Cardinals 6, Padres 2 (Cardinals win the series, 3-1)
(it might taste like Clydesdale piss, but at least it’s free)
REASONS WHY TONY LA RUSSA IS A BASEBALL GENIUS PERSON :
He’s committed to identifiying and ratting out users of performance enhancing drugs. He loves puppies and kitty-cats very, very much.
2) He made sure Chris Carpenter was available for two starts in the NLDS, even if it meant banking on the red-hot Astros to lose two of 3 in Milwaukee.
3) Tony’s ability to spell the name P-U-J-O-L-S on the lineup card is unmatched.
4) If you or I look at Scott Spiezio, we see a man deserving of incarceration if not lethal injection. La Russa sees a key contributor to the Redbird cause.
5) He doesn’t have Steve Kline’s neck to step on anymore!
