The people who need to just take a chill pill are the ones who imagine that there was a time in history, that elite athletes didn't occassionally show up the opposition.
and maybe i am disremembering but seems to me i remember a video of ted williams hitting a walkoff or his last homer or an ASG homer and celebrating as he passed first base. then again, BITGOD, ted williams was a Bad Example of a ballplayer, wasn't he? i forget what he did so bad, but the sportswriters knew ALL about it
"there was absolutely nothing about the outcome of the play that negatively affected the team one whit."
As Mattingly noted, at least one of the Cardinals pitchers went crazy after a big strikeout. Mattingly didn't get upset. So for the Cardinals to whine about Puig is... whiney.
And as pointed out in the other thread, the whining is being overblown by the blogosphere.
So Beltran didn't say:
"I'm in the outfield," Beltran said. "I mean, it's not great. To me, I don't like it. But what can I say? I don't play for them. I just play over here. I just need to do my job. It is what it is."
If this qualifies as whining to you, you have thinner skin than I imagined possible.
While true, it seems now players (McCann, Price, Wainwright, etc) are being strongly criticized for *responding* to the showing up. Athletes have always responded to being shown up. It doesn't make McCann racist or Wainwright a jerk. Like most of us would in that situation, they got a little ticked off.
Sure, "Cardsfanboy." I mean, we don't even have to argue that you're a Cards fanboy. It's right in your name.
"I didn't see it," Wainwright said. "I saw Adrian doing some Mickey Mouse stuff on third base, but I didn't see what Yasiel did. Those guys are fired up. This is playoff baseball, they want it over there.
Really? Wow, I know you are pretty much a total social idiot, but seriously, you aren't going to fall back on the old "your name argument says it all."
Cash has almost always been high on the hipster reverence chart -- probably the late 70s, early 80s would have been his low point
cardsfanboy, you long ago eroded any credibility you had on this site with regard to intelligently and level-headedly discussing Cardinals-related issues. If you want to spout forth some opinions on the Detroit-Boston series we'll probably take you seriously, but everyone around here has long since learned that your opinions on the Cardinals are usually batshit insane and not to be taken seriously.
Sorry, don't see it.
Why wouldn't this qualify?
