Anyone else in the STL area see La Russa's press conference

I haven't read it, but I assume it's probably stuff Cards fans bring up to Cubs fans all the time - it's just that now it's the media bringing it up. La Russa doesn't want to disturb the baseball gods 1 season removed from a World Series - especially since they've lost the majority of their pitching, they need the baseball gods on their side.

I don't consider the Cubs to be rivals anymore. I can't stand losing to the Astros.

Really? I definitely consider the Cubs to be our rivals... but I agree, I hate the Astros more and more every year...

Who won more h2h games last year, the Cubs or the Cardinals? The Cubs won 2 matchups last year...Cincinatti and St. Louis...

I do have a lot of respect for the Cardinals organization, last year I was on vacation in San Diego and finished my book so I figured I'd get whatever baseball book had the best words/ $$$ ratio and read "The Spirit of St. Louis", a history of the team. Congrats on winning when it counted, even if you couldn't beat us.

Here's the original article. Hard to see what the excitement's about. It pretty much sucks.

We couldn't win when it didn't matter either. But at least I was at the 4th game of the 4 game sweep of the Cards last year. Too bad i couldn't make it to the first sweep.

Before you go pointing to the scoreboard let me ask a question - if the Cards are so much better than the Cubs, why are the Cubs the Cards' main rival? It's like Goliath choosing David for his opponent. Wouldn't a team that is God's Gift to Baseball be better served by choosing a better, cooler arch-rival?

Cards fans kill me. You pick the worst team in baseball and say "We're better than you." ;-7


Sounds like a bunch of nonsense to me. First of all, it's not like Cards fans are the only ones calling this a rivalry. Second, wouldn't you think there's a bit of history involved here? Third, I'd say geographic location has something to do with it. Sounds like you're grasping for straws here. :-B
