The Best Fans in Baseball(TM) can get cranky online

From a St. Louis Post-Dispatch online chat between readers and Cardinals GM John Mozeliak today:

I Hate Bill Dewitt!!: Mo,
Please describe what it's like living in your little land of make believe where you honestly believe that Cardinal fans should be excited about this team. If you wouldn't mind, go into details, about how in MO's world people are celebrating are three horrible new lefty relievers, and the signing of our awesome new .213 hitting shortstop.
John Mozeliak: First I rather live in my world then is sunny out today??? No you're right it is 30 something degrees, my girl friend dumped me, and my car won't start.
First, it is not we stink (unless you ask yourself these questions in the mirror) and we make decisions based on scouts, stats, and other information. If we thought Greene was going to hit .213 we would not, I repeat, not make the deal.
Go back to your world and I hope by mid summer you're ready to come out for air.

So if I'm getting this right, the Hatfields don't like the signings, but the McCoys are saying "go to hell"... in "civil" tones, no less?

And if Mozeliak's math is any indication, I'd say it's gonna be a long summer in the Looney Bin in 2009...

I'm a bit confused myself, I live about 90 minutes from the Heart of Cardinal Nation and they generally prefer their middle infielders to be lousy and white so I'm not sure where the problem lies.

2 Ozzie must have been an interesting quandary for them...

3 Oh they love their great black players, but Ray Lankford or Ron Gant...not so much.

NOTE: This is a w i d e generalization.
