Q. I think this was brought up earlier, but is there a problem when something like that can happen? Is there a better way to do it?
La Russa: Yeah, smoke signals from the dugout.
Quotes taken from Big League Stew on Yahoo.
Hey, it isn’t exactly aesthetically pleasing but I also don’t think anyone would mistake it for Lynn, right? I am now, at last, convinced that La Russa is indeed the managerial genius everyone seems to think he is. Smoke signals are just what the Cardinals need. And just the reason they are down 3-2 in the World Series. If they instated smoke signals tomorrow, this series would be theirs.
But I hope they don’t. Because the Rangers are so close I can smell it- I mean, I am closer to Texas here in Los Angeles- and it smells like blueberry muffins with coarse sugar on top and caprese pasta. As Jon Miller would say, “mmm-mmm!”. I am so excited I can barely believe it.
p.s. That presser with Theo Esptein today was gold. I just cannot get over the way General Managers say “organization”, with those fabulous, drawn-out vowels. Love it to death.
