Ya it'll probably be at least a month since they will bring him back slowly. At the start of the year I thought they'd finish under .500 this season...well if the players keep dropping like flies, after that good start it'll come true.

I don't think it's the juice. I think it's his age that will catch up to him and blindside the Cards fans that truly believe he's still in his 20s. The guy is at least 35 by now.

Pujols started a foundation dedicated to the development and care of people with Down Syndrome and their families. This foundation also reaches out to impoverished families and children in the Dominican Republic.

He accidentally broke a catchers ankle on a legit slide into home as a result of the catcher covering the plate. In your mind this incident makes Pujols deserving of a strained calf sidelining him for weeks? :clap:

Frazod said it right, his fielding is atrocious. Not only does he look uncoordinated and uncomfortable in the field, but his instincts are bad too. He virtually never gets a good jump on a ball. Alot of his problems may come from the position he has been asked to play for us. He seems like a natural first baseman, but with Pujols in our lineup he never gets much playing time there. Guess we will see shortly.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. We don't have that problem in KC. First base is wide open, unfortunately.

Why is that? I lived my first 21 years in KC and developed my love the Chiefs. I liked the Royals, but the mess that ensued after the death of Ewing killed any interest I had in them. I moved to St. Louis in '98 and you can't help but fall in love with the Cardinals. They just do it right here. Baseball, that is. You can't find a real NFL fan here if you tried. Besides, American League baseball is a joke anyway. C'mon, designated hitters?

This could turn out to be a good thing. The Cubs are deep with outfielders and Sorianos leg still isn't 100% so it gives him time to rest and come back fully ready for the pennant race. If we had the Cardinals lineup I would probably shit my pants but productive bats are pretty easy to find this year for the Cubs.

You are not loyal. I'm talking about loyalty, like your dog. Through thick and thin. If I moved to Chicago. I would hate the Cubs. I would wipe my ass with cubby bear toilet paper. I went to the University of Iowa in Iowa City,...which is pretty much Little Chicago. It's like 2 and a half hours or so from Chi Town suburbs and the school is more than half of them. All my friends were Cub Fans. I now hate the Cubs with a burning passion. Would refuse to sell out to such things. If KC had a NBA team, I would root for them. If I moved to St Louis, or any other place I'd be more inclined to hate that team more than like them.

Cub will probably play both Reed Johnson and Edmonds quite a bit with AS out six weeks. Also look for Micca Haufpauer (SP?) to get some additional playing time. The kid can hit, the only problem is he is a 1st basemen and that Cubs are set there. He's been playing left field so maybe they can move Fukudome around a bit.

Who am I not loyal too? Are you kidding me? I drive across the state 10 times a year, bought a shithole house in Independence across from the stadiums just to have a place to stay when we're there, and I'm not loyal? Why would I owe the Royals my loyalty? Just because I'm from there? Like I had a choice? Loyalty isn't sticking by something because you have no choice. Loyalty is CHOOSING to stand behind something, regardless of the alternatives.

I suppose you are a diehard Sacremento Kings fan right? I mean they were the Kansas City Kings and all.

I was not alive when the Kings were in Kansas City. Besides, if a pro team moves, then it is not part of your city any more and you move on. That's right, you did not have a choice. It is like family. Your dog. Your dog cannot pick it's owner, but will be obedient to you and attack any body that enters your lawn.

Rule of thumb, anywhere you move to once you graduate from college you are not allowed to root for unless you have lived there before in your childhood for an extended period of time and/or born there. The exclusion to this rule is if you move to a new area and such as Phoenix from Kansas City. It would be OK to become a Suns fan due to the fact no NBA team is established in Kansas City.

I am confussed I am from neither from KC or St. Louis but live in Missouri. Grew up with liking the AFL style of play and KC Chiefs where the more dominate fan base in the area (SW Missouri) growing up so I followed them. I also preferred the NL style of baseball growing up and the Cardinal being another Missouri team I have followed and been a fan of theirs for a long time.

Okay, How many time do we have to explain this? Jezus H. Christ…

<O:p
My son is a 5<SUP>th</SUP> generation Cardinal fan. Think about that for a second……………Since around World War 1 my family have been Cardinal fans. Because I’ve been up here in KC for 16 years now. You really think I should have change allegiances ?
<O:p
I grew up in <ST1:p<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on">Springfield</st1:City>, <st1:State w:st="on">Mo.</st1:State></ST1:place> The vast majority of sports fans in that area are St. Louis Cardinals baseball and KC Chiefs football fans. It has been that way for generations. Probably started that way because at the beginning of the radio era the Cardinals games were being broadcast on KMOX that went out to like 35 states or something like that. The football Cardinals just never caught on with the fans in SW mo.
<O:p
I grew up listening to the radio and occasionaly watching Bob Gibson, Lou Brock on the TV. I got to watch Lenny the Cool throw to <st1:City w:st="on"><ST1:pTaylor</ST1:pl </st1:City>on Sundays. We are fans of the teams we grow up with. That’s just the way it is unless you bandwagon onto a new team.
<O:p
You just don’t understand the feelings that Cardinal fans have for their team. They are not simply fans they feel a real emotional attachment to the team. Something they shared with their Dad, a remberance of childhood days watching the Cardinals etc. You should read my thread about seeing a the 2006 WS championship won live. What memories do you think my son is going to have when he’s 60 years old about being there with his Dad to see a WS won live? It truly is priceless.
<O:p
And it really saddens me that the die hard Royal fans will probably never get to experience that feeling. So don’t be hating because we are loyal and the Cardinals are successful.

I think being a fan of Chiefs/Cards fan is 10 times better than those Royals/Cards fans or the Kansas/Missouri fans just because they like to see "local teams succeed" They stick to there allegiance instead of just rooting for who is better. Two different sports means you can pick two different teams IMO. You don't have to just root for one city.

Also off topic the Cubs game today is an ultimate throwback. Not only are they playing in there throwback jerseys, but the game is in black and white as well. 60th anniversary for WGN covering there first Cubs game.
