Don't know how I missed this post by Luke Timmerman yesterday, but he was highlighting an upcoming Xconomy sponsored conference called "Building Biotechs to Last". But the best part is that he used my home team Cardinals as the example for the principle -- which is basically having a sustainable model -- in the Cards case being able to constantly develop new talent and/or finding low priced players to augment the team. That way there never seem to be too many periods of drought where the team is not successful -- no matter which players are los to free agency, retirement or injury.
Of course, you know by now that the Cards were bested last night by the Boston Red Sox (congrats to Sox) -- but it was the Cards 4th appearance in the past 10 years -- winning twice -- and many of the other years were spiced with playoff appearances too. I'm sure "Building Biotechs to Last" will be a good conference -- but mainly this afords me the opportunity to plug the Cards (and their model) one last time this year. Thanks for an exciting season.
