Deadspin: “Has David Freese ever crossed home plate before? This isn’t the NBA, buddy”

(KTVI) – The writers at the sports gossip blog ‘DeadSpin‘ have their sights set on St. Louis.  Last week’s article “Why Your Cardinals Suck” by Drew Magary enraged Cards fans in the Mound City.

Now, another Deadspin writer is doing his best to make enemies in the Gateway to the West. Tom Ley’s “Why Don’t The St. Louis Cardinals Respect The Game?” is making Cardinal fans heads spin.  

The article is a mash-up of animated gifs of the Cardinals celebrating during Game 4 of the NLCS.  His point is that Cardinal fans may complain about the Dodger’s “Mickey Mouse Celebrations” but the Redbirds are far worse.

This is an excerpt from the article:

“After last night’s loss to the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLCS, a few Cardinals players expressed dismay at some of the exuberance that was displayed by a few Dodgers players. “Mickey Mouse stuff,” one called it. We at Deadspin share the Cardinals’ concern for the soul of baseball. We want to see the game played the right way, which is why we’d like to see the following behavior eradicated from the diamond.

Here’s Michael Wacha showing up Juan Uribe after striking him out to escape a bases loaded jam in Game 2. Wacha’s just 22, so we blame his veteran teammates for not getting in his ear and letting him know that such behavior is unacceptable”

    I JUST WANT TO LET THOSE DEADSPIN CHARCTERS KNOW THAT THE CARDINALS FANS ARE APPALLED BY YOUR PETTINESS OR SHOULD I CALL IT PITIFULNESS. WE ARE VERY PROUD OF OUR TEAM AND THE WAY THEY CONDUCT THEMSELVES ON AND OFF THE FIELD. ALL PEOPLE HAVE REACTION AND EMOTIONS, WELL MAYBE NOT YOU GUYS BUT MOST PEOPLE DO. AND DIDN’T YOUR MOTHERS EVER TEACH YOU “IF YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING NICE, DON’T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL?” HERE IN MISSOURI WE ARE CALLED “THE SHOW ME STATE” SO THAT’S ALL WE’RE DOING IS SHOWING YOU HOW GOOD WE FEEL ABOUT WINNING!

      Dear Cardinals fans,
      What deadspin has done is not only beautiful but it’s been a LONG time coming. As a fan of a certain team in the central( not going to say because you’ll just call me a jealous “blank” fan) the cardinals have been eating every ounce of disguisting available. Cardinals fans in your own stadium 9-10 times a year is awful. Oh cardinals fans travel well you say? So do other fans they just don’t mouth off and humble brag while they do it. Oh and let me tell you just so you guys know, NO ONE IS JEALOUS OF YOU. We hate you because you have no awareness of how awful you as fans are. You are all complete self centered glory whores looking for another score. Congrats on your 100 championships and inventing baseball but please stop reminding us, as a fan base and organization you’re duke basketball without any self awareness. Congrats!
