    We'll know who these guys are in about 2 weeks time. Man, that is a brutal stretch, Cardinals, Cubs,@Cardinals, @Brewers, Nats. Woulda been nice to have Turner for all of this, but hopefully he is back healthy soon and it'll be good to have Forsythe in the lineup. Fingers crossed that yesterday was a sign that AGon is getting off the schneid and maybe that HR gets Joc some confidence. Rotation looks about ready to be set with Kershaw, Hill, Maeda, Wood and McCarthy. So it will be interesting how the team goes forward now with Ryu.

    I dont find that shirt racist at all.
    If you cant take a little jab at your purported weaknesses then you prove 1 of 2 things.
    1. You have a warped sense of humor and cant laugh at someone trying to prod you where you dont like to be poked.
    2. You feel like that the spot being poked IS an actual weakness and therefore recoil in ego pain from someone poking at it. Which is even sadder.

    How is mowing lawns a weakness and what does it have to do with pujols? Like, before even getting into how racist it is or isn't, or ignorant, that shirt is mostly dumb as it makes little sense in relating to Pujols.

    i'm actually looking forward to it
    tired of playing the nl west, particularly the rox and giants
    nl west has 3 of the top 4 records in the nl
    could/would be even better if not bating up on one another
    as far as the standings go, we're ½ game better than the brewers, 2 games better than the cards and 2½ better than the cubs
    the next 2+ weeks will be interesting

    Mid-western humor is well renowned. :D. Exactly right about mowing lawns because if it was considered easy everyone would do their own.

    I thought he was Mexican because he is from the southwest or something, right?
    I cant remember. I just remember he was a huge mastodon of a man and was probably 5 years older than his papers said. And looked like a Mexican guy i knew.
    \Either way, it is not racist or ignorant. It is busting balls.
    You know who hates busting balls?
    Little bitches, because they have none.
    And they are your ball busters.
    And if you say that its the same thing.
    Then you clearly still dont understand what I am saying.
    And why you dont understand the difference between busting your opponents balls (or even a guy on your own team, hello Yasiel), and racism.

    And of course by you i dont mean YOU but WE.

    they're still bitter that albert left
    not sure why... would they prefer to be saddled with his contract?
    or maybe it's something only "the best fans in baseball" see, and we outsiders couldn't possibly comprehend

    It is not a weakness. You did not follow the point.
    It is a perceived weakness by an enemy.
    An enemy pokes at your armor to find the chink.
    Once he finds that vagine he will try to stick it in.
    Of course if when he pokes and finds no chink then he has no way in.
    You have not been weakened.
    But if he does find a way in then he proves his gambit.
    You are weak. Because you failed to cover your six.
    Which means that because someone poked you and you flinched/cried/yelled/hurt/etc... you proved that whatever was poked is an open wound. Is a sore spot. Is the weak link in your chain mail.
    Like if my dad mowed lawns for a living and my mom washed toilets.
    If people knowing that information somehow embarrassed me, or makes me feel anything that is not a good vibe then it is a weakness. If on the other hand when people call me a beaner whose parents are wetback servants who "mow my lawns and clean my toilets" and i get offended, my pride/ego damaged, i get mad, sad or whatever... then it is 100% a weakness and any enemy/competitor worth his salt is going to exploit it.
    Even if it is just at the level of a dumb t-shirt.
    That is why you dont let them see you sweating blood.
    If you make a big deal out of it, others will too.
    Then you will have folks mocking you on eBay selling your 'heroic' bloody world series socks because you think too damn highly of your own self importance.

    Yes.
    Most people do not follow along logically.
    We have been programmed to read a little then anticipate the rest.
    When the words that come are not in the realm of what is anticipated the brain disconnects.
    That is why politicians win.
    They give you what your ears crave. To be tickled.

    Racist or not racist(?) that shirt is clearly meant to throw shade at a player who was the cornerstone of the Cardinal's franchise for a decade. The most ironic thing is that the net worth of everyone combined who has ever worn that shirt, sold it, or high-5'd someone wearing it, is less than the net worth of Pujols himself - meaning it is a million times more likely that one of those dudes will mow Pujols lawn sometime in their lifetime, than it is that Pujols will mow their lawn.

    Fuck the Cardinals.

    It's crazy that this has to be a big deal, but it is.
