Jocketty out as Cardinals GM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that general manager Walt Jocketty and the Cardinals have had a "parting of the ways." Jocketty apparently was eased out in a front office power struggle that is too complicated to explain using a BlackBerry keyboard.

Read the article before worrying about White (and Ng) leaving the Dodgers, the Cardinals' will keep their current Scouting and Player Development Director in place so I cannot see either White or Ng taking a job where they could not bring in their own scouting people if they wanted.

Shouldn't the Dodgers have to win something before our execs get poached?

I would expect LaRussa to follow in a few days, though I suspect it will be his own decision to step away.

Early whispers are that the Cardinals are ready to get serious about building from within and taking a new approach. There may be an assistant (to the) GM in San Diego getting a phone call soon...

3 This is a pretty hands on ownership also a rabid fan base and not exactly a cupboard filled farm system.

I think they stay in-house.
