I have to be honest...I haven't been paying much attention to the Cardinals.  But I noticed something last not...very, very disheartening to a Cubs' fan:

 

We are all excited about Baez, Almora, Bryant, etc....well, they already have

 

 

Lance Lynn 26. Shelby Miller 22, Joe Kelly 25, Michael Wacha 21, Trevor Rosenthal 23, Kevin Siegrist 23, Adam Wainwright 30....

 

that's half of a damn good pitching staff that is very young

 

they also have Matt Adams 24, and they actually have one of the top hitting prospects in Oscar Tavares, and best pitching prospects in Carlos Martinez...

 

this really bummed me out...here is my radical plan....it's time for realignment!

 

SOUTH & WESTERN STATES LEAGUE- Dodgers, Cardinals, Giants, D-Backs, Padres

SOUTH & EASTERN STATES LEAGUE- Marlins, Braves, Nationals, Reds, Phillies

NORTHERN  STATES LEAGUE- Brewers, Mets, Cubs, Pirates,  Rockies.

 

you may question my geography skills....

That article is a perfect reason to fucking hate Cardinal fans. Do they not realize how douchey they are? lol

God, I am literally shaking with rage right now. I hate them so much... Flames... On the side of my face...

 

But yeah, that "article" is the *perfect* crystalization of why I hate the Cardinals. Yes, part of it is that they win a lot. Yes, a lot of it is the fact that I'm a Cubs fan. But mostly it's *their* fans. That article puts it right on display. As though saying that you can't hate the Cardinals would make it so. They really believe all that crap about them being the best fans in baseball and being likeable underdogs. Newsflash: the money doesn't matter. The Cardinals aren't the underdogs, even against the freakin' *Dodgers.*

 

And the smug head-patting that article directs towards the teams whose dreams have been shattered is just the worst.

 

...

 

Sorry, this has been building for a while and I *really* need to let some of it out. I need to find another outlet.
