This article just reinforces what I heard the Cardinals broadcasters saying over the weekend. I wonder what BCB'ers think about this. For me, I can think of no more telling commentary on the sad state of affairs on the North Side of Chicago. I'm sure that if and when the Cubs become competitive again, the rivalry with the Cardinals will heat back up. But, for now, the rivalry is pretty much on the back burner. The Reds are who the Cardinals fans are saving their venom for.
