    I think most fans around the league appreciate watching super star players. They root for their home team to win but still respect and admire talented players like Pujols even though they play for the opposition.

    Pujols was still #6 in MLB jersey sales in 2010, so some people apparently still like him.

    Re: Cardinals discussion thread

    I was just curious, I missed the post game show has there been any stink about the pitch that was up and in on Brandon Phillips? I mean, according to Don Tony you don't throw there. So then how was it there was a pitch up and in to Brandon. And then after it looked like the pitch hit BP the "best fans in baseball" all started to cheer.

    Respected and admired as a player, absolutely, but he's never seemed particularly loved, or hated, for a star. I think that, if you don't have a dog in the fight, and aren't watching that closely, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of personality that comes across from him to create strong feelings in most general baseball fans either way.

    Rule is, you don't throw there to Cardinal hitters. Anyone else is fair game.

But it wasn't a kid, it was a grown adult, and that leads me to believe there was a reason for this. I mean, come on, it's a baseball. I don't see the big deal.

    What can I say, I give kudos to Albert for the interaction with the Brewers fan.

    I'm sure if there were "circumstances", we would have heard it.

    Instead no defense has been presented.

    I'm sure King Albert thought it was hilarious toying with a Brewer fan.

    Yeah, huge joke.....

    Why do you assume we would have heard it? If this was Braun, a Brewer, and not Pujols, the Cardinal, it wouldn't even be mentioned anywhere on this site. Pujols has a track record of kindness that can't be ignored, whether we despise the Cardinals or not. So me an elite athlete that doesn't have an ego and a touch of arrogance. I'm not saying what he did was ok, clearly it's rude, but I hardly think it smears his character.

    While the rude episode was mentioned on every Cards site I read daily, there was nothing that explained it. I certainly would have heard it.

    Many, many elite athletes don't have large ego's and even more have zero arrogance.

    Think Ken Griffey Jr. Tony Perez. Adam Wainwright.

    A touch of arrogance? Pujols bathes in arrogance, then rolls in it for good measure.

    Lol, this is priceless. Now the Cardinals are complaining about the field conditions AT THEIR OWN FIELD! http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseb...581d9ba3d.html

    And, apparantly, Pujols and Holiday think it "wasn't fair" that the game started at 3:15 p.m. due to the shadows.

    This team never fails to amaze with its incessant complaining. It's surreal at this point. Yet the alleged "best fans in baseball" continue to boo Brandon Phillips? At this point, I wouldn't even say STL fans are the best fans in the Central Time Zone (Minnesota, Milwaukee).

    Question: The other team has scored 7 and 4 in the games cited. How can this be? If the Cards can't hit it, how possibly can the other team be expected to play under such horrible conditions--and score also.

    I'm going to make a mint off my Cardinals' excuse shirt.

    I'm not sure what Pujols and Holiday had to say about the shadows (which is stupid and ridiculous by the way) has anything to do with the fandom. The two are completely separate issues.

    By the way, the Braves just lost so that puts the Cards 6 1/2 games behind them in the standings. What is interesting is the Cards have a 3 game series this weekend with the Braves at home. The chances of the Cards winning the Wild Card is slim but it sure will be interesting if the Cards happened to sweep the Braves this weekend (which probably won't happen). Still, this weekend series will be interesting if you are a Cards fan hoping against hope that they can pull it out. It will also be interesting for Reds fans that despise the Cards to the point where you look at every single article, pick out every little thing, and point it out as evidence of whining. I mean, wouldn't watching the Cards fall down to the Braves this weekend eliminating any hope for the Cards be like baseball porn to those Reds fans?

    No, the Cards simply being the Cards is like porn to those of us who loath LaRussa and company.
