    Keep turning heads across the country, Tony. The tides are turning.

    Down 2 star outfielders and this team now sports the best record in baseball. In the prophetic words of Jose Abreu: God bless Tony LaRussa.

    Tony looking lively in tonight’s postgame! Looks like he’s going to let his guard down some and show his personality to the media more.

    Absolutely, and the part VAFan wrote about TLR admitting his mistakes resonates with me. It shows his relatability and humility, his willingness to adjust in a game of adjustments, and his players will appreciate him making himself a billboard target for fans/media to shield everyone else. He knows how to manage a clubhouse. That’s partly why Tony LaRussa is one of my role models.

    I have been reading your posts and am impressed by your mind for the game. We should get together for a game this summer. I would love to pick your brain.

    Len didn’t know the rule. Jason didn’t know the rule. Frank didn’t know the rule. Ozzie didn’t know the rule. Hall of Famers, World Series tacticians, and the greatest minds in baseball broadcasting didn’t know the rule either. You could split Tony or any of the above 4 people in half, and they’d be smarter than any twitter kook or poster here. But let’s give credit where credit’s due - 95% of the posters here and all the twitter kooks deserve an Oscar for pretending they knew the rule all along just so they could get their “Gotcha!” moment in the 24/7 Salem witch trials they’ve conducted since November. Take your victory and bask in it for the next 48 hours - this is a Super Bowl-esque holiday for many. Tony got rulebook’d today. But when Tony takes over October, it’s game over.

    Alex isn’t a true CF’er. I was hoping for Kenny Lofton. He was a clutch midseason acquisition in deep runs for the Cubs and Indians, and looked pretty good in the Celebrity All-Star game a couple years ago.

    Vintage Brand has a lot of Chief Illiniwek + old Sox stuff. I once bought Chief Illiniwek shirts there and have gotten their internet ads ever since.

    It’s a 15-12 start. You go 15-12 6 times, you end up 90-72. And wins won’t be the only category TLR passes John McGraw in this year - look far right.
