    Yeah, its not silly at all. To keep Maddon just because he won us our first World Series in over a century, while ignoring what has happened over the past 3 seasons, would just be personifying a loser mentality. Thankfully, the Cardinals proved that just about any manager can make the World Series in 2014.

    This needs to be pinned. So many people acting like the train is derailed

    - The window is open
    - The roster is talented
    - While he’s struggled the last couple years we still have one of the greatest front office presidents in the history of the game

    That's less than 20 posts per game.

    I like the idea of closing this thread here on page 162...

    Maddon made the playoffs 4 out 5 years. Lost the wildcard game last year, reached the NL championship series two other years, and won a world series the 4th year.
    As to taking a team to the world series, the playoffs are a crab shoot, the Cards have teams that led the league in wins, and did not make the series, and teams that snuck in on the last day with the worst record of the 10 teams and then go on to defeat the Tigers and win a world series.

    Your GM wants to run the show, as a Cards fan, I am glad Maddon will be managing the Angels next year.

    I, for one, am shocked a Cardinal fan thinks the Cubs made a poor decision.
