Deadspin: Why Don’t The St. Louis Cardinals Respect The Game?
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”
