This helps the Reds.
Hall of Famer.
Disgusted me as a fan of a rival, but as much as I dislike(d) him, dude knew how to get a whole lot outta his players.
HOF'er, but doesn't mean I have to like him ;)
If I were in his shoes I would retire, too. It will be impossible to top the run his team made the past several months. The man is the definition of a Hall of Fame manager. I won't miss him but I will always appreciate what he accomplished.
I wonder how this effects Pujols.
And most Cardinal fans I know are celebrating this, almost as much as they are celebrating their Championship.
Wonder what, if anything, this will mean for Pujols?
Familiarity breeds contempt, I'm sure. Cards fans will be emptying the seats soon enough, once the winning slows down. Look at August, their crowds were dwindling even then. "Best fans in baseball."
Color me suprised.
Looking forward to the shorter games (timewise) against the Cards.
Duncan is almost certain to leave then too, right? Now with La Russa gone and his wife still dealing with her health issues.
