Is the Pressure Getting To LaRussa?
Tony LaRussa (aka The Delicate Genius) recently said that the Cardinal fans’ treatment of Chris Duncan “makes me want to vomit. And you can quote me on that.”
LaRussa ripping the creepy Cardinal fandom? I love it!
Then he had a little spat with Al Hrabosky, Cards color man and former reliever.
All this led Aaron Hooks from Cardinals Diaspora and Inside STL to ask “What’s Up with Tony?”
“But in the span of two weeks, LaRussa, already a polarizing figure in St. Louis, has seemingly gone out of his way to piss off just about everyone that cares about this team. Why?”
Read the story for the 3 reasons Hooks thinks LaRussa might be losing it a bit. It might not mean anything, but it sure is fun to read. And it put a smile on my face.
Maybe TLR is feeling the pressure to win. He has the best starter and best hitter going for him. They lead the central. People are starting to expect that the Cardinals will win the division, whether it is fair or not. I’m sure the fans think they should.
