the inherent sh1tting of magical pixie dust that occurs whenever a player puts on a Cardinal uniform, but it's a step in the right direction
“We found nothing negative about him.”
You see the same phenomenon with the Yankees. I'm sure that part of it is good coaching, but I think it's also that success breeds success. These players are joining good teams with great track records, and the overall level of excellence might allow the new players to relax and play with more confidence.

the Cardinals are capable of making a mistake
Obviously the Cardinals are capable of making a mistake but maybe they just simply do a better job of recognizing how to get the most out of a player. Whether it's the scouting reports or a stat-based approach they are presumably seeing something that makes them think these players will work out.
If they get anything positive out of Ty Wigginton, though, it'll be the greatest miracle since Jesus walked on the water
Their last three, before Mike Matheny (retired Cardinal who was a Gold Glove catcher) were Whitey, Joe Torre, and Tony.
Well, when I think of championships, the first name that comes to mind is Ty Wigginton.
If I recall correctly, this is not the first time Noble has sung Wigginton's praises. He said a year ago or so that the Mets stopped having a winning culture after they got rid of him and one other mediocre player.
I think all us Cardinal fans tend to conveniently forget the Mike Jorgensen Era.
Now that I think about it, I've wondered about something relevant for decades, so now is a good time to ask - Has anyone seen or played enough softball to know whether that fast pitch that seems to "hop" right before it reaches the plate actually rises or is an illusion? If it's an illusion, it's a damn good one. I tried to hit it when I played intramural college ball, but just gave up and relied on the fact that pitchers at that level can't throw it reliably for strikes. I know one college women's softball pitcher, and she could throw the thing when she was young, but even she wasn't sure whether it actually hopped or if that was illusion.
