Tony La Losa?

I also agree with the person in the other thread that said it looked like someone had replaced the Cards with another team.

Tony La Losa?

I saw read that article too, Bernreuther, but I can't find it now. All of my friends pretty much agree with the assessment: La Russa's a master strategist, but he wigs out in situations like this and it wigs out the players. I think he's had teams in the series something like five times and has won only one? It can't be the players' fault entirely. I also think some of it had to do with the position the players found themselves in outside of the game itself: if you lose, you lose and if you win you lose because the rest of the world's rooting for the Sox. I don't know if I would've been able to deal with that and the normal pressure associated with playing in the WS.

World Series Game 4

The win against the Yankees was historic, amazing, wonderful. This win was a rout. St. Louis didn't deserve to have history made in their stadium. That was totally uncalled for. Even though I'm a Cards fan, I'm happy for Boston (still wondering what happened to my team the last four games, but still happy). There is such as thing as being a good winner -- which most of the posters here are, but that one stuck in my craw.

Get Your Series On!

Getting into this kids head in game one should ruin him for the series. I dunno. He did really well in Game 6 of the NLCS after his meltdown in Game 4.

Better late than never.

I love me some Pujols, but Tony Womack has taken my respect for him to a new level. That guy is a trooper.

Could it be any worse than how the other crew called the Cards/Astros games? If I heard them say Clemens was "47 years young" one more time I was going to vomit. And what was with all those loving shots of Beltran hitting home runs without giving Pujols equal time?
