Cardinals' fans are a proud lot, especially when it comes to the oft-repeated claim that they're "the best fans in baseball." Apparently that sort of self esteem rubs some people the wrong way.

The Twitter feed Baseball's Best Fans is a storehouse of ugliness, name calling and schadenfreude, all delivered by fans of the St. Louis Cardinals. It's an eye-opener, to say the least (sorry, Tony).

I mean, what do you do with this?

That's uncalled for, sir. This one's not much better though.

David Freese was instrumental in last fall's World Series victory -- is this gratitude? At least it's all spelled properly, though. Not all the best fans are capable of that much.

Yes, "#trader," indeed. Albert Pujols has a nice sideline going as a freelance stockbroker. This next one gets a little blue.
