“It’s just bad weather more than anything,” Cardinals closer Jason Isringhausen said. “It’s cold out. Kids have school tomorrow. You know, that’s the way I look at it.”
Well, yeah. The Cardinals have paid Isringhausen about $50 million in his seven seasons here. The least he can do is give them good excuses.
I, for one, refuse to believe the Best Fans in Baseball™ would have been dissuaded by bad weather or kids having to school. It's not that the fans have gotten smaller in numbers, it's just that the stadium got bigger suddenly.
