Tony Womack may be a great guy. He may work very hard. He’s a far better baseball player than I’ll ever be. But he’s not a good ballplayer at this point. He hasn’t really done anything very successfully on a baseball field since he eliminated the Cardinals from the playoffs in 2001. Which, as you might imagine, still rankles.

And now he’s a Cardinal.

But at least he has a purple Lamborghini!

As the folks at the Cardinals Birdhouse say, “How can you not like a guy who has a purple Lamborghini?

Well, in this age when people don’t have to take responsibility for their predictions, I guess Sports Illustrated will be okay despite clearly picking wrong in the National League Central.

I was going to post my picks this week, but I’ve been too busy with work and with hours on the phone trying to alter the car reservation Jim made. There is no reason to get a Taurus when we could get a purple Lamborghini.
