You know, I'm just gonna go ahead and put this out there. I think the whole LaRussa/Duncan show has gotten kinda stale.......it's run it's course in old St. Louis. You can see the frustration now that there is a legitimate contender to compete with them and beat them year in and year out in the NL Central. LaRussa doesn't seem to be the same "genius" manager that he has always been praised as being now that he doesn't have Walt Jocketty feeding him talent to work with. Same goes for Duncan. I believe we are seeing the end of an era......time for the LaRussa/Duncan show to shuffle off to another town for a few years. I think this time next year you'll see a whole new staff running the show in old St. Louis.
