I Don’t Judge You For The Weed Smoke (But Selig Does)

Jeremy Jeffress has something to help you tone down that temper, Lou

Jeremy Jeffress has something to help you tone down that temper, Lou

To borrow a line from a song by Brother Ali, the NL Central seems to be rife with reefer these days. Just recently, Cubs catcher Geovany Soto was “reprimanded” for testing positive for weed at the World Baseball Classic earlier this year. His manager, Lou Piniella, shrugged it off and admitted to smoking once in his life – though I’m not sure ‘admitted’ is the right word there, because I don’t find it to be too big of a deal. Luckily for Soto, the test didn’t come during a MLB committment, so he isn’t suspended or anything like that.

Weren’t You Supposed To Suck?

In 2008, the San Francisco Giants were brutal. Comically bad. Well, they weren’t Washington Nationals bad, but it was close enough to make a comparison. If this were European soccer, the Giants would be rolling through AAA right now. But hey, this is ‘Merica, and we don’t send our crappy teams to the minor leagues. And thus, the Giants have taken the opportunity to redeem themselves so far in ’09.

The Cards made a move?!?!? You’re Joshin’

Get rid of that horrible jersey and we'll be in business, Jack!

That’s right Cards fans. This is what we call a deal that can be considered “LATERAL MOVEMENT.” In a type of late night deal that usually involves money, a meeting spot and a heavily concealed brown paper bag, the Cards sent Chris Perez and a player to be named later to the Cleveland Indians for third baseman (and former baby Bear) Mark DeRosa.

N.L.SoM: White Sox or Cardinals, who ya got? (Part 4)

nlstateofmind

It’s a question as old a time itself, if time started around the turn of the 20th century. A question discussed through the ages from Rogers Park to the Wild 100s, Lake Michigan to The Arch. It’s a question without a quantifiable answer, until now. Who should Cubs fans hate more, the Chicago White Sox or the St. Louis Cardinals? (Part one is here. Two, here. Three, here) Continue reading

Cardinals can fly. Cardinals fans? Not so much.

by Andy Paschen

Busch Stadium nearly actually became baseball heaven yesterday (but more likely hell, because I’m fairly certain that’s where Cards fans go) when a man fell from the upper deck at the Cardinals-Twins game. Apparently he’s fine, so I’m allowed to call him an idiot for falling from the upper deck. Gravity is not your friend when you are more than 18 inches off the Mother Earth readers. If he does end up dying, well, I’m pretty sure I was going to go to hell anyway. Here’s to you idiot Cardinal fan:
