A Resounding “Yes” to Smoke Signals

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.
