How Would You Affect STL Cards History?

How Would You Affect STL Cards History?
  • The Cardinals are starting up their newest #NestFlix promotion with #BirdToTheFuture.  While I'm not sure that it's really the theme of the campaign, it does prompt a little discussion of Cardinal history.

    So a couple of questions:

    Where would you go if you could travel to any time in the Cardinal past and, #2, what, if anything, would you change back there? 

    Would you find a way to keep Scott Rolen around?  Never trade for Khalil Greene?  Make sure Steve Carlton stayed in St. Louis?  All of Cardinal time and space are open to you--what's next?

  • Since my Cardinals fandom began in 2000, I really don't have far to go back but the one thing I would change is Rick Ankiel's meltdown in Game 1 of the NLDS.

    Whether that would have meant keeping Mike Matheny from getting that hunting knife or whatever, I would have loved to see how Rick's pitching career continued to develop.

    Oh, and I would have reversed the outcome of the 2004 World Series and made it a Cards sweep. That amazing season needed a better ending, especially after the incredible NLCS.
