Poor Tony LaRussa. Just look how mean the news media is being to him and his team:
(HT Cincinnati Reds Blog)
I mean, how unfair: to ask how the team that contains Albert Pujols, a guy many people still think is the best player in baseball despite the evidence of Joey Votto, in his contract year, has scored only 15 runs in 6 games and sports a 2-4 record. Just because it’s the most important question facing this team doesn’t give them any right to actually ask it. Don’t people have any respect?
As of this writing, LaRussa had not shared his opinion of what the media should be asking, but when he does, it’s sure to revolutionize baseball reporting as we know it. But until then, I recommend questions such as:
- Let’s talk about Chris Carpenter’s six Ks
- Tell us about the Lance Berkman RBI and how run production like that complements his superior ability in right field.
- Where did you get those awesome sunglasses?
Really, it’s the least guys who’s won 5 Pennants and 2 World Series titles in just 33 years can demand of the objective media.
