    I hear you, but seeing the Cards lose (or, as many of their fans like to spell it, "loose") heals all wounds.

    I'm with you. The Pirates currently top my "enemies of goodness and freedom" list.

    This division series have actually become my favorite part of the postseason. Lots of baseball going on and TBS broadcasts are infinitely better than Fox. Baseball is so much better when Joe Buck's not talking.

    Frankly if Walt can't muster sufficient rage and pluck from watching this board's favorite whipping boys the Pirates march to a pennant because of his embarrassing inactivity, then he deserves every ounce of his humiliation. If I'm Castellini, I'm emailing Walt every headline announcing their pennant victory and celebration until he either quits or listens to people smarter than he inside the organization on trades for monster bats (as opposed to rag armed 500 lb relievers).

    I agree, but how do we know that it wasn't Cast telling Jocketty to stand pat?

    The Pirates look like this years version of the Giants. They have their Hunter Pence in Marlon Byrd and a bunch of guys that grind and aren't terrified of the moment. The Pirates made the moves to improve their team maybe more than any team in baseball at the deadlines. They are fun to watch right now.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Yep, pretty much...

    My hierarchy: Baseball Fan > Reds Fan > Cardinal Hater

    There is not a team on earth I won't pull for if they are playing the Cardinals.

    Is Julian Tavarez still doing anything that could be interpreted as being in baseball?

    A few games where a few fans act like jerks doesn't come close to overcoming that.

    Pirates have always been a classy organization, even if some of their fans were not. Can't say the same for the Cards.
    Other than Jason Grilli acting like he's never recorded a save in his life each time he does, and Jared Hughes, I don't have much against their players. It's worth noting, though, Clint Hurdle has been quite whiny himself.

    For the reasons Tom mentioned along with the aforementioned, I'm also finding myself pulling for the Cards in this series only.
