Glaus is no Terry Pendleton. I'd say the Cards are gaining a bigger character problem than they're getting rid of.
Two anonymous players said he was a clubhouse "cancer" in June. I don't want to get into a huge argument because frankly I shouldn't have said I'm so sure he's a bad guy. I just think there was enough smoke with the LaRussa whining and two players calling him out.
He also had major documented problems with Larry Bowa. Maybe he is just a moody guy, I dunno.
Doesn't mean I'm right though.
