Come on, people are going to hit Sydney Crosby. It does not matter if he is "the face of the league" in fact that probably puts a bigger target on his back. You don't think teams get pumped up when they play LeBron James?
And stop ripping the former SEC player. Luck is overhyped and would not do as well if he played SEC defenses a handful of times a year.
As for the Cardinals, I get the hispanic element, but if they can get Terry Francona they have to take that chance, Pujols leaving or not.
