The Bitter Tears Of The Best Fans In Baseball

In the wake of Matt Holliday's fateful decision to play James Loney's soft liner off his testicles, Cardinals Nation expressed several sentiments unbecoming the best fans in baseball but at least cleared all five stages of grief.

These are culled from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's coverage, Cards Clubhouse, Viva El Birdos and Twitter.

1. DENIAL

Mulliganstew:

I... can not believe that happened

I just can't

glamberson:

asdgkf;ghfd;ljgsf;hghjdgjd

prophetjohn:

mother fuck

glamberson:

Shitsticks!

cloistermaximus:

WHAT THE
FUUUUUCK

Paulspike:

Fuck this shit…. I cannot believe Holliday did not make that catch… MY FREAKING GOD… you send Franklin out there to get two outs… TWO FUCKING OUTS…. ugh… year is over, this is what a crappy september causes…

2. ANGER

Paralaranoid:

MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alxfritz:

Crap! Boobs!

Power Slurve:

Ryan Franklin: Fuck you; Matt Holliday: Fuck you.

rencelas:

Fuck my ass two ways from tuesday

jxmetal1:

eat my dick franklin

glamberson:

I hope it really got him in the nads.

Grrr.

Paralaranoid:

Choke yourself, Matt.

Evilfrog:

FUCK!

YOU SUCK FRANKLIN!!!!

Power Slurve:

FUCK YOU HOLLIDAY!! FUCK YOU!!

king geedorah:

holliday played that

like a swedish girlscout

Holliday road to the AL:

Matty won't lose his focus in the lights on trying to get a fat contract next month. I'm sure he just pissed away $20 mil a year. He looks like he could care less. He dropped a ball a Little Leaguer coulda caught. He was daydreaming of how he would look in pinstripes. He can't wait to get out of STL. Bos/NY can have him!

LSH0905:

Mark it something is not right in this dugout and I suspect Holliday is a dark horse put in play to foal the playoffs for Cards…So much for the big pay day except for the team that put him in the cards dugout. Check the bank accounts of Holliday..something smells fishy - ChiSox remind you of anything???

Still Puking:

There once was a poser named Matt
Who came to town with his bat
But missing that catch
He made us kavetch
And showed he sucks, worth nothing flat.

Don't dare sign this DH, and I mean it both ways– designated hitter, and d#%K HEAD

twhetsel:

I never want to see him again

darkvenom1972:

Holliday i never want to c him again, and now i have to c him in person, GREAT

PujolsFan4Life:

GO AWAY HOLLIDAY, GO AWAY

jimmy ballgame:

I think he choked on sunflower seeds while trying to catch the ball with his stomach.Sickening loss. Adios, Matt.Thanks for the one good month of baseball.

williamfleitch:

Anyone have a screengrab of Holliday popping those sunflower seeds in his mouth seconds after the error? I hope he enjoyed those.

Cards_Champs_47:

To keep the posting clean, screw Holliday. This was all on him. Bottom of the 9th, two outs. You're looking for $18-$20 million a year and I wouldn't give you crap for you now. After your blunder, you have the Audacity to roam out there bagging sunflower seeds. How does a pitcher recover from that kind of error in a playoff game with EVERYTHING on the line? It's not on Franklin. Let Holliday go to the Yankees next year. He's dead to me.

vivaelpujols:

He's just a retard.

Mulliganstew :

I hate Franklin

I can't respect anyone who doesn't like creamsicles

Mulliganstew:

Fuck Franklin

dcfcblues:

what a fucking terrible baseball team

i fucking hate you Ryan Franklin and Matt Holliday

Grizzled Vet:

Thanks Tony

thanks for taking out Wainer you fucking overthinking overmanaging fucking fuckwad fuckhead.

king geedorah:

I would apologize

but I'm not really sorry. Yet, in order to hopefully remain un-banned, I promise after this post to never mention a pl#ne cr@sh on here again.

I would also like to convey that by mentioning a pl#ne cr@sh could potentially occur, thereby placing the Cards automatically in the next round, I was not saying that I wished it would happen; call it an observation. If the Dodgers tonight visit a local watering hole and an escaped Plaxico Burress drops a bazooka down his pant leg and it goes off repeatedly, this could also place the Cards in the playoffs. I will once again reiterate that this is an observation, not a wish.

It is also in no way a death threat, seeing as how I have no psychic abilities that could down a pl@ne. Nor am I God; what I say does not magically occur. Sleep well.

3. BARGAINING

RollBirdsRoll:

At least college football season gives me hope, since the redbirds decided to shit themselves the last three weeks.

VolsnCards5:

At least the colts are 4-0

jd is legend:

I want Brett Wallace back

CodyG:

Refund!!!!

williamfleitch:

On the bright side, maybe this makes Holliday cheaper to sign? Uh ... [aims gun at brain]

4. DEPRESSION

TBender:

Forfeit Game 3

jxmetal1:

kill me

cardfan124:

i fucking quit

Mulliganstew:

I quit

I seriously quit

joker24:

I fucking quit

5. ACCEPTANCE

hr:

see you all later in 2010
