St. Louis Cardinals “Nation” of loyal fans is AWESOME BABY!  That 40,000+ of us will turn out eighty-one times a year is incredibly cool. HUZZA to one and all wherever you may be all up and down The Big River.

To St. Louis Cardinals fans, it doesn’t matter… That faithful 40,000 are there on a hypothetical Tuesday “school night” to see our Cards play, let’s say, the woeful Padres; 39,999 can’t name a single Padre but there they are. Tony Gwynn doesn’t count. Tony died in 2014.

OK, enough with the plaudits. Every fan base in every sport has all the stereotypes that confirm and/or refute Charles Darwin’s theory of human evolution. Yes, there ARE St. Louis Cardinals fans that might cause Darwin to apologize to monkeys for implying any connection whatsoever..

“That faction” of whiners, second-guessers, and constipated Mozeliak wannabees insist upon exercising every fan’s inherent right to whine and second-guess each and every move that Mozeliak and Matheny make/don’t make.

"That old adage:“If a tree falls in the deep woods, and no one hears it; does it make a sound?” (“falling trees” = Cardinals fans with opinions)."

That marvelous toy – the Internet – gives every “falling tree” Cardinals fan a high-volume megaphone to broadcast his opinion. Especially if he goes ALLCAPS.

I fall into that category except my sounds are incredibly insightful and therefore a boon to mankind… ???

A lot of falling trees are making discordant sounds about the St. Louis Cardinals “latest FAILURE” to sign Luis Robert a/k/a “the next Sure Big Thing” in the international player market.

NOTE:  It is Robert… NOT Roberts.  That will be on the final exam.

More from St Louis Cardinals News

Luis Robert is from Cuba. He recently chose Barack Obama’s old neighborhood – South Chicago – over the privilege of playing eight-one games each year “in the shadow of the arch.” Is he NUTZ? There was also the matter of a bazillion dollars anted up by the Chicago White Sox.

TeamDeWitt offered slightly less than a bazillion, PROVING to those aforementioned second-guessers that TeamDeWitt is not committed to having world-class baseball in Busch Stadium. Huh?

Growing up in Castro’s Cuba Luis probably doesn’t know about Ted Drewes’ concretes. His loss.

BobLee, is it the same faction that was so vocal when Albert Pujols moved to Anaheim, Jason Heyward to Chicago’s North Side, and David Price chose Fenway? Pretty much.

ASIDE: There are over twenty-six different ways to spell Jason Heyward? This one is correct. Unlike “Johnny/Jhonny” which we learned from Mother Peralta has at least two ways.

I have no aspirations for Mozeliak’s job or Manager Mike’s. I’m content to stay up until 2 AM EDT Wednesday watching Jonathan Broxton do what Jonathan Broxton often does: send me to bed muttering “aww crap.” Mike Leake made me a happy fan again.

Next: Fix the bullpen, please

So long as TeamDeWitt doesn’t screw around with “the birds on the bat” I won’t take severe umbrage. Dare to do that and this “falling tree” is going to be heard; You betcha.
