Hello

"Hello".
First time poster. But a Cards fan.
So I thought I'd start here.

To tell the truth, I'm just beginning (over the past few years) to get back into baseball after being away for ... oh ... the last 40 years or so.
They tell me that Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese no longer do the NBC Game Of The Week - "... brought to you by Schlitz. The beer that made Milwaukee famous".
:-)

I did manage to win my H2H league last year. Mainly on the strength of Pujols and great pitching.
But I'm definitely going to need some help.

Welcome to the Cafe! And glad to see baseball was able to pull you back in after such a hiatus! ;-D

If you frequent the "Fantasy Baseball Talk" and "Trade, Keeper and Waivers Questions" boards, you should be more than prepared for the upcoming season.

You'll have to excuse some of us for our offhanded, less-than-complimentary Cardinals' remarks. It's not because we hate. It's because we care. (Well, except for me. I still have a chip on my shoulder when it comes to them) ;-D ;-D

Thanks, "Bell".
My 1st love as a kid, so long ago, was always baseball.
But, I admit it, I've far-and-away been an NFL fan for most of my adult life.
But. I don't know ...
Seems like as I get older (I'll be 50 in April!) MLB just keeps calling to me. It's weird.
Come baaaack. Come baaaack.
The NFL has changed so much, so much parity in the league, it's become less than it once was for me.
While baseball is just always there. Tradition. History. America. Year in. Year out. You know?
I'm hoping this site can help pull me all the way in.
I'm still at the point right now when I can't sit down and watch a game on a Wednesday night in April because there's 110 games left to go!
Help me! :-)

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Thanks, DHC!
Good to hear from you again.

And ... pssssst ... don't tell anyone over at the Football Cafe. OK?
You know, of course, they widely consider you guys "The Dark Side Of The Force".
LOL! :-D

Just out of curiosity, Bell, what are you bitter about? I seem to remember your guys (D-Backs) knocking us out of the playoffs a couple times recently. Oh, and of course Cintron's play at third where he dislocated Rolen's shoulder and knocked him out of the playoffs also comes to mind.

Anyway, welcome to the cafe Weasel. Were you a regular on the Football site?

Well, that incident between Cintron and Rolen was an unfortunate accident. No doubt Cintron's inexperience could be attributed to that. And you guys knocked us out the last go-round.

A few things:

1. Steve Kline. He gave up the game winning hit in the 2001 playoff series, then Kline was a sore loser and mouthed off after we knocked the Cardinals out and went on to the World Series.

2. Tony La Russa. Just because he's Tony La Russa and he's as temperamental as they come.

3. Tino Martinez. You don't get a baseball thrown at you if you don't have a premeditated attack on someone. If you're going to be a man and attack a pitcher for pitching high and tight, have the gall to charge him right away. Otherwise suck it up and move on.

And on top of that Martinez gets his suspension reduced, if I remember correctly.

Of course now there will be no more amazing Schilling/Morris matchups. :,-(

Totally forgot about that Tino thing. You know what, there is no way that anyone is happier than I am that he is no longer a redbird. That guy was a disaster in my opinion. As for Kline, you're right. I love Kline's tough guy attitude, but any time he opens his mouth you know he's gonna offend someone. I really don't think he's a bad guy, he just can't shut up. Just look at the verbal battles last year with the Cubs, he said some really dumb stuff. Then there's Tony, he will always be a-hole. Okay, your bitterness is recognized. !+)

lol....I definitely have nothing against Cardinals fans. ;-D

Obviously our two teams don't have a "real" rivalry, but our matchups often seem to produce something noteworthy and I'll continue to look forward to our future series.
