I can't imagine how pissed I'd be if I were on another pro sports team in the city who had to wear that. Imagine the Bears having to wear Bulls gear in a game.

doesn't seem like it'd be a big deal to me... weird especially with how few football games there are, but i don't see why the players would be pissed.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Maybe it's just me, but the hockey team has their own identity. No need to be reminded how much of a second fiddle they are in their town. It's demeaning in a way.

I'd feel the same if the Pels had to wear Saints gear during a game.

Ruben Tejada was removed from Thursday's game against the Yankees with a left quad strain and is headed to the DL. You know, the guy the Cards tapped to play in the absence of Peralta.

Cards activated Hazelbaker to fill the SS void, a guy who was left for dead by the Dodgers last season. Predictably, the BFIB are predicting that this guy will be their next Bo Hart.

Left for dead by another org and picked up by the cards to fill in where options A and B have both been injured? I dunno, sounds like a pretty likely mvp candidate to me.

He's not a SS, he's like their 5th OF. Gyorko and Greg Garcia are their SS for the time being.

Brayan Pena is currently dealing with a knee injury and could be forced to begin the season on the disabled list.

Eric Fryer has joined the team and would take the place of Pena on the active roster if he isn't ready in time for Sunday's opener. The Cardinals should have an update on his status early Sunday.

Your software needs an update. He's having knee surgery and is out indefinitely.

Pham to the DL with a strained oblique. Diaz called up.

Down two shortstops and an outfielder already? Man, it would be so nice to see the Cards dig themselves into an early hole.
