As a rare divorced (from the Cubs) Cubs fan and a Ranger convert beating the Cards woud be sweet. That said I really respect the cardinal fans. They are baseball smart and classy. I hope it only goes six but a game seven would be awesome TV.

Bullshite. Cardinal fans are no different than any other baseball fan.

1. Cardinal fans jizz in their pants on routine fly balls to medium-depth outfield. Just like everyone else.

2. Cardinal fans boo pick-off attempts to first base in high-pressure situations. Just like everyone else.

3. Cardinal fans scream "BALK!" on the fake-to-third-throw-to-first pickoff move and when pitchers pivot toward second base to look runners back.

4. Remember the great roided home run chase of 1998? Cardinal fans booed EVERY SINGLE BALL thrown to Mark McGwire, as if pitchers should have grooved him a fastball.

5. So Cardinal fans applaud a nice sac bunt? BFD. Most baseball fans appreciate a well-placed sac bunt by the pitcher, or in late innings.

I can find smart and knowledgeable baseball fans in every city. Kansas City has them. New York has then. Chicago (Cubs) has them. Heck, I bet even Tampa and Miami have them. This whole "Best Fans in Baseball" crap is just that - crap. The only reason Cardinal fans believe that is because they have proclaimed themselves as the best.

It's because of that I hate the Cardinals as much as the Red Sox and Yankees. Eff 'em all.

This is hilarious. I never understood why Cards fans always refer to themselves as "baseball's greatest fans". Have they sold out the most consecutive games or something? Do they stay up all night reading books on baseball strategy?

Go to a Cardinals game in St. Louis. You'll understand.

It's on a similar level to that of AFH and KU basketball.

Never taint the good name of Jayhawk fans by comparing or even mentioning them in the same sentence as cardinal fans.

As they say, don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

Fortunately for me, I consider myself to be a fan of the two greatest fan bases in their respective sport(s).

I respect the history, but I've been to a game and I agree with what jaihaux said

I'll say it again: The Rangers have the most undisciplined hitters I've seen in postseason.

I've gotta say, the only fan experience that's rivaled the Fieldhouse for me was Game 163 in the Metrodome between the Tigers and Twins in 2009. Capped off a stunning run by the Twins and was potentially the last game in the history of that godawful building.

Is it just me, or has Tim McCarver outlived his usefulness as a color commentator?

Nice Avatar Painter. Alex?

Tim McCarver sounds like the generic commentary they put in video games.
Indeed it is Alec.
