Somewhere Bob Gibson is smiling.

It’s only January 20 and the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals are already sniping each other. The war of words started during the annual, usually light-hearted winter team fan fests (the Cubs Convention and Cardinals Caravan).

Of course, the Cubs faithful erupted in cheers. Then the clip hit social media and the Cardinals didn’t think the comment was too funny.

Matt Carpenter replied with a series of fire emojis.

“Yadi is a fiery guy, which is awesome. I love it. I think it’s good for the rivalry. These are going to be some fun games. I’m looking forward to the Cardinals fans coming out and showing up.”

Have you circled May 3 on your calendar? If not, maybe today’s the day to do that.
