What's Tony La Russa thinking?
The genius manager blames the dugout phones and crowd noise for last nights blunder. I wonder what really happened. He has been a major league manager for thirty-three years now. I'm sure he's managed in louder places over the years, but this is the first time he's had issues with crowd noise interfering with decision making? Why doesn't he just admit he made a bad decision? I respect him for not throwing Derek Lilliquist under the bus. Lilliquist had a difficult time hearing the instructions. I will have to watch the game, but I read La Russa's reactions to the miscommunication was comical. I will write more later, enjoy the day!
