Through the entire regular season even, its "Cards win again! Wainwright is the best! Yadier Molina is the MVP!", etc. Just nonstop bragging and fist pumping about how much better the Cards than everyone else. And you're on the San Francisco fan website. You're the fan that dresses from head to toe in Cardinals gear and marches around AT&T Park chanting "Cards rule! Cards rule!", then you get upset when the mass of opposing fans tell you to shove it.
You dont see half the board on Val's back. He doesnt talk a ton of crap, and is realistic about the Braves. The Cards win, and you go digging up some year old post I made about Wainwright not getting over 100 mil. because of his age and injury. What was the point of that? Its taunting, which proves our point. And considering that 32 year old SP's coming off major injuries dont usually get 100+ mil longterm deals, that attempted insult doesnt really make me look bad. Kudos to Wainwright for doing something unlikely.
Literally NOTHING you just said is true.
Pick fights? I never asked you to come into the Cardinals/MLB/Dodgers thread and post all this crap. What I originally said was me playing around and a response to all the Zito/2012 LCS crap John was posting in the MLB Postseason Thread. 4ML (Giants fan) didn't flip out and get all pissy. Had NOTHING to do with the Dodgers/Cardinals series...yet he is talking about Barry Zito/2012 LCS for the millionth time. You guys seem to find it funny playing around/talking s**t regarding the Giants winning against the Cardinals, but get all upset when someone else says something back. Like I mentioned to Rubber and NJ, don't talk trash if you can't take it back.
You just sound jealous right now honestly...like I'm doing something wrong posting Cards win again, etc...in the Cardinals thread
Sorry that bugs you so much. Earlier this year Wainwright and Kershaw were basically toe to toe in who people thinks is the top NL pitcher..he was pitching very well at the time...a lot of people (including some of your fellow Giant fans) feel Yadier is a deserving MVP candidate. Everything you listed are very realistic thoughts. If someone was to post "PETE KOZMA FOR MVP/LANCE LYNN FOR CY YOUNG!" you'd actually have a legit point. You're making it sound like I'm wrong for supportive and passionate about my team. Like you have never bragged and got excited about your team. (how long did we hear about Buster Posey 24/7?) Give me a break.
at the "SF based website" crap again.
Half the board? Uh no..its a very select few Giants fans...ALL Giants fans by the way....no fans of any other team. Kinda ironic huh? Nobody is on Val's back because 99% of his posts regarding the Braves are stuff he gets from Twitter. The Wainwright post was me clicking on the Cards thread and noticing that..not much "digging up" to do when its on the first page.
It is just another example of the ridiculous stuff you post from time to time. (even NinerJohn/a fellow Giants fan can agree here) I watched Wainwright pitch as soon as he could coming off the injury. He is now one of the top pitchers in the NL again, so I think his deal was pretty decent.
