2 Maccabees 3-4.
Deuteronomy 28: 1-14.
Glad Allen Craig got paid. He's another Game 6, and Game 7, hero.
Only problem is that now he is signed for multiple years, he'll likely be injury prone the rest of his contract. I'm betting at least one season of the five in which he will barely play. Or won't play at all.
It's the Cardinal way. Rolen, Glaus, Edmonds, Carpenter, Wainwright, Izzy, Ankiel, Lohse. Who am I leaving out, in recent history?
Only Yadi and Pujols are exceptions to this rule.
Considering the Cardinals recent track record, this bet is easy money.
