Walt Jocketty is gone!

Walt Jocketty is out as Cardinals GM:
The tipping point occurred late in the 2006 season, when DeWitt promoted Jeff Luhnow to the position of Vice President of Amateur Scouting and Player Development.

The move, in effect, put Luhnow in an elevated position of authority and displaced Jocketty's lieutenants from running the draft and supervising the farm system. This left Jocketty embittered, and had a polarizing, divisive effect on the organization.
