    Re: Cardinals discussion thread

    As much as I despise Chris Carpenter, I probably would have reacted just as he did in that situation.

    Nyjer Morgan is a clown and there's no excuse for yelling profanities at a pitcher while on the basepaths. That's ridiculous.

    The Tony Plush stuff might be funny if Morgan wasn't such a tool in real life, but his actual persona takes away from any humor in his alias.

    Re: Cardinals discussion thread

    Several Cardinals use Twitter to interact with fans or other players, and La Russa was asked how he would feel if one of his players used the medium to taunt or ridicule another team or player.
    "If they ever use it like he did, we would ban tweeting," La Russa said. "I think it's over. We're not worried about what Albert is thinking."
    There's even a Cardinals approved way to use Twitter. They're just so dang perfect, how do they ever lose a game? Oh wait, they don't, they never get beat, there's always some excuse why they lost, be it slippery balls, shadows, throwing inside the wrong way, getting even close to hitting Albert, moths in ears, bad calls, and of course, in Cincinnati, "its always something there."

    That excuse shirt is getting mighty full.

    Morgan and Carpenter deserve each other, that's for sure. I'm thinking roomies in the Narcissicist wing of the local mental hospital.

    I despise the Cards as much as anyone, but I fail to see how they're in the wrong here. Nyjer Morgan has a history of being a wack job, hence his elbow thrown at Hanigan. And he's a big man, talking trash on Pujols on a social networking site. He's lucky Albert didn't get ahold of him on the field, it would've been a T-Rex devouring a chicken.

    Yes, I dislike Nyjer Morgan so much he leads me to defend the Cardinals.

    So, you would swear at every player you struck out?

    Morgan was simply reacting to a situation Carpenter started.

    I'm also a little confused that Carpenter has come clean as he didn't want people thinking he was a lair, by telling us that he is, in fact, a liar.

    At least we can add "liar" to Chris' resume.

    These Cardinals remind me of Dusty's Cubs his last year there. They've done about everything but call the radio booth and tell the announcers to stop criticizing them. Of course, with their homer announcers, that is no wonder.

    Absolutely stunning to me how this is just being brushed aside and excused.

    No, but I'd probably have words for somebody who was swearing at me from the basepaths in previous innings.

    Don't get me wrong, I hate Chris Carpenter. I'd say that's pretty well documented. But unless I'm reading the whole thing wrong, sounds like Morgan started this interaction.

    Agreed. Which is typical Nyjer Morgan. Actually, he'd be a perfect fit for the Cards. I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up there next season.

    He's like the Ron Artest of MLB.

    Wow, you forgot at least 100 of their excuses. My favorite after a road loss earlier this year: Unpredictable hotel room service

    Sad thing is that I always liked the Cardinals, up until Larussa. Probably will like them again when he is gone.

    Yes, and the Brewers are faltering. That's what happens when....oh, never mind.
