    We are not mocking the Cardinals enough

    Yeah, I'm going there with this thread. I'm one of the biggest Cardinals-fearing posters around, but they look bad and we should revel in it while we can.


    They announced a press conference a little while ago and it got fans hopes up but it was just to announce that Kolten Wong is back off the DL and Jhonny Peralta has been DFAed.

    To be fair, they did fire a couple of coaches. Which is of course the reason they have lost seven in a row.

    Listened to the Cardinals announcers yesterday (because Thom) and they spent a long time making the argument that the play was probably a botched play by the 2nd baseman who came in at the wrong angle. Seemed to have trouble admitting that (a soon to be 35 year old) Yadi can have one sail on him

    Yeah, Edmonds said that maybe the second baseman was supposed to cut the throw off for a possible play at the plate in case the Reds were going to try a steal of home. To which I thought, "Yeah, Yadi would have thrown it over his head, too!"

    I know someone disagreed with me earlier this year, but the Molina contract extension - 3 years until he's 37 at $20 million a year makes me laugh (unless of course he's got some Barry Bonds thing going on).

    Reds have won seven of nine versus the Cards this year. If only we played them every game.

    I saw what you (or someone) did.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
