Bio not provided
I can't agree with you more, and that's from a lifelong Cardinals fan. It's smart baseball and team-building, but it's not unique to the Cardinals and never was. And though it rankles me to have to admit a CUBS fan is right, McClellan is pretty spot-on with his criticism.
I don't like his comments about the best fans in baseball. Yes, that's an entirely subjective judgment, but Cardinals fans have always been smart, knowledgeable, fun, and most of the time (no, NOT ALWAYS) respectful of their fellow fans. If we want to claim the Best Fans in Baseball title, well, we have to back it up. But arguing about whether we are or not is like a sibling fight that devolves into "No you ain't!" "Yes I am!" It's a pointless endeavor.
I get the Peralta nonsense, I really do, but I still don't care. I enjoy baseball, and his link to Biogenesis isn't going to lessen my enjoyment of the game.
And the Carlos Martinez situation is overblown. He's a young guy who happens to like naked women, and who probably didn't realize his favorites are visible to EVERYONE (hey, I'm much older than he is, and I didn't think about that when I started using Twitter either...). He was talked to about it, got the situation resolved, and now we move on. IT'S A NON-ISSUE, WAS FROM THE START, AND NEEDS TO BE DROPPED.
I think it's time for the Cardinal Way story line to be put to bed also. It didn't win a World Series last year, and it got us whupped for the second time by the Red Sox. Let's just give the organization credit for being well-run and call it good.

"Well, I'll tell you what, you talk about getting a bit of your own medicine...Kronwall has made a living making big hits."
Nothing wrong with this. It's straight-up analysis of the hit, and it came almost immediately after the hit was made by McLeod not after he was laying on the ice. It wasn't malicious or mean-spirited in any way.

And Lochte is still a better, more accomplished individual than either one of those two.
Sometimes I think Lochte KNOWS he is being trolled and plays up his stereotype just to do it.

What I find most disappointing is I've always heard Costas bring a certain amount of levity to just about any conversation, but over the last three years or so he's really become rather curmudgeonly and dour. It's really a shame that, after so many appearances on the Dan Patrick show, he has lost the underlying sense of humor that used to trademark their conversations. His last appearance on Mike and Mike in the Morning was much the same way, even with Greeny fawning over Costas as he is wont to do.
I don't begrudge Costas the chance to talk about these topics, nor do I think he needs to stop, but I do think it is somewhat sad that he's almost lost his sense of humor completely.
