Tony La Russa

I have seen this film, and it is magnificent. Dennis watched the film. Shockingly, he loved it. Remember the goosebumps you had watching the Cards in the World Series when it was going on live? Experience them again, watching highlights of the Cardinals’ 2011 season, culminating with an in-depth look at the World Series, complete [...]

I really thought Mike Matheny would make a great successor to Dave Duncan one day – following the same route Duncan did, from catcher to successful pitching coach. Instead, Matheny is now Duncan’s boss. Following a relatively short search, John Mozeliak found his man. He didn’t have to look far, awarding the job to the [...]

I’m guessing that most of you saw Tony La Russa on The Late Show with David Letterman and David Freese on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night when they aired, but for those looking for a one-stop shop to view both, here you go. Tony and Dave (CBS edited their video, this isn’t [...]

WE’RE BACK At the request of Albert Pujols, The Daily Pujols was suspended during the season – no contract talks. But now we’re back with a vengeance. Not familiar? On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. [...]

Ciao, Tony LaRussa

After 16 years, 1408 regular season victories, and 2 World Series titles with the Cardinals, Tony LaRussa has decided to take his talents to somewhere other than the St. Louis dugout.  Talk about going out in style, too.  The Cardinals rallied from 10 1/2 games back in late August to get into the playoffs on [...]

World Series Game Seven’s are best watched from the edge of a seat. I learned that last night as the Cardinals slowly, systematically – thankfully – secured their eleventh World Championship in franchise history. What a game. What a series. What a season. The Texas Rangers were the perfect, formidable foe for this season’s Fall [...]

“What are you doing here?” Tony La Russa to Lance Lynn, Game 5 It’s been a punch line since Monday night, but viewed in a different light, that line – that question – is really a microcosm of how the Cardinals’ 2011 season has turned out, no? They weren’t supposed to be here. Ten-and-a-half games [...]

Been collecting links (and a few other goodies) all day in the interest of sharing with you loyal three readers… Patrick Rishe writes at Forbes.com that he believes the Cards’ deep run into the playoffs and World Series appearance further cements the chances that Albert Pujols will re-sign with St. Louis. At the Mariners blog [...]

In an effort to keep things positive, to look forward to games still winnable, and – well – to ultimately put the bad taste of last night’s NLCS Game One loss out of our collective mouths, let’s look at some things we can reasonably expect to see tonight and beyond: Tony La Russa will not hesitate [...]

As we all prepare for tonight’s Cards versus Astros and Phillies versus Braves games that may determine the final playoff spot in the National League, I thought it appropriate to bring a little levity to a high-leverage situation. It just so happens that Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has some managerial tendencies that tweak that teams [...]
