Why have the Cards folded once again like a bad Spades' hand? One would have thought that experiencing yet another disappointing collapse after making moves before the trade deadline would have caused some heads to roll by now.
But the only thing rolling is the mighty Mississippi River not far from Busch Stadium. The once-mighty Cardinals have inherited meekness and the agony of defeat. The thrill of victory turned into the repeat chaos of collapse—a self-created false-flag crisis without a cure.
Last year, it was Ryan Ludwick who was dealt and watched the Cards collapse. This year it was Colby Rasmus. Razzies aside, the deciders deserve Bronx cheers and St. Louis salutes (boos).
Maybe the Cardinals folded because of the general manager, manager and owner who watched it all happen without speaking up against the powers that be.
