The original Rally Squirrel may have been fried and eaten moved to a wildlife center in the days since the St. Louis Cardinals clinched the NLDS in Philadelphia and began the NLCS up in Milwaukee.
But as the Cards return to Busch Stadium for tonight's game 3, you can be certain that the surest sign that St. Louisians are insane cute cult hero will be everywhere in spirit. From...
What do you get when you combine Corey Hart’s and Rickie Week’s last name? WART. Yes WART. Appropriate for what these two ******* ass bags have been to the Brewers’ playoff lineup. A big, festering WART. Rickie Wart is hitting a blistering (what warts do) .130 this post season with one damn RBI in the [...]
The increasingly grim nature of Alex Rodriguez's contract is going to cost baseball's biggest star quite a bit of money.
