Amazing MLB stat

I only wish someday the Angels can produce the same way the Cards do. They're doing something right.

 

Big blow to them today with Matt Holliday getting seriously injured on a rather freak injury.

 

Loved the guys style of play, and he hits with authority.

 

Hate seeing a guy like that go out, and hope he has a speedy recovery, and can play the same style of baseball again some day.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but they seem to focus on depth and in turn most every deal they make is a winner in terms of overall value. The Hayward deal is probably a counter example, but they had so much pitching depth at the time that it's hard to find a fault there. I'm probably forgetting someone, but who was their last major deadline acquisition? Matt Halladay?

jim edmonds referred to st louis as "baseball nirvana". its appearent that traditionally the players there are having fun playing and dont look like galley slaves pulling at the oars.  more about attitude and having fun playing a kids game with the focus on team and not on  individual retirement planning.

Busch family >>>>>>> Arte Moreno.

Other than big splashes, a name change, and a slight beer price drop, what has Arte truly done for the Halos to make them a long term viable contender like the Cards? The farm system and foreign presence seem to get the short stick with him.

$3 billion TV contract that allows us to compete financially with larger markets. Oh and before Arte there was talks of the Angels being contracted. obviously no team was dissolved, but if those talks started again could you even for a second think the Angels would be considered for it?

The Cardinals obviously have an amazing network of baseball people, from the scouts, minor league coaches, to the front office.  They have changed coaches along the way and not skipped a beat.  It starts in rookie ball and makes its way all the way up.
