For Being Baseball's Best Fans, We Sure Are Hateful

The Twitter feed Baseball's Best Fans
is a storehouse of ugliness, name calling and schadenfreude, all delivered by fans of the St. Louis Cardinals. It's an eye-opener, to say the least (sorry, Tony).
I mean, what do you do with this?
That's uncalled for, sir. This one's not much better though.
David Freese was instrumental in last fall's World Series victory -- is this gratitude? At least it's all spelled properly, though. Not all the best fans are capable of that much.
Yes, "#trader," indeed. Albert Pujols has a nice sideline going as a freelance stockbroker. This next one gets a little blue.
Bob Costas wept.
Cardinals' fans are a proud lot, especially when it comes to the oft-repeated claim that they're "the best fans in baseball." Apparently that sort of self esteem rubs some people the wrong way.
