Never Let It Be Said That Baseball Players Don't Have A Way With Words

"I'm not seeing a lack of (effort), I'm seeing a pathetic effort. These Cards fans deserve much better. That's just awful. They won't admit it, that they're quitters. If you can't put a better effort out there on the field, take 'em all out, back up the truck, ship 'em all out and get somebody in here that wants to play baseball. … We've got one team here [San Diego] going for the title and we've got our team going for the toilet. They've got poopy in their pants."
-Former St. Louis Cardinal Jack Clark defends the honor of baseball's self-proclaimed "best fans" by going after the current crop of players at his MLB alma mater. (The Cards are currently seven games behind the first-place Cincinnati Reds in the NL Central, and seven games out of the Wild Card lead.) I'd say that the ex-slugger's words were intended to light a fire under the collective asses of the Cards' 2010 roster, but the outcome of that scenario could get kinda messy! [Via]

To quote the Bard, "We have did a not good job appealing to the baseball watchership." Or words to that effect.

I blame the Glenn Beck endorsement.

Ugh, Cardinals fans.

Yeah, Ugh, Royals who stole their last Series.

And Jack Clark? Goddamn yes.

The Glenn Beck thing? Just fucking shoot me now.

FACT: The Phillies did not win their second World Series until AFTER Glenn Beck left WPHT.

Karen, darling, I'm no Royals fan. What the hell is a Cards fan doing in the west burbs, anyways? Go down to Chesterfield or St. Charles or wherever to be with your ilk. YOUR ILK, I SAID.

You know who else was a quitter,

As long as they finish ahead of the Cubs.

At this point the Cards'll finish behind the Montreal Expos and Kansas City Monarchs.
