    79-77

    Tony Larussa's managing style is much loved here on the ORG. Knows his Xs & Os very well. Mixes and matches. Watches pitch counts. etc. Basically the kind of manager the knowlegeble fan wishes he could be.

    Dusty is a players manager. Handles the personalities in the clubhouse well. Tries to create an environment where once the players get on the field they give 100% effort. Weak in Xs & Os. Unloved by most on the ORG although he seems to be getting some begrudging respect recently.

    What is 79-77? Dusty's career W-L record vs Larussa.

    I think LaRussa is a mediocre X's and O's manager. But that kind of stuff is way overblown in its importance.

    Larussa's cover 2 defense will revolutionize the game. He can use smaller, quicker OFers

    and the Cards run the pick and roll better than any team in baseball.

    When did the ORG fall in love with LaRussa?

    I think LaRussa is overrated personally. Dusty too.

    If anything, LaRussa is overrated because he very rarely is challenged for some of the stupid things he does (besides driving drunk)...

    I don't agree with that statement at all.

    I'm not crazy about either of them, but I'm not sure what their record against each other says about their management effectiveness (or lack thereof). Especially when the record is almost dead even.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I don't even get that, but I laughed anyway.

    I believe that RZ is a myth, he drives too fast, eats too much and smells like eggs.

    I don't know that LaRussa is loved here...but if given the choice, I believe that 90%+ would take LaRussa over Dusty. I believe 99.99999999% of the org would take LaRussa with Dusty if Dave Duncan came with him.
