mlbtraderumors.com (yes, they have been wrong before) says the Cards have negligible interest in Lohse, tthat hey prefer to get the #1 draft pick compensation.
As for as the Cardinals' fans...I don't care what sport you're talking about, claims of "we have the best fans in all of the sport" always rub me the wrong way, and that has been a frequent claim by Cards fans over the years. It similarly used to tick me off to hear the Cowboys fans claim the Cowboys "are America's team."
Good rivalries comes from competing for the playoffs, and certainly the rivalry between the Reds and Cards had heated up only over the past few years. Let the teams settle it on the field.
Leave the postulations about having "the best fans in the sport" out of it.
