too! I remember watching him hit #62. The Cardinals were a terrible team that year, but, Big Mac still made them something to watch! I just based my 'Mt. Rushmore' on guys who were great both on and off the field (which Big Mac was, indeed) and who played major roles in Cardinals post-season success.
  3. Ozzie Smith Albert Pujols Chris Carpenter Yadier Molina
  4. Any team that would choose to start Mike Leake over Zac Gallen deserves to finish dead last in it's division. End of story.
  5. Monte Harrison will make an impact for the Marlins this year.
  6. His name is being rumored in a deal for Nolan Arenado. Obviously any pitcher wearing a Rockies uniform is usually not one to target.
  7. Throwing Johnny Q-Tip out this week! Go big or go home!
  8. I'm going for it. I've got nothing to lose!
  9. Hicks could get hurt drinking a glass of water. He is not worth the frustration at all.
  10. Carp is dumpster juice. The Cardinals organization is an absolute mess right now.
  11. The Cardinals are doomed for as long as John Mozeliak is a part of that organization. He is terrible in every way, shape and form.
  12. He and Troy Tulowitzki are best of friends.
  13. I sold Flaherty a while ago. I just don't like what I've seen from him this year. Mike Maddux is very overrated. Highly overrated. Whatever he is doing clearly is not working. Maybe it's time to give Dernier Orozco a promotion and give Maddux his walking papers.
  14. It is mind boggling how teams can let guys like this waste away in the minors. Kudos to Gallen for continuing to go out there day in and day out...all the while dominating the competition. He's not getting frustrated, bored or angry. He just continues to move forward. Very encouraging.
  15. I cut bait with this clown. He's got a golden arm but his head is loaded with cement. The Cardinals hold on to their pitchers too long. Michael Wacha showed an ability to be a SP2, Carlos Martinez was a solid SP2 and Reyes could have been a guy with borderline SP1 stuff. His marijuana incident paired with his incredibly inept brain will keep him from being a legit beast. John Mozeliak is a miracle. He's the only guy in the history of baseball who could turn a winning franchise into a perennial .500 team and earn himself a promotion from General Manager to President of Baseball Operations. As long as he's in the office, the Cardinals will continue on their journey to become the Baltimore Orioles.
  16. The Cardinal organization gets dumber by the year. Seriously, Mozeliak has got to go. He is terrible. Not sure how this clown even has a job at this point. The Cardinals haven't been in the playoffs in a long time and it is pretty clear that this club isn't headed in the right direction. Put CMart in the rotation, trade Reyes for $.25 and a vintage '85 Playboy mag...and for God's sake...FIRE MOZELIAK!!!!!
  17. Man...to call Carpenter garbage would be an insult to trash. He is totally lost at the plate right now. He started terrible last year before going bonkers. I'm going to hang onto him for now and hope to trade him if/when he gets hot.
  18. LOL...to be fair, though, it is hard to feel confident about starting anyone against the Brewers.
  19. This guy is an idiot. Plain and simple.
  20. "Thanks for the payday, suckers! If you need me, I'll be on the golf course with Jacoby". - Aaron Hicks. March 14, 2019
  21. Given the fact that he's only 25...I'm in on him this year. Hopefully he's available for a late steal.
