  • Branch Rickey was good at seeing what the problems were usually, and figuring a cheap solution until the money was around to make even MORE money. (Axiom: takes money to make money.) The Cards had a cash-poor franchise before 1920. They were smart to sell off assets (a ballpark) to fuel a cheaper way to get ahead. Renting for a spell – and locking that in for quite awhile – and building a franchise from the Midwestern corn-fed boys on up. Other teams saw the successes of this formula and mimicked the Rickey plan.
