Is this a misremembering or oversimplification of Whitey's exit. He said in "You're Missing a Great Game" that he left in large measure because of the new, less supportive ownership, no?
Also, Ryan needs to stay. His dismal average this year is not representative of his career numbers. A return to form is statistically almost inevitable. Get middle infield "pop" from 2B but don't lose Ryan; his glove and incredible range (check his UZR) save a lot of runs and he is one of the few Cardinals with good wheels.
