That's not to say anything of all of the Cardinal fans who simultaneously said Heyward sucked and they didn't want him anyway while acting like him coming here was the biggest heel turn ever.

My favorite part of that, is that it's a KC site, and they have a poll at the end..."Do you think the St. Louis Cardinals should be the official baseball team of the State of Missouri?" Good poll guys!

My favorite part is that the results aren't even close. A resounding NO by a nearly 90% difference. GREAT poll guys!
