Jack Clark is not impressed with the Cardinals’ lack of effort, dirty underpants

Wow. We are saying some epic rants in the sports world this week.

First, Mike Singletary went off on a reporter who dared to ask him a question that everyone was interested in hearing the coach answer.

Then, former St. Louis Cardinals player and current team analyst Jack Clark decided that the “Pu” in Pujols is far from the only poo in the St. Louis Cardinals locker room.

Just listen:

Here is a transcript, sent to me by our co-editor AJ Kaufman who tracked the scent of this putrid story all the way to STLToday.com.

“I’m really tired of watching the effort, that’s for sure,” Clark said. “I’m not seeing a lack of (effort) I’m seeing a pathetic effort. These Cards fans deserve much better. That’s just awful. They won’t admit it, that they’re quitters. If you can’t put a better effort out there on the field, take ’em all out, back up the truck, ship ’em all out and get somebody in here that wants to play baseball.”

“We’ve got one team here (San Diego) going for the title and we’ve got our team going for the toilet,” he said. “They’ve got poopy in their pants,” and he went on to make another off-color remark about what’s “in their britches.”

If Clark would actually look at the picture in that STLToday article, he’d see that the problem is not a reluctance for the Cardinals to deposit their #2s in the correct place outside of their gamewear. Rather, it’s the fact that Tony LaRussa is distracted by getting an eye test in the dugout. That’s just poor timing by his optometrist.

But I digress.

Things have gone from bad to worse in St. Louis as a disappointing 2010 season winds to a close. I just can’t help but wonder what guys like Chris Crapenter and Colby Crapsmus think when they hear stuff like this from Jack Clark.

Probably something along the lines of, “Yeah, we may have some doody in our unis, but at least we don’t look like a giant stuffed talking carrot.”
