La Russa stays with Cards; Yankee fans rejoice everywhere by red

From mlb.com:

ST. LOUIS — Tony La Russa agreed to a two-year contract with the Cardinals on Monday and will return as the team’s manager for a 13th season. The deal was announced by the club and La Russa during a press conference at Busch Stadium.

Thank god that’s over with. La Russa is not only a lackluster strategic manager, I can defenitely see some personality conflicts with some of the guys in the Yankee clubhouse. Now it’s probably narrowed down to Mattingly, Girardi, and Valentine. For me, all three of them would do, though I think I’d prefer Mattingly and Valentine a bit more than Girardi. Girardi just seems to manage young and/or bullpen arms the way Joe Torre did a bit too much. Still, anything for a breath of fresh air.

And yet, like all victories, this one comes with a hint of sadness – my condolences to Cardinals fans. I often wonder if La Russa was drunk during some of the games too. You know it’s bad when you’ve got So Taguchi batting cleanup. (Though incidentally having the pitcher batting 8th was actually a good idea, but not for the reasons La Russa thinks. It was a bad idea because the reason he batted the pitchers eighth was actually sort of dumb and didn’t make sense, but it technically is a good idea, because it worked for an entirely separate reason than the one he thought. If that makes any sense.)

And day now / Any day now / A press statement announcing the new manager for the Yankees shall be released…

In other news: World Series, Sox vs. Rox.

God, I hate the Red Sox. Sorry, I just do. Actually, I take that back, I’m not apologizing: I just do, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Hey, that’s what a good rivalry does to you. 🙂

By the way, the “Any day now” lyrics are a reference to The Band, some people might be wondering.
