I saw very few Cardinals fans at the Park the last two games. As in almost none. It could be because they also wear read. Or it could be because they got a serious  beat down. I'm sure getting beat like this by the lowly Washington Nationals is severely their world view.

I went to one of their message boards after game 2 and it was dire.  They were so angry at all of their players and wanted to blow the entire team up (which is funny because before the series started, they assumed they were going to roll over us).  I can't imagine it's any better today.

They overachieved this year and were lucky the Cubs collapsed. I am sure they will be competitive the next couple years but they are not a dynasty in the making. I can’t remember the Cards having a prolonged stretch of bad years. They are very lucky as fans that their team is almost always good. A bad stretch such as the Reds are going through would be nice and they could test their fandom.

That is cool.  Fitting picture of one of the few outstanding Cards players from the series.  He was a beast at the plate (but was clearly out of his depth in the field).

True. I think it was because of the beatdown. There were far more of them in 2012.

I was there in 1999, and they had great fans. Of course this was when (Big Mac) McGwire was hitting home runs like crazy!  Thats when they started "Big Mac land" in the old Busch stadium. If a player hit a homer into the Big Mac land section then all fans would get free Big Macs. I think it happened 2 or 3 times that year. But... they have had good/great teams over the years, and the fans show up. This is an easy concept to grasp, but Peter Angelos just doesn't understand  :roll:

I still can't believe the Nats smashed them that easily.

sorry if it’s been posted already, but has anyone seen a link to Charlie and Dave’s call of the final out by Robles?

There were probably more there than we could detect - only not wearing St Louis shirts & jerseys.

I saw very few Cardinals fans at the Park the last two games. As in almost none. It could be because they also wear read. Or it could be because they got a serious beat down. I'm sure getting beat like this by the lowly Washington Nationals is severely altering their world view.
