Once again Mo has failed the Cardinals in the "Adding Players" department. Khalil seemed like a good investment, but we are being proven time and time again why it was a bad one.

I read a bunch of articles on how bad this was, I didn't listen. I was glad to have a good hitting SS for the Cardinals. One that could provide insurance for Albert. Ya know everything doesn't turn out as planned, but Cardinal fans were failed partly by the General Manager and partly by Kahlil himself.

Now I understand Anxiety is a serious issue but what he needs isn't stints on the DL he needs to be in AAA or AA  working back up to were he knows he can hit pitchers again he can field again. Build up the confidence to play in the big leagues again.

Stints on the DL are just bad for this. They provide no playing time. Khalil, I wish you the best of luck though.

#1- He had the power! He hit 27 homers in 2007 with a .254 AVG and 97RBI's.


#2- The fielding! He has a .975 FPCt in 7 seasons.


#3- He was just a great player. He could hit, field, had speed. He wasn't a 5 tool player, but he is just good.
