It should come as a surprise to exactly no one that my hatred of the Cardinals is still alive and well. But now, I get to experience the patented Cardinals Self-Righteousness from St. Louis itself. That's right, I'm in St. Louis tonight, passing through on a road trip.
There is a Cardinals store on the first floor of this hotel. I'm guessing it would be frowned upon if I go in there and start booing everything loudly.
Oh, get ready for this lineup. Are you ready? I don't think you are. Seriously.
|ST. LOUIS CARDINALS||PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES|
|Kolten Wong - 2B||Ben Revere - CF|
|Matt Carpenter - 3B||Cesar Hernandez - 2B|
|Jhonny Peralta - SS||Maikel Franco - 3B|
|Mark Reynolds - 1B||Ryan Howard - 1B|
|Jason Heyward - RF||Jeff Francoeur - LF|
|Yadier Molina - C||Cameron Rupp - C|
|Randal Grichuk - LF||Domonic Brown - RF|

THAT'S PHILLIPPE AUMONT STARTING FOR THE PHILLIES TONIGHT.
FOR THE PHILLIES.
Whatever your argument is, it's irrelevant. This is either going to be better than any of us dared to hope it would be, or it's going to be an unmitigated disaster along the lines of Tuesday's horror movie bloodbath.
