The media loves to go on and on about how Cardinals fans are the best in baseball. The media says lots of stupid shit.
This week, Cardinals fans had a chance to show just how the best fans in baseball would react to a great player doing the a favor and not clogging up their payroll for a decade after he’s already started to slide down the backside of his career arc.
