Cardinal fans will recall that Tony La Russa, when justifying his decision to relegate aging Hall-of-Fame legend Ozzie Smith to the bench, said something very similar about a then up-and-coming shortstop named Royce Clayton. Clayton's numbers were respectable, but the kid could have hit .400 and still would have come out a loser in a Redbird-nation straw poll. Herring, Hart and the revamped Dead have a summer or so to prove that they don't deserve such a Claytonesque fate in the eyes of their devoted Heads.
