Probably trying to get a DL stint to start the year so he doesn't have to face Rizzo.

I get the feeling BFsIB will start asking to trade Fowler by the end of spring training.

If something as basic as someone's wife and daughter wanting to see their relatives dings in your reptile brain as being "anti-Trump," then maaaaaaaaaaaaybe it should be clicking that you have chosen very poorly in your life.

It comes as very little surprise that the Cards fan from Pekin, IL thinks this, considering he lives in a town that's high school nickname was the Pekin Chinks until the 1980s.

Yeah, unless that USA Today article left out quotes I don't get how you see what he said as "anti-Trump." He just basically acknowledged that it affected his personal travel plans and that was unfortunate, essentially.

If you question any aspect of the Supreme Leader, you are anti-Trump.

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

My Soph. year of high school, we had a track meet in Pekin. Just outside the track was a sign that said "Coloreds must be in by dark."

This was in 1996.

It wasn't there the next time we went to Pekin, so we're not sure if it was just some idiot who posted the sign, but it looked legit. Either way, it was a good indicator of what kind of horsefeathers Towne Pekin is.

There's so many places you can go with this.


After watching the video that Sammy posted about Mackey Sasser...Ankiel's story interests me.

Helluvan article. And with so, so many fans speaking out against Dexter, it's amazing how quiet the Cardinals organization is. Stick up for the guy!!!
