    Re: LaRussa whines about balls and strikes

    The thing with LaRussa is, he complains about everything.

    If you pick your battles correctly, people tend to believe you a little bit more when you have something to say. But when you're known to be a whiner like TLR, this is the general reaction.

    Tony is merely working on the strike zone for Carpenter and Garcia the next two games. Bobby Cox was the master of it with Glavine and Maddux.

    No team is immune to rotten calls. We Reds fans should all know that by now.
