All i mean is that the cards-reds rivalry is more dependent on how the two teams are playing. Unlike the series against the cubs and royals. Though both are bad teams they are often a thorn in the cardinals side because those teams take alot of pride in those series, as do the cardinals.
I pretty much agree with you here except the Royals part. I think it's more of a rivalry from that "fanbase" stand point than it is for Cardinals fans. Many Cards fans aren't saying to themselves "boy those dastardly Royals are coming into town. Lets get them!". However when the Cardinals play at Kaufman Stadium, it's always a sold out place (in part because Cardinals fans fill the stadium). I don't see it as a rivalry from a Cardinals fan standpoint.
