    Larussa wanting apology from Jocketty and Castellini

    http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseb...b60e51d29.html



    Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, more or less, has put behind him Cincinnati Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman's criticisms of the Cardinals as "whiners" and the "most hated team in baseball." But what nettles him more, he said, is what he hasn't heard from the Cincinnati organization.

    "There are people in that organization, from the top - (Bob) Castellini, Walt (general manager Walt Jocketty), Jerry Walker, to the players who were here - they know how we compete," La Russa said. "If you win, you shut your mouth and enjoy it. When you lose, you tip your cap.

    "The guys who are in the best position (to say anything) are the owner (Castellini) and the general manager. I'm really disappointed they've been so mute - that they didn't say, ‘That's (Brennaman's) opinion. We don't necessarily agree with it.' It really bothers me."
    TLR has sure PUT BEHIND HIM the Marty thing.

    He's really proving them wrong, and showing that he's not a whiner at all.

    And whine about how the baseballs were rubbed up, and smoke from the home-run celebration and blah blah blah.

    But they do agree with it. That's why they haven't said anything, Tony.

    Stir the flame, LaRussa. Stir the flame. Brett Myers is going for Houston tonight. Looking forward to tonight's game. The Cardinals are heavily favored with Jake Westbrook going, but we'll see, as it's in Houston, they get the last bat, and Cardinals reliever have just as much trouble as anyone's at closing out games.

    Hey Tony, you might want to mention the bolded part to your pitching coach, backup catcher, and Chrissy.....and then look in the mirror and tell yourself.

    This guy seriously lives in his own little world.

    TLR is right. Jocketty and Castellini need to control their employees. Marty was way out of line with his disrespectful comments towards the Cardinals.

    LaRussa is fortunate that there isn't a broadcaster like Marty in St. Louis. He would not be able to handle the public criticism.

    Is Marty an *organization* employee, or is he employed by WLW?

    And while LaRussa is waiting, HE can compose his apology to the Reds. For constant complaints by him and his players about the field, the players, and his general rudeness overall.

    Like that's going to happen.

    Can't wait to hear Marty's comments on THIS!

    Boy oh boy, just gotta love them Cardinals, with the fearless leader. Come on Tony, you're just making it too easy on us! Get over it, it's a professional sport where trash-talking is not only expected but encouraged! How old are we??

    No kidding. If you can't take some old-fashioned ribbing, then it's time to retire, or else go put on your ballet shoes and change your sport. Maybe he should watch, "Black Swan".

    Larussa is fortunate he doesn't have to bat against Cueto.
