View Full Version : Things Tony LaRussa Complains About (or eventually will)

08-03-2011, 08:55 PM
Since it looks like the 2011 post-season ship has most likely sailed for our Redlegs, let's have some fun at the expense of Redszone's favorite manager, Tony LaRussa.

We all know that "LaGenius" loves complaining. He is to complaining what Chuck Norris is to being awesome. So, I thought we could come up with some humorous items on TLR's complaint list. Feel free to keep numbering them as we work our way through his list.

I'll start things off....

1. Abner Doubleday, for not consulting him when documenting the rules of baseball.
2. Chris Carpenter's son, for requiring so many explanations.
3. The 7th inning stretch, for ruining his pitcher's rhythm.

5. Curt Flood, for pioneering free agency and costing him Albert Pujols.

6. Wine, for getting him drunk and making him sleepy. (http://www.carkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/car-driving/6805/Baseball-mgr-Tony-La-Russa-DUI-asleep-at-the-wheel)
