You know what struck me watching the game last night against the Cardinals? What struck me was how intelligently and thoughtfully Cardinal management and coaches seem to approach the game. And you could feel that confidence in the approach extend down to the ballplayers. The Cardinals are nothing if not a well coached bunch, with the great Albert Pujols right smack in the middle of everything.
And look at the Rick Ankiel thing. I mean, a couple of years ago, this guy was A PITCHER in the major leagues. A PITCHER. Think about that for a moment; the Cardinals organization was able to convert A PITCHER to A PRODUCTIVE AND GOLD-GLOVE CALIBER outfielder. Just think about that, and I submit, you know all you need to know about the Cardinal organization.
And then think about Braden Looper, and his conversion by the Cardinals into a successful starting pitcher. And think about the other Dave Duncan success stories...
And tell me the last time anything remotely of the caliber of the things I've described above has ever happened in the Mets organization.
I'll betcha if Aaron Heilman became a Cardinal, he'd be converted into a successful starter by Dave Duncan & Co.
Kinda makes you think, and wonder, what is really going on in the Mets organization. There's just so much wrong, I can't even begin to begin talking about it.
