View Full Version : Other Sports Advice on NL team

I'm not a huge baseball fan. Don't get me wrong, I like it, go to several games yearly, and enjoy the ease of it. But ultimately it's just a placeholder in my life between other sports I'm more passionate about.

As I recently posted, I'm moving away from KC to Texas. I'm not giving up my Royals fandom, but after I shell out DTV buck for other sports, chances are that I could never see the Royals on TV.

So I was thinking of finding an NL team to root for. Here's where I'm at with it. Maybe we can have a tournament to select a winner.

Initial thoughts;

No Cards (anti St Louis)
Cubs? Maybe, though I'd oddly feel I was jumping on a bandwagon.
Astros? In the same state, don't know much about them, except their ace is demanding a trade.
Brewers? Young, seem to be fun. But in the long run am I really solving my "won't see 'em on TV" dilemma?
Giants? Decent pitching, love the stadium.
Dodgers? I dunno...
Colorado? Hate the Avs and Donks, so it could be weird.


Any other thoughts?
Anyone wanna make an argument one way or another?

I don't drink Budweiser because it sucks. The Cards do not suck. In fact, they've won more championships than all the other teams on that list combined.

Shouldn't you wait till I pick a team before you start talking trash?

I'm actually specifically not using winning (right now) as a main criteria. Don't want to be a bandwagon guy. But my hate for St Louis runs deep.

And I was gonna say 'this' but I guess it's really not an option for you. I used to share your STL hate but being removed from MO now, I find myself rooting for pretty much all teams from MO.

I'm even a KU fan that roots for MU. (Except for when they're playing each other.)

Well, if winning isn't a criteria, and I applaud you for that, then I think you have to go Astros, considering you'll be living what, an hour or two from there? Gonna be on TV whether you like them or not.

If you're not going to see Royals games, then why pick a NL team who's games you won't see either?

Yeah, Cubs are probably the next best bet, especially with your "winning's not a criteria" stance.

They'll never win anything, and games on WGN.

Sounds like a fit as well.

Then again, can you handle rooting for THREE teams that can't get the job done - win, or come close to a Championship?

I mean, Jesus. Don't torture yourself.

Funny thing is, the people I've met in Texas have no idea what or where KC is. I was bitching about a national steakhouse chain they had just got one of, and I mentioned their prime rib tasted like hot dogs...
... A very "Texas" lady said, "it probably has to do with the beef y'all got up there."

I spent most of my summers growing up in various parts of Texas, and from what I've gathered is that for the most part, people there have no idea there are other states.

I've had a similar exchange with folks down there before.

"Where y'all from?"

"St. Louis."

*puzzled look*

"Where's that?"

I'm with you on the anti Cards and yes I've lived outside of Missouri and no,never cheered for the Cards.My hatred for them stems from my college days almost 30 years ago and I've cheered for the Cubbies since.

Notable reasons to cheer for the Cubs

1.Even living in Texas you'll see games on WGN
2.Fans are everywhere,hell the Cubs are playing the Astros today on WGN and there are Cub fans all throughout the stadium.
3.Losers or not the fans are loyal,fun,and just overall awesome and Wrigley/Wrigleyville is the promised land of baseball and partying.

The Giants didn't win any of their 5 Championships in San Francisco, and The Dodgers won one of theirs in Brooklyn.

If I was talking to someone who didn't know what St. Louis was, I think that would be the end of the conversation. That is an unacceptable level of ignorance for anyone living in America.

Hell, I live in LA and I don't think I've met anyone who didn't know what KC was. Of course they typically think it's in Kansas, but that's a mix up I can understand.

I would say 13 is more than 10, so the Cards have not won more than the others combined. That is all I said. If you count W.S. appearances the Dodgers alone have more than the Cardinals.

Just making a point. Some don't consider championships won in a different city. Some do. If I were a Giants fan I personally wouldn't be all excited bragging about a championship they won in a city 3000 miles away.

Obviously you have a bone to pick, or you wouldn't have even challenged it, nor added the blurb about WS appearances - which had nothing to do with the conversation.

Personally, I could care less. I'm pretty happy with our 10, all won as St. Louis Cardinals.

Either way, both were done as either the Kansas City Chiefs, or the Kansas City Royals.

Just a hypothetical question to gauge thoughts on this:

Suppose the Chiefs only SB win happened as the LA Chiefs. Then they moved to KC and you became a fan.

The have the next Albert Pooholes, Griffey Jr, Hank Aaron all wrapped into one on the roster. Jason Heyward. They also have the NL leading hitter in Martin Prado. They are an exciting team to watch.

If you start watching him now you will be one of the people who got to say that they watched his entire, and likely record setting, career. That said, its a good team who is on a smoking hot streak at the moment.

If you have an anti-STL bias, the Reds are the way to go.

A) Major tension between the two clubs right now with the Jocketty/Rolen thing.

B) Two teams that look to be challenging each other for the next 1/2 decade.

C) The Reds have a very storied history and have generally been a class organization (Schott insanity excluded).

D) The Reds have a lot of very likeable players on their squad.

I'll go into more depth if needed, but the Reds would be the way I went without question. Followed by the Gnats, Marlins and Rockies.

Young Reds:

Votto -- Is already one of the top 5 LH hitters in baseball.
Bruce -- Heyward before Heyward. So very close to breaking out in a big way.
Stubbs -- Power/speed combo, could be a 25/25 guy some year.
Chapman -- 100 mph flamethrower with solid command, fun guy to watch.
Cueto -- Nasty slider. 5'10'' and 150 lbs, managed by Dusty Baker -- enjoy him while you can.
Volquez -- Very good young pitcher that already got his Baker surgery out of the way.
Leake -- 5-0 with a 2.22 ERA; never threw an inning in the minor leagues.

Likeable Vets:

Rolen -- Easiest player in baseball to root for. Everything a professional athlete should be.
Phillips -- exciting power/speed 2b with a plus glove
Cabrera -- still a pain in the ass for opponents
Gomez -- I hate hate HATE Jonny Gomez...because he's a Red. I'd love him in STL.

The Reds also have the guy I feel is the best GM in baseball in Jocketty. While Baker sucks, he'll choke on his toothpick and die someday.

Then when you add in the working class fanbase and the history of the Reds, it's a very good team to root for.

I'll hate you for it, but the Reds/Cards rivalry sure seems to be shaping up as a fun one for a long time.

Pretty much the same thing with me and the Cardinals. Asshole fans in college ruined it for me.

No, it's really not.

I'll rep you the answer.
Why did you give me an explanation for the Montreal Expos logo when we were talking about the Milwaukee Brewers logo?

That's fucking weird. I posted this in response to the post with the old Brewers logo, and the code is still in my original post:

The Rockies are a fun team with some nice young hitting and pitching - Carlos Gonzalez, Ubaldo Jiminez, Jhoulys Chacin, Tulowitzki - and some solid prospects on the way. I make a point of watching their games when I can. If you can get past the Denver thing, of course.

I spent most of my summers growing up in various parts of Texas, and from what I've gathered is that for the most part, people there have no idea there are other states.

I've had a similar exchange with folks down there before.

"Where y'all from?"

"St. Louis."

*puzzled look*

"Where's that?"


IMO, a citizen of this country should have NO problem knowing where the 50 largest media markets reside.

"Charlotte? I've dated a girl named Charlotte."

"Oh, you mean there's a city named Charlotte?"

If someone doesn't know where St. Louis is, they're a blithering fucking idiot and should have their citizenship stripped immediately. Make them honorary Canadians or something.

Funny you mention that.

I've told this story before here, but my wife and I spent our Honeymoon and 1st anniversary in Whistler, British Columbia Canada.

Out first night in Whistler was Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, and I knew it before the trip, so I packed my autographed Chris Pronger Team Canada jersey (won at charity auction) and we found a sports bar in the village to watch the game.

The place started to crowd pre-game, and a couple asked if they could share our 4-top table.

They asked where we were from, and we said we were on our honeymoon from St. Louis.

"Missouri, eh? Think the Blues are taking Erik Johnson in the draft?" (the NHL draft happened a few days later, we were picking 1st overall)

Word spread that we were Americans, on Honeymoon, me wearing a Team Canada jersey and rooting for Edmonton, and we didn't pay for a drink all night.

We've spent close to 20 days over two trips to BC, and EVERY time we've been asked where we're from and responded, "St. Louis", people knew it was in Missouri.

Doesn't sound like much, but pretty cool in a foreign country. Especially when there are jackholes in your own country that have no fucking clue.

They were able to buy your drinks because of the money they save on socialized health care, which is a GREAT idea. Get r done, Obama.

But he doesn't want to be a Cards fan.

Plus the Padres are 2-1 against the Cards this year. I checked the Braves, but they are 0-4 against the Cards.

Yeah, the Montreal Expos logo makes a M for Montreal but the last half of the M is a b for Baseball and the beginning of it you can see a red e for Expos.
