Albert Wouldn't Expect Boos In St. Louis

Stupid - Stupid article by Bill Shaikin. Of course Card fans wouldn't boo Albert. That dude came through in the playoffs...unlike Hamilton.

Albert gets genuinely angry when he doesn't come though in the clutch...unlike Mr. Smiley Josh Hamilton.

 

Card Fan don't boo passion...

Angel Fan will boo passive I.D.G.A.S attitudes....

Seriously, look at last week.  Torii had a very positive reception on his return. 

 

It's not _that_ you left, it's _how_ you left, and how you treated people while you were there and when you left.

 

 

Pujols never disrespected St Louis.  He left for a bigger pay day, but when he left he still didn't disrespect them.

 

Torii never disrespected anywhere he's been.  He's a dude with a big heart and passion.  Great guy.  

 

Hamilton leaves scorched earth behind him.  When he left Arlington he took shots at them.  When he left here he took shots at us.  Those who suffer from cranial-rectal inversions usually get whats coming in the end.

I'd love to go to a game in St. Louis. My understanding is they have a great fan base that pays attention to the game, they are not pricks to other teams fans, and they appreciate their players and understand the game. Sounds good to me. Who knows it could be just like the assumption we have of Boston fans based on the ones we see at Angel Stadium.

Remember when Albert first came to Anaheim...and the team attempted to have billboards like this:

Albert said that ONLY Stan Musial was "The Man"...so what happened next?

Albert gets it...St. Louie is a great baseball town...because that's all they got.

 

The Rams are transplants - no NBA - the Blues choke every year - and the only college are nicknamed The Billikens. Who want to root for this?

Seeing those Angels billboards in LA is pretty sad. What a waste of marketing dollars.

Why? Besides the fact that it's a Dodgers town. It came at a time when the Dodgers were under the worst ownership in baseball. Arte knew he wasn't going to over take the Dodgers in LA, but it's entirely possible he could gain a larger fan base than he had at the time.

I have a high school buddy who moved to St. L. during our junior year. He still lives there. We plan to do a Cards game when I can make a trip there. Sounds like a great time.

If Trout leaves after his current contract because some team offers him double the money and double the years of the Angels' best offer, who could blame him for leaving? I think by now Cardinals fans feel the same about Albert..

Oh bot im not sure I want to derail this thread.

But lets just say I disagree. Im under the impression people in LA dont give two craps about the Angels. Ive come across a lot of people who are from LA and grew up there, each and every one say they are a Dodgers fan and hate the Angels.

That be like saying not a single person in OC likes the Dodgers. You aren't going to attract die hard fans, you have to attract fringe fans and turn them into hard core fans.

The Cardinals best offer was 10/210. It was the initial 5 year offer they felt disrespected by and to not give any consideration to the Cardinals final offer.

Depends on what age Trout is.

 

Albert was what? 32? 33? The Cards didn't want him around at that age.

 

Angels let Garret Anderson walk at the right time...same with Vladdy.

 

We booed Benedict Lackey - mostly because he went to Boston - but Weaver took the hometown discount...and that's loyalty.

If the Cardinals had really wanted to keep him, they would have made him a 10 year offer similar to that at least a season before he ever hit free agency and he would still be a Cardinal. They made a business decision based on his age and future productivity. He obviously felt they should have made their decision based on what he had done for the franchise and the city. Making a last second offer that they knew he was not going to accept was a face saving move with the fans, not a serious offer.

After this game, I Just want to remind @McCulloughStar that he looks like a lesbian, and his team sucks. Go Cards. #STLCards

 

Our van (that has a KC sticker) was keyed in the parking garage in STL.

 

Yep, best fans in the sport.
