    big Al has aged a lot as a cards fan glad he and kyle left. Kyle is good but neither is worth the money they make and alberts long contract would have severely limited us

      Yeah. The Cardinals have a long history of making great and timely moves. They waited an extra year with Shelby Miller (worked out great so far), signed Matt Holliday when people were concerned about whether he was a Coors Field product (and aging a bit as well with large injury history), they signed Carlos Beltran to a team friendly deal… The Cardinals are just a very well run organization and they seem to do everything at the perfect time. The only problem i see now with them is Mike Matheny is a horrible tactical manager.

    It is amazing we are wining with Matheny. Albert will enter the HOF as a Cardinal.

    My question would Albert have been a better hitter the past 2 years in St Louis? I say yes significantly better. The Cardinal coaching, clubhouse, ownership and fans create an outstanding environment conducive to player success. A long list of players that resurrected their careers in STL and most players with long tenure in MLB that played for Cards their best years were in STL…….remember Will Clark, Larry Walker, Ekstein….even a csse could be made for Beltran. Who truly believed he would be this good the past 2 seasons?

    Additionally Cards ownership/coaching knew they were stacked with pitching talent. They had to let one go and Lohse was the odd man out. I was absolutely certain Rosenthal was going to be a stud after watching him pitch last year in the playoffs. Actually the only bright spot from last years playoffs. If you don’t remember take a look at last years footage of Rosenthal against the Giants. I felt the same after watching Danny Haren which I will add the last horrible trade I remember from management, Haran for Moulder.

      Great point. i agree. look across the Angels organization.. good walk rates are nearly non existent.. Erick Aybar, Howie Kendrick, Peter Bourjos, Mark Trumbo.. all are great examples of guys that don’t walk nearly enough. I think the Angels approach of see ball hit ball works better with younger players.
