St. Louis Cardinals loyalists like to refer to themselves as the “best fans in baseball” and that might be true…as long as you don’t play badly for them, beat them, choose to play elsewhere or do anything whatsoever to upset them.
When word came down that the Cardinals had a deal set to acquire Giancarlo Stanton until he invoked his no-trade clause to block the trade, Cards fans went ballistic on Twitter.
Here’s a sampling:
I vote we beat the f out of him. Only beating their brains out will suffice.

@Giancarlo818 cards fans don’t want you anyway. I hope the team you go to becomes a yearly loser.

I’m glad the cards didn’t get you. History shows when players get money like you they never live up to it. Good luck to you and I hope you don’t become the highest paid player on the DL all the time.

Choosing other cities over the cardinals. This guy could have owned a city. He is not smart enough to play in STL

@Giancarlo818 nice to know you are “entitled” and want a championship given to you. Have fun being an entitled littler girl

Boy that last one has some serious irony attached to it huh? Considering it’s coming from a city that still reveres Mark McGwire.
Well done Cardinals fans, never stop being you.
