Cardinals' rotation

Recommended Posts

Perhaps the best run organization in baseball. Great farm system, outstanding scouting, no albatross contracts, solid managing and coaching. Astute about the players who they sign and let walk. If any owner wants to win over the long term, he ought to look at what St. Louis does and emulate it. They aren't great every year, but they are consistently good and rarely out of contention. They have won 11 World Series, more than any other team besides the Yankees.


What is surprising is that Boston is third with seven titles, but five of those were prior to 1920.

Their entire rotation is homegrown.


They let Pujols go and sign Beltran to a reasonable 2yr deal...where he's been better than Pujols. Beltran is a FA after the season, but that's ok, since they have the top hitting prospect in baseball in Oscar Taveras


Wish the Halos were ran as well as them

Granted, the Cards are killing it with in house talent right now, but they haven't been all that up until the last couple of years.
