    Re: Cardinals Call 1:30 CT Press Conference

    Who's going to whine about the baseballs when the Cards come to Cincy now? Who's going to re-ignite a brawl and pretend he did nothing now? I will miss him like I miss all the other mules that I no longer have to see...

    There's a difference between competitiveness and just being an ass. Carpenter was/is both.

    Carpenter was fined after his yelling match with Reds manager Dusty Baker led to what he called a "melee." He said the worst part of the aftermath wasn't the scratches on his back or neck from where Cincinnati's Scott Rolen grabbed him in an apparent peacemaking move but having to answer to his 7-year-old son.

    "Dusty had something to say, I had something to say, and the next thing you know all hell broke loose," Carpenter said "I come home and try to explain to my son why is Scott Rolen attacking me? Why is everybody pushing you into the net?"

    Okay, thanks. Yeah, it's strange -- I figured out the RZ function of the expression (general snarkiness and character assassination of our arch nemesis) but I lacked the history.

    By question here is who will be the go to target now for you all? TLR and Carpenter is gone. I guess Molina can be another source of angst but are you really going to go after Jon Jay or Daniel Descalso?

    I won't miss him. He is one of those guys who I just don't like, along with people who don't respect other people's cultures, and of course, the Dutch.

    Duh! You answered your own question. Plenty of hate for "Neck Tats" around here.

    I am sad that the Reds can't destroy him now. I won't miss all the excuses he gave for losing

    True but him and Phillips have made up and you see them laughing at times. Yadi never really says anything controversial and isn't a jerk out there. He isn't on the level of TLR or Carpenter.

    Without Pujols, TLR, or Carpenter, it really only comes down to my general dislike of Molina and the facial hair of various members of the Cards' bullpen.

    eh...I don't really dislike Molina. He's not a whiner like TLR and Chrissy. He's just a hothead. I don't get the kneck tatoos, but to each their own as long as they aren't looking for me to hire them. No target needed in my opinion.

    Is the level of disdain from Reds fans toward the cardinals on this board representative of the whole reds fan base? Because i gotta say, cardinals fans don't feel that way about the reds at all. They don't like Phillips, but neither does anyone outside of Cincinnati. There is a rivalry from the brawl and both teams being competitive right now but it seems like reds consider the cardinals their #1 hated rival when there are probably 5 teams that I consider the cardinals to have bigger rivalries with. Those teams being chicago, KC, NYM, Astros (though that one is over), LAD.

    Hopefully Shelby Miller carries his arrogance onto the mound and Oscar Taveras annoys Reds fans in the near future.

    Other Cardinals players will rise up to be disliked by Reds fans but I don't think anyone will ever touch Carpenter.
