In case TLR and the Cardinals are running out of things to complain about, here are a few suggestions throughout the NL:
Florida - constant threat of hurricanes in latter half of summer; signs in English and Spanish; south Fla. mosquitoes
Atlanta - insensitive Native American mascot
Philadelphia - Italian mob presence in south Philly
New York Mets - Citi Field too far from Manhatten hotels
Washington - constant threat of terrorism in nation's capital
Chicago - locker rooms in Wrigley too small; not enough parking for visiting Cards fans; too many people not paying attention to game
Cincinnati - balls too slick, mound too short, fences too close, fireworks too loud, seats too red, too hard to spell
Milwaukee - Sausage race offensive to vegetarians
Houston - President Bush and Barbara in first row offensive to Democrats
Pittsburgh - Iron City beer offensive to beer drinkers
Los Angeles - Constant smog in eyes and throat makes Cincy fireworks smoke seem quaint; dangerous neighborhood
San Diego - Fences too far; proximity to Mexican border violence
San Francisco - Earthquake prone; Bonds robbed McGwire of single-season HR record
Colorado - mound too high; bullpens too pretty; hard to breath at elevation; heavy turbulence taking off/landing at DIA

I can't believe I'm just now getting around to seeing the full clip of LaRussa's interview from last night, but that was tremendously satisfying in a schadenfreude sort of way. It couldn't have happened to a nicer giant self-deluded/self-contradicting weenis.
It kinda felt like the final scene of "A Few Good Men." Except I felt worse for Jack after he was fed enough rope to hang himself than I did for Tony. And there was no Kevin Bacon to quietly lead LaRussa away in shame....
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
5 game suspension for Molina
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
You know, it would do Cardinal nation well if you put together an AL list of complaints as well. After all this is the interleague era and there's got to be a whole list of things they do in the junior circuit that irk TLR, Hrabosky and Chris Carpentar's kid.

Is this the same thinking, that has been proven wrong, that players are just falling all over themselves and taking lesser contracts to play in "baseball city?" Managers too, huh?
