New Year, New Team

"We change, whether we like it or not"

      — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy New Year everybody!  I am personally delighted to see 2007 end, although I can’t say I’m overly enthused about the Cardinals’ prospects for 2008.  I’ll try to keep an open mind but I’m going to be bitter for a while over Jim Edmonds being traded.  I mean, I had to modify the description of my blog to delete his name – that signifies a big, hard change. 

I do wish Jim the best with the Padres, and I know, realistically, his career was ebbing. But I will miss the acrobatic catches and the clutch hits, and, well, I’ll just miss looking at him. I also think we should have been able to get something more for him. 

I’ll miss So Taguchi and his Japanese media entourage.  I’ll really miss the Little Eckstein That Could.  It seems there will be a lot of new Cardinals to get used this year, and I am sure there are more deals on the horizon. 

Well, I’ll try to be optimistic about things and get over losing Jim.  I’ll be visiting St. Louis to attend the Winter Warm Up in a couple weeks, so that should inspire me. 

Thanks to Jim, David, and So for all the great Cardinal memories, and good luck with your new teams!
