Second Place Leads Monday Ramblin’s…

Tastes like second place…

The apathy on the STLCards is appalling. I get the distinct feeling that this team feels it is entitled to a playoff berth. Well, boys, I hate to be the harbinger of bad news- but better teams than yours have not made the playoffs. It’s time to start acting like you give a shit and a half, since two seem to be far too ambitious…

Is there a scientific explanation on how weather patterns can just come to St. Louis and stick around for weeks on end, whereas they seem to move fairly quickly through other parts of the nation and/or world? Except for the good weather. That seems to pass quickly…

ESPN 101.1 is reporting that Tony LaRussa has indicated Brendan Ryan’s playing time will be “reduced significantly” when Flip Lopez is activated off the DL this week.  Mr. Ryan seems like a good dude, but second place clubs can’t have 2 automatic outs every time the line-up turns over. He’s had a rough start to 2010 and I think it’s time for some tough talk: We probably expected too much from a role player/utility IF and it was a mistake. Expect an injury to pop up soon to get him to AAA for ‘rehab’ once his stint on the DL expires…

The rooftop bar at Joe Bucks downtown is now open. It’s going to take me a long time to process the image of Dan Dierdorf silently mouthing the lyrics to Hypnotize…

McKernan FTW! “I used to like ‘Chicken Fried’ by Zac Brown Band.  Now I just think of runners left on base in scoring position.” Well played…

I like that Cincinatti could become a fun little rivalry for the Cardinals. But spare me the BS about the city’s passion for baseball. If you can’t sell out a game with first place on the line on a weekend after April- you’re not that into it. And it wasn’t even close. Swaths of empty seats in the Great American Ballpark…

Congratulations to Ryan & Lisa Jacobs who got married this weekend. Two of the biggest Cardinal fans I know. I don’t know what exactly you were trying to say about the bridesmaids when you played THIS, but I’m sure it was not comparing them to horses. Right?…

Why does everything that tastes so good, turn out to be really bad for you? That’s the worst…

Quit with the criminal investigations, quit with the factory worker suicides, quit it all and just give me the opportunity to buy this damn iPhone4. We want it and we want it ASAP. Reading about it every single day in the news is making us all mad…

The re-naming of Mark McGwire highway is a waste of time in the highest order. If the MO legislature spent one second on this, anyone that voted for it should be impeached and then pantsed.  Fucking Joe Blow can’t get a job and you’re worried about 4 signs on a shit highway? You wonder why you’re considered the lowest form of humanity. This is why…
