Shame on any Cardinal fan dumping on Albert Pujols

Hey Cardinal fans.
Tell me that these are just a few bone headed isolated incidents.
Please tell me that nitwits like this guy don’t speak for you.
Show some dignity and have yourself heard over these idiots.

I respect the hell out of St. Louis fans so tell me that you are making fun of this person.
I shouldn’t be calling them the Cardinals.
So tell me that you remember that…
That you remember Pujols getting 3 homers in Game 3 and getting the double that started the game tying rally in Game 6.
In fact I am not going to insult Pujols by listing his amazing resume.
He’s Albert F*cking Pujols!
He just gave the Cardinals 11 brilliant seasons.
And guess what? The Angels will be paying for his twilight years.
Pujols didn’t owe St. Louis fans a damn thing.
Did I forget LeBron’s two championships in Cleveland?
Did I forget LeBron leaving it all on the floor the way that Pujols played his guts out for the Cardinals?
For more than a decade Cardinal fans had the privilege of watching the most exciting player of this generation in his prime… no positive tests… no scandal… multiple championships… What more did you want?
Should Reds fans have burned Pete Rose’s jersey when he went to the Phillies?
Your reputation as classy fans are second to none, Cardinal Nation.
Don’t spoil it by acting like spoiled petulant kids.

People who hate the Yankees and Red Sox should be happy

Over the last few off seasons, I’ve heard lots of bellyaching, complaining and people angry at the Yankees and Red Sox for going on wild free agent shopping sprees.

It wasn’t fair.
How can teams compete?
The rest of the league is just the farm system for Boston and New York.
And they buy the World Series every year (forgetting that more often then not, neither the Yankees nor Sox are even IN the World Series.)

Well last year the Phillies put their flag in the ground to make it three teams that buy everyone up.

And THIS year?
Hey big spenders in Anaheim and Miami!

A few years ago nobody wanted to sign with the Angels and the Marlins had a payroll lower than what Jose Reyes will make a year!

And the Nationals seem to want to spend money and the Blue Jays want to make a splash. And don’t count out the Rangers (who have as many World Series appearances in the last 7 seasons as the Red Sox and Yankees combined).

And did you notice who seems to be sitting this free agent season out?
The Yankees and Red Sox.

They may bid on a Ryan Madson or an outfielder, but the idea of them buying every player is out the window.

There are other buyers out there.
Maybe there will be a “Miami – Anaheim” bias to replace the Northeastern bias.

Rejoice Yankee and Red Sox haters. Your wishes are coming true.
