Exactly. Cards had trouble selling out their home games for the NLCS. I'd expect much better from the self proclaimed "greatest fans in baseball".

I'm sure there are a lot of people wearing their new Cards hats out there now. Less than a week old with the tags still on them.

I think this thread needs to be deleted. Obvious troll thread whose responses just make me want to split my skull.

That makes no sense. You only have 7 heads.

I wish I could find that old Joe Posnanski column where he ripped apart Cardinals fans being the so-called "best in baseball."

At least Royals fans are realistic about who and what they are. Cards fans....delusional.

The whole "Best Fans in Baseball" bit is silly. I believe it was glossed by Peter Gammons around 2000. It's a stupid discussion to have - completely subjective and the criteria is almost impossible to set.

With that being said:
Any objective person cannot say with a straight face that St. Louis is not one of the best baseball markets in America. On-the-field success, tradition, attendance, and TV ratings all spell this out. But is River City superior to Boston or NYC or Chicago or Philly? No way of really knowing.

Clint, that's a great post. Every city (except for probably Miami and Tampa) has great baseball fans. Kansas City is a great baseball town. Chicago, Boston, New York, Detroit, etc., all have great baseball traditions and fans. Cubs fans appreciate a good sac bunt from a pitcher as much as St. Louis fans. Mets fans go nuts for routine fly balls to center field, just like Cardinals fans.
