Really? Heck, bulldog, YOU may be an upgrade at either SS or #4-5 SP! Mo really wouldn't have to look far, I don't think, to replace the holes we have there. Bothrops is more upset (and I totally agree) at the attitude of Mo and his comments a month or so ago when he arrogantly said we didn't need to upgrade anything. That attitude at a time the Cardinals were falling from first, and continued refusal to upgrade in our weak spots, is beyond frustrating. It is even insulting, as if he can convince the fan base that this team is as good as any team can get, and therefore needs no upgrades! Ridiculous.

"Roger told me that he wanted to prove to the Yankees that he could play on another winner. He had a great Series." -- Hal Woodeshick, Cardinals reliever on the 1967 World Series champion squad, talking about right fielder Roger Maris. Maris hit .385/.433/.583 (10 for 26, 1 double, 1 HR) in the '67 Series, and set a Cardinals franchise record for 7 RBI in a World Series.
