Humor:
Fake Mike Shannon: @FakeMikeShannon. While it's not updated as often as we'd like, this Twitter account is likely the funniest of the bunch.

I'm going to need at least two ice cold, frosty Budweisers after this one. heh heh heh #stlcardsless than a minute ago via web


Fans:
Frequent user and a source of humor, thankfully poking fun at the overplayed radio commercials during Cardinals broadcasts. Rachel: @PujolsMolinaFan
 
Marty Prather
: @STLCardsSignGuy. You enjoy or loathe is punnery during games, now you can experience it online while you're watching the game at home.

If I was at the game, my new sign would have Carpenter standing by an oven with mitts on, saying "Ding! The Nationals Are DUNN!" #SignGuyless than a minute ago via web


Kirk Pound: @diehardcardsfan. If for no other reason than to see photos of a guy with a painted-on shirt.

Players and Staff
Outfielder Matt Holliday: @mattholliday7. He hasn't updated since the beginning of the season (maybe it was the flack he got for admitting he liked Creed), but it's worth a follow.

Loading the car tonight to ship down to florida for spring training. 1st spring in fl. Hard to believe it's already that time againless than a minute ago via Twitterrific


Skipper Tony La Russa: @tonylarussa. Even though Tony tried to sue Twitter on the grounds that someone used his name and set up a fake account, he's now taken to the medium, sort of. Again, no tweets since the beginning of the season. Plus, they're just kind of confusing.
