We like to make fun of the Cardinals around here. Rivalries, and all.
Sometimes we have to stretch a bit, and chuckle about how semi-decent trades have probably turned out poorly for us. Sometimes they make it easy for us by grounding into triple plays in their final at bats, or getting picked off third base to end a game, or getting a ball stuck to their chest protector. And that’s all just Yadi Molina!
That is to say, sometimes the Cardinals just tee this stuff up, and I have to marvel at my own good fortune that I get to laugh about this stuff. Like what Adam Wainwright just said on the Fox broadcast of the Braves-Marlins game:
Adam Wainwright just said on the Fox broadcast that half the Cardinals–including Paul DeJong–are flat-earthers and moon landing conspiracists. What a world we live in.

"I had to battle half my team thinking the Earth is flat this year. And they think we've never been to the moon and all kinds of crazy stuff. I've got a bunch of Flat Earthers… Paul DeJong, smartest guy on the team, is a Flat Earther. " – Adam Wainwright

The Flat Earth Theory, as the name implies, is the baseless conspiracy theory that the Earth is flat. Like, pre-sailing the oceans flat. Like, every satellite and spaceship and scientific instrument and Amelia Earhart are fake. (Er, well, I guess Earhart did disappear, so I guess she simply flew off the edge of the flat Earth.)
Everyone is in on it, by the way. I am part of the conspiracy by writing this post! Trust no one! Believe only the Cardinals!
In fairness to the Cardinals, if you had to spend half your life in St. Louis, you’d probably getting into some crazy YouTube material.
