Let me say that I am a life long Cardinal fan. I came across your website during this years playoffs.

First, I want to congratulate all of you on a great baseball season. Your team plays hard and plays the game the way it should be played with hustle and great play.

Second, I want to say what a great site you have here. The discussions are informative and you respect each others opinions. Bravo !!

Third, We would love to trade for your CF and are prepared to offer the third string catcher on our AA team. Seriously, he is a great ball player and from what we hear, a great individual. Congrats on the MVP.

I look forward to continuing discussions and a great rivalry.

Wow. Respect from a Cardinals fan.

Well, let me welcome you to the UPPMB. We're a good crew, generally, and some of us (not me) know a lot about baseball. We also tend to have thin skin given that (now-defunct) losing streak. But, despite the excruciating loss to the Cards in the divisional series, I believe there's more rancor on this board toward the Reds and Brewers.

Personally, I'm a huge Yadier Molina fan. The guy is simply a great baseball player and leader. I'm sure the Pirates would be willing to trade a couple of minor-league catchers and Travis Snider if your boys would be willing to send him over to Pittsburgh...

Welcome! It's always fun to have fans from other teams on your board. That is, if they're not trolling.

I like and respect the Cards. Always have. My all-time favorite player is none other than Stan the Man. I never saw him play, I'm not that old, but you gotta love it when the all-time greats are great people.

As long as you dislike the Reds, we will have no trouble getting along :D

Welcome.

A friendly board rivalry could prove fun.

Also, much respect to your team; they define "professional franchise".

1 must realize that there has been a long and heated rivalry, at least from the Bucs end of it, since the LaRussa days. Much of this is the result of hit batters, intimidation, etc. that took place during that time. Personally, I think Tony LaRussa is one of the great managers of all time and he was a pioneer in using computers and the stats that they can spew out. I just don't think the rivalry is perceived in St. Louis the same as it is in Pittsburgh…JMHO... 8-) 8-)

I agree with you. The club that we view as our "hated rivals" is the Cubs. It doesn't make sense, but for some reason it goes back years. We have had heated races in the last several years with the Reds and Brewers and dislike the Reds because of the fight a year or two ago. Basically our view of the Pirates is one of respect. Most Cardinal fans felt that if we could not go to the Series, we hoped for the Pirates, We like the way you play the game.
Of course all of that is subject to change. This year one of your MVP voters put Yadi Molina 9th on his list and that did not sit well, especially when we all viewed your CF as a runaway winner. About 85 days til pitchers and catchers report. Gonna be a great year for both teams.

Welcome to our nuthouse. By the way, it's considered good form to call the Pirates owners cheap in your first post, which you neglected to do... :)

Short of that, I look forward to many years of intense pitching matchups in our dusty little division. Between the Bucs, the Cards, and the Reds, the pitching is going to be spectacular.
