Maybe it was the solid second baseman they inked. Or maybe they are taking a step backwards because they picked up a talented pitcher in Wells who just so happens to be coming off of a freakish injury.
The ownership has made nothing but smart moves so far, and if it costs them in the short term ('07), it certainly won't pin them down in the future ('08). There's no doubt that the Cardinals are not in an enviable position rosterwise, but they weren't last year and look what happened.
Like I said at the beginning of 2006, the goal is to get to the playoffs. After that, who knows what happens. Not that anyone expects an 83-win team to take the Series again, but you get the point: The Cardinals can compete in 2007. That's all that matters.

I'd like to have seen a better effort to go after Schmidt.
especially in 2004 when I thought we were an awfully strong team (and then we got Walker!)
