  • TLR hacked off @ media re: McGwire; Marquis to get start Sat

    QUOTE
    La Russa -- who wasn't pleased with some unflattering McGwire columns in the Post-Dispatch the last couple of days (written by Miklasz and then Burwell) -- got steamed today. An ESPN reporter asked a rather vanilla question about how La Russa thought McGwire would be received by fans tonite at Busch.

    La Russa said, "I'll see you all later. That question shouldn't even be asked." Walking away, La Russa said, "we've had a positive, great season, a great 40 years."

    Then in the tunnel, heading toward the field, La Russa took his fungo bat and slammed the wall with it -- twice -- breaking it.

    OK, then....

    Marquis and not Suppan will start vs. Reds tomorrow... this is significant because it tells us that if the Cardinals are playing S. Diego in the first round, Marquis will get the start in Game 4. And not Suppan. La Russa wouldn't go that far. He said he's starting Marquis because he's pitched well against the Reds and that gives the Cardinals a better chance to win.

    That's the party line.

    But La Russa and Duncan are creatures of routine and he wouldn't lock Marquis into a start tomorrow unless he planned (tentatively) to bring him back for a start in the NLDS. The Padres' scout here at Busch (a fellow by the name of Ted Simmons) fully expects to see Marquis pitch against the Padres in Game 4 (after Morris works Game 3).

    Lineups:

    Eck 6
    Edm 8
    AP 3
    Sand 7
    Walk 9
    Grudz 4
    Molina 2
    Nunez 5
    Mulder

    Freel 7
    F Lopez 6
    Dunn 3
    Aurilia 4
    La Rue 2
    Kearns 9
    Encarnarcion 5
    Demorfia 8
    Keisler 1

    enjoy the game...

        I swear, if Marquis is thrown in the San Diego series instead of Suppan...
        let's just hope it doesn't happen.

                    Well then boo the owners, Jocketty, Larussa, and yourselves, because all of you guys endorsed that behavior. MLB was about to become as irrelevant as the NHL, if the powers that be didn't decide that we needed a super special event to refocus the fans back to the game.

                              Yes, he most likely cheated, but he also brought back baseball in a way nobody could. He also gave all of that money back to the Cardinals that he could have kept for himself. I don't see a reason to boo if you're a Cardinals fan. I don't necessarily see a reason to cheer off your ass either.
