I’ve seen a hell of a lot of jaw-dropping tweets today, but this one from the St. Louis Cardinals takes the cake:
La Russa has been selected by commish Bud Selig to serve on a panel to discuss ways to improve the game.
Biggest problem facing the game today? They’re too long. Biggest reason they’re too long? Too many pitching changes. Reason there are so many pitching changes? Tony La Russa invented the concept of hyper-spastic bullpen specialization back in the late 80s, and now no manager thinks he can break spring training with a pen under 13 men strong and no manager can get through a seventh inning without using five if them.
Physician, heal thyself.
