I've noticed it, too. It stems from many years as divisional rivals in the N.L East. From what I can recall, many Cards fans were upset that Keith Hernandez was dealt to the Mets, even though, as it turns out, the reasons for dealing him were justified.
That stated, I'm fairly certain that Generation Y fans do not view the former Cards/Mets rivalry through the same lens as older Cards fans.
