The New York Yankees just finished a three game series in St. Louis against the Cardinals. The Yankees took two of the three games and thus had a successful series. The two fan bases are fun to compare. You cannot deny that the Cardinals have something special in St. Louis. The sea of red is everywhere and no city supports their team better. But they also, with a few rational exceptions, do not like their team questioned in any way. Yankee fans, on the other hand, love to argue and usually do so against each other!
Last night on Twitter was a typical example. I wasn’t picking on the Cardinals, which is the funny thing. It was actually a compliment to the Yankees for the series. I tweeted:
Yankees faced the talented Wacha, Lynn & Miller, had pitchers hitting and only struck out 11 times in 118 PAs in the series. 9.8%.

In my mind, that is not saying anything bad against the Cardinals.…
