    Matt Holiday conveniently forgives Peralta

    Amazing / sarcasm -- out spoken critic suddenly decides to forgive one player for PED use --- and the player just happens to be a new team mate -- I did not see any mention in the article of him forgiving any other players.

    Take one step back, inject some B12 vitamins and all will be OK. I guess Holliday is in a non-baseball pickle. Nice to know that the Cardinals FO consults Holliday before signing people LOL.

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    In Holiday's defense there really wasn't much else he could say in that scenario. That being said here's hoping that both Holiday and especially Peralta have terrible years.

    Is it still ok to hate the Cardinals?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I say yes. Just don't say 'lucky'...Mike Thierry goes off his noodle.
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    This doesn't change that Holliday still believes Peralta should have been suspended for a full season. Nothing he can do about a new teammate. I still say the signing was the best available option especially considering how heavily front loaded the contract is, making it easier to move him in the future if necessary, and it didn't cost a draft pick.

    Additionally, the cards still have lots of available cash. In fact, the reds payroll has surpassed the cardinals. As a Cardinal fan, it really annoys me to see big market clubs like SF, Chicago, LA, and Cincinnati spend their way to divisional titles while regular places like STL have to compete with less resources.

    Its sarcasm. The reds payroll has surpassed the Cards this season, and it was only year ago when I would read on here how upset people were by how much the cardinals were able to spend. People would go so far as to say the cardinals are just like the Phillies, Cubs, and Giants.

    I guess the reds are now like those clubs

    Whadda guy. As the Bible instructs us, Mr. Holliday, first take the syringe out of your butt, then you can take the syringe out of your teammates' butt.
