Front Office: Branch Rickey/Walt Jocketty/John Mozeliak/Jeff Luhnow
Let’s hope Jocketty and Mo can bury the hatchet here. Without a doubt these four guys are the best at what they have done in the Cardinals’ front office. Each of them have titles attributed to their success and have shined at different eras and different skills.
Mo has done a great job with this farm system. Luhnow did a great job developing what we have today. Walt did a masterful job of pulling the wool over the eyes of other GMs and acquiring almost half of this roster, as well as trusting in Larussa/Duncan when they wanted to dumpster dive for guys like Carpenter and Lohse.

Rickey was a cornerstone figure in this league and established the early history and success of the Cardinals. Rickey managed guys like Horsnby and found talent like Dizzy Dean, Joe Medwick, Stan Musial, and Enos Slaughter, and led this team to a total of four titles during his time with the team.
There you have it folks, the absolute best St. Louis Cardinals 28-Man Roster. I expect this team to go 162-0 and sweep the playoffs. It doesn’t get any better than this! If only we could really gather this team together and see them play at least one game.
