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.

Dunc and I had decided that Carp was going to start. But just to make sure, I called Dunc later that morning and said, "Let's discuss the alternatives." He said, "Carp's pitching." And he hung up on me. Tony LaRussa talking about the decision to go with Chris Carpenter before Game 7 of the 2011 World Series.
