Mona LaRussa Leads the Monday Ramblin’s…

I like Tony LaRussa. I think overall he does way more good for the STL Cards than he hurts them by micro-managing in spots. However, there is a faction of fans that do believe he’s too tinker prone. Those people might enjoy SI’s Joe Posnanski’s quote over the weekend: If Tony LaRussa is one of baseball’s great overmanaging artists, this is his Mona Lisa.”…

The greatest QB to even lace up a pair of cleats was on the NPR show Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me over the weekend and The Dragon, a Rams season ticket holder since the franchises inception, reports he did a good job on the show. Listen to the 11 minute clip LINK HERE. Also, NPR stands for National Public Radio. You public school kid…

One of the beautiful things about baseball is its allowance for things to just get real freaky. Much like real life, it doesn’t happen often, but it also doesn’t mean that baseball isn’t into it. She’ll never let a team get bailed out by a clock- you’ve got to put in the work to reach a climax…

The ESPN production value of Sunday night’s game was impeccable. The shots of STL landmarks bumpering every commercial breaks made the city look awesome. But the troika of Joe Morgan, Jon Miller and Orel Hershiser has to be addressed. The addition of a third man in the booth causes a couple of problems. 1) The chemistry is forced. You feel like these guys know the broadcast is sliding downhill and they’re gripping for anything. 2) Jon Miller talks to much to have a 3 man booth. He’s not a ‘let the pictures do the talking’ announcer. He talks a lot. So when three guys are battling for air- it’s really non-stop blathering. Good points are lost in the shuffle because you’re tired of hearing someone all the time…

The starting pitchers for the Cardinals in 2010 have been ridiculous. Even the runs they’re giving up, like last night, are taking fluke plays and mini-miracles. If this offense starts scoring some way other than the home run, look the F out…

Yes, I had to watch the end of the epic 20 inning game at a Jennifer Hudson concert. To be completely honest, I saw exactly 0% of her show. And from this review, it looks like I didn’t miss anything. I’ve never seen a poor concert review from the P-D, let alone one for a charity event, but Kevin Johnson made it clear that Hudson was no Dreamgirl Saturday night LINK HERE

Still time to vote in the poll below: Who rocked the Cardinal hat harder- Axl Rose or Lil’ Wayne? LINK HERE
