Jocketty Shown the Door

Walt Jocketty, GM of the St. Louis Cardinals was fired today with one year left on his contract. Given the reportedly close relationship between Jocketty and the Cards’ manager, Tony LaRussa, this probably increases the probability that LaRussa chooses not to return as their manager. If that happens, it will be a strange coincidence that the GMs and managers of the last two NL pennant winners have been fired/changed in the same year. Maybe not too surprising though, as neither team really had the depth to be a dynasty.
