It all started so innocently. Or, as innocent as intense sartorial mocking can be.
A fan site for the Cardinals posted a great shirt idea:
Mike Leake STOLE THIS SHIRT FOR ME.
The response came quickly, a surgical strike:
Tony LaRussa WALKED THE LINE AND FAILED.
Then the Cardinals site dropped a T-Shirt bomb of snark on their opponents, including the genius above. With the balance now obviously shifted in the battle, perhaps the underdogs need a little help?
Incredibly important note: I am not taking sides in this inevitably long and drawn out battle. I’m just making gentle suggestions from afar. Gentle. Suggestions.
