If the Redbirds want to win, they have got to pull their pants down. This naughty-sounding theory has been floated by Frank Murtaugh, whose sports column From My Seat is a regular feature on the Flyer Web site. In a Fly on the Wall exclusive, Murtaugh writes, "Redbirds outfielder Ray Lankford a longtime St. Louis Cardinal in Memphis on a rehab assignment may have taught his teammates as much about dressing as he did swinging the bat. Lankford had the good sense to lower his uniform pants enough to cover the hideous horizontal stripes the rest of the club displays above their faux stirrups. Pay attention to the big-leaguer, boys."
