Tony L aRussa: A lost week end all around
NOW THAT SKIPPER Tony LaRussa has paid his respects to Glenn Beck's latest love-in and described it as "stirring," have you noticed that his fading St. Louis Cardinals then lost the following two games in a row to the woeful Washington Nationals. Hmmmm....Might the gods have been a tad unimpressed by a baseball manager hobnobbing on Dr. Martin Luther King's historic site with the masses of Religitics? I'm not suggesting that there was actually a connection, mind you. Still, wouldn't Tony have been better off spending the time stirring up his team instead. Even the St. Louis media are saying that the Cardinals appear to be going through the motions these days.
