The ability to be their puppet.
I won't go so far as to chide them though I really liked Mike Shildt as manager.
I will wait a season and see how the Cardinals do. If they somehow turn into a juggernaut, then I'll cheer along.
However, if Shildt finds another job and outperforms the Cardinals....then that's when I'll have my fun with the front office.
Classic d!@k move though, doing it by phone!
