Sure, I get upset once in a while during a game when things go wrong. But I never let it worry me that much to take it home. After we lose a tough one, I go home, drink a martini and eat a big bowl of chili. Then I go to bed.
You can’t please the fans in November or December anyway. It’s such a temporary, inauthentic fix. The only way to make fans happy is to be playing in October on a consistent basis. It’s the only way.

Yes, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, because all of the Cardinals players play for free, right, just for the love of performing in front of the BFIB?
Let’s not forget, if salary is an issue for you, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, that the Cardinals had the highest payroll in the NL Central. That title is for sale, then. Just not the ugly trophy with all the flags.
