Cardinals On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated

The cowardice of Twitter users claims another

I had long found it interesting that the two individuals who had been considered the primary candidates for the vaunted title of St. Louis Cardinals “closer of the future” back in 2009 have been among Major League Baseball’s most prominent Twitter users – until now. A trade to Cleveland took Chris Perez out of the Birds on the Bat and into an Indians uniform, but I continue...

Mariano Rivera is the best relief pitcher of all time, and his 20 year run of greatness has mostly been fueled by throwing one pitch.

But, now, over in St. Louis, Rivera has an...
