Honestly, this site is better than most. As far as St.Louis blogs, the Post Dispatch site, CardsTalk, can be a bit tedious. Like many sites, their is a pecking order (perceived) and a lot of border skirmishes. But for the most part, it's like most sites. You have your knee jerk reactors, your devout homers, your objective posters (who are perceived by homers to be trolls) and your voices of reason.
For me, I enjoy getting the perspective from other sources. The same reason I make a point of listening to the other team's announcers, I enjoy getting the feedback from other team's sites. I was on the Brewer's site this weekend and have spent time on the Pittsburgh site. I used to visit the Cubs site, but have gotten away from it. Their posters are a bit too angry and disrespectful for my taste. I can deal with it when they're relevant, but that's not the case recently (okay, you can argue 103 years relevant
I still post on a couple Cardinal sites regularly, but there are lulls in the conversation from time to time. That is when I visit this here swell site.
I'm not here to provoke, just share in some baseball discussion. I appreciate your attitude towards " outsiders ". I have always enjoyed feedback from opposing team's posters, and actually have little patience for fellow Cardinal posters who take it as a personal affront when another team's fans chime in.
I was raised in Queens, N.Y., so I enjoy a little diversity. It makes for a better forum, IMHO.
