The guys at the Cardinal Conclave are working on a tournament of Living Cardinal players and are looking for brackets; the deadline is this morning, but readers might be able to slip it in by early afternoon.

Cardinal70 breaks down the bracket. The #1 seeds are Ozzie Smith, Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, and Bruce Sutter; unsurprising since they are 4 of the 5 living Hall of Famers.

C70 even gives his prediction on the winner...the Wizard of Oz. It's not hard to imagine that Ted Simmons, a #2 seed, would be upset by Mike Matheny, a #7; it's disappointing though as Simmons is a truly underrated players for the Cardinals. It's also disappointing that Albert Pujols is only a #5 seed; people have quickly turned their backs to one of the greatest Cardinals ever because they were spurned by him leaving. Why focus on that when you can look at his 11 years in a Cardinal uniform and marvel at what he did? There aren't 2 World Series Championships without him.

The winner of the tournament will in a 2011 World Series Game 6 BluRay/DVD pack, a must have for any true Cardinal fan.
