Unfortunate. That means you missed this gem.



He's such a passive aggressive turd. He just refuses to accept the obvious.

If they don't appreciate and value the blank expression of Mike Matheny then you should just tender your resignation immediately.

"It's easy to paint the Cardinals roster as mediocre, but if you look at their 131-125 record since the start of last year then it's easy to see this is true."

In one more game played, the Cardinals have scored 63 fewer runs and allowed 40 more runs than the Cubs. Greg Holland and Tommy Pham account for the entirety of this disparity.

I can see where this guy is coming from. A half season can be a small sample size and when you have a strong model you might want to believe that variance is the only reason that the season's results are lined up with your model/beliefs. The problem is this guy was dead wrong from the get go.

Criag Edwards seems to follow the same line of logic the majority of those guys have over on that VBs board. And by line of logic I mean totally delusional, living in outer space view point of their team.

Nah, Italians are fine as long as they get back to [expletive] Hill by dark.

Do you want to make Cardinals fans more insufferable, because that's how you make Cardinals fans more insufferable!

http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/2411 ... -role-2020

Longtime Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina said he'd "welcome the opportunity" if he had a chance to be player-manager during his last contract year with St. Louis in 2020.

On the other hand, he probably wouldn't be very good at it.

Maintaining his career .741 OPS while piloting the Cards to a third place finish will undoubtedly cement Yadi’s place in the Hall of Fame.

1) kinda agree. Maybe just during regular season, more replays in playoffs.
2) no
3) eh he's a pitcher that likes to hit.
