Morning Pixels: The Giants take shots at the Cardinals
By Dan Steinberg , Updated: October 16, 2012 (edited by Mitlen October 23, 2012)
A whole bunch of Cards' fans said the depressing end to their team’s season meant they were checking out of baseball for a while, and would rake leaves or practice sonatas or watch pro skeet-shooting instead of tuning into the World Series. Maybe this will help change their minds.
Not content with recording one of the most magical and improbable returns from the dead in baseball elimination history, a few Giants had less than complimentary things to say about the Cards in a long piece detailing the comeback.
Now, the gist of the comments — the Cards choked because they had never been there before — might have some basis in fact, but it’s still kind of rude.
Among their comments:
* “As one Giant said, ‘Motte looked like he didn’t want to be out there. I mean how do you save a game when your team is down 9-0? “
.... etc. Payback is a nag.
