Tony better flip that switch NOW!
The more things change? Ballpark Village? Nothing but a parking lot and softball field for now
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Sunday that the “Cards want public money for Ballpark Village.” This in spite of the fact that they haven’t begun to build the part of the village they promised in exchange for massive tax breaks when they built the new Busch Stadium. For the time being Ballpark Village remains a combination eyesore and parking lot.
Thus the Cards joined the Kiel Partners who reneged on renovating the Kiel Opera in exchange for help building the Kiel/Savvis/Scottrade for the hockey Blues and the Rams who at least had the integrity not to promise anything in exchange for a sweetheart deal at the Dome at America’s Center/Transworld/Edward Jones Dome.
Bill DeWitt’s recent email to Cardinal fans would have us believe that a couple of good months early in the season made the Cardinals a “fun team to watch” but fans know better. This off-season it’s time to make management step up to the plate and deliver an improved team for 2009. If he wants to see 3.4 millionfans in the seats for a fifth straight season, he’s going to have to make it worth our while.
I guess we Cardinal fans can always hope that management will break open the wallet during the off-season: let a few moths escape and maybe capture a free agent.
Kyra Sedgwick is the Closer
Attention John Mozeliak: If you can’t make the trade, maybe you could at least arrange for her to guest star in the ninth.
Like most Cardinal fans, I’m just glad that we can finally stick a fork in our 2007 season and call it done!
It’s been a long strange trip from getting spanked in Chicago to the World Championship. Thank you Cardinals for the memories!
