Why are Tony La Russa's Cardinals suddenly again paling in comparison to the NL Central's top dogs late in the season?
Maybe unreported health problems are to blame. La Russa reportedly had shingles this season and has been looking paler since last year. I hope he's all right. Privacy is a touchy thing for a public figure.
TLR's health could be the reason the Cards continue to fold late in campaigns. Maybe it's best for La Russa to walk away in silence and deal with the matter with his doctors, family and famous friends.
Whatever the reason, it's quite embarrassing. The fact is La Russa has had many embarrassing moments as manager of the Cardinals.
These are the 10 most memorable. Roll the slides, dear readers, if you dare.
