2012-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your favorite baseball memory?
(Ida from Pasadena, CA)
Thanks for your questions Ida, I live in the same town! Easily my greatest baseball memory is August 4, 1985, when Tom Seaver won his 300th game at a sold-out Yankee Stadium. It was Tom's first attempt at winning 300, and it could not have been scripted any better. I was traveling with the club during that period of my career, and had developed a great relationship with Seaver, so it meant even more to me. We got off the bus and a fan screamed out, "Hey Seaver, I hope you break your arm out there today" and Tom was right next to me. It broke the ice for him, as he let out his signature laugh and yelled back "Thanks for all your support." It was Old Timer's Day at Yankee Stadium and all the great Yankees were in attendance like DiMaggio. New York baseball fans, who loved him during all those years with the Mets, were incredibly supportive throughout the game, and the old Stadium was electric due to his quest and the great Yankee oldtimers in pre-game. Pitching coach Dave Duncan came out to the mound in the later innings, and was greeted with boos from the crowd, but Tony La Russa was never going to take out Seaver unless he had to, it was his game to lose. Tom threw a complete game at age 40, which was amazing in itself, and it was such a perfect moment. We had a closed clubhouse afterwards for a few minutes after the game as Tom composed himself, and his class came out as he had a game-used baseball from #300 for every member of the traveling party. The players had such immense respect for him as he was such a great mind and had such an amazing career. I'll likely never be able to duplicate that afternoon. (Dan Evans)
2012-08-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for your time, Dan! What is your favorite moment with the White Sox or a story you enjoy the most?
(Justin from Chicago)
Justin from Chicago...my favorite White Sox moment was the night we clinched the American League West Division title in 1983. The city had not had post-season baseball since 1959, and I grew up on the city's North Side and knew what it meant to the town. It was an exciting club that caught fire in the second half, and scored a then team-record 800 runs after we altered the park's dimensions. There was jubilation that night, and the respect for Roland Hemond being carried thru the clubhouse by his players is something I will never forget. I was exceptionally lucky to work with such a great bunch of people in my very early years there: among them Tony La Russa, Roland Hemond, Jerry Reinsdorf, Charley Lau, Dave Dombrowski, Bill Smith, Dave Duncan, George Bradley, Bob Fontaine, John Boles, Eddie Brinkman, and Jack Gould. It was an absolute great place to work and I could not wait to get to the ball park every day. (Dan Evans)
2011-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think that Pujols is more likely to leave St. Louis now that Tony La Russa has retired? Or do you think it doesn't change anything?
(JayT from San Francisco)
Money talks, but the Cardinals lose a tiebreaker in the unlikely event they and a competitor are close. (Steven Goldman)
2011-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts on all of the recent "unwritten rules" violations?
(Peter Q from Austin, TX)
Hey Pete, I didn't see the whole game but the Angels-Tigers thing appeared to have bad guys on both sides; I haven't seen that much childishness since I was a day camp counselor. As for the Cardinals-Brewers dustup, Tony La Russa is a self-important schmuck/s> genius, how could anybody question whether he was right? (Jay Jaffe)
2011-06-29 13:30:00 (link to chat)Is the NL Central now the Brewers' to lose? Or do you see the Cardinals staying close enough to make a race of it when Pujols returns?
(Dan from NY)
I really think the Cardinals will find a way to hang in there until Pujols comes back. Love him or hate him, Tony La Russa usually finds a way to get the most out of his club. (John Perrotto)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Today, there's a rumor that the Blue Jays will trade for Colby Rasmus: what would you think the cost would be? How likely could this be? Please be kind: all of us Blue Jays fans feel today like Lawrence Fishbourne did a few months ago.
(Will from Mactaquac)
I would say that the Cardinals would definitely want one of the Jays' top young startnig pitchers to start with, likely Shaun Marcum, along with another player or prospect. However, I don't get the sense the Cardinals have Rasmus on the trading block despite his rocky (at times) relationship with Tony La Russa. (John Perrotto)
2010-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)A lot of rumors that Felipe Lopez is heading to the Cards, what are you hearing? Is he a guy you'd target as number 1 or two hole guy to hit ahead of Albert and Matt? thanks.
(Greg27 from St. Louis)
Haven't been following that one, but makes some sense. I shouldn't start a chat with something that BP can't do, but one of those (few) things is understand the dynamics of a clubhouse. I've had several people in baseball go out of their way to say bad things about Lopez, so no matter what he can do on the field, he's seen as a negative by many. Is Tony La Russa the guy to change that or at least manage it? I don't know, seems like he has enough distractions already, but the relationship of manager to players is fascinating and one of the things I love seeing yet don't see enough from with my beat writer friends. (Will Carroll)
2009-07-30 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why did the cardinals all of a sudden find all this money to get some hitters when the need was just as obvious in the off-season and wouldn't have gutted the farm system?
(stan from springfield)
It seems that fan pressure, not to mention pressure from Tony La Russa, Albert Pujols and media, got Bill DeWitt to pull out the checkbook. (John Perrotto)
2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)A short answer to the question about managers learning from their mistakes: Tony La Russa. Alan Benes. Adam Wainwright. Does the answer make sense?
(Bill from New Mexico)
I can't tell sometimes if Tony La Russa is brilliant or the luckiest manager alive. Or both/neither. His career and the choices he has made are strange. (Marc Normandin)
2009-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you agree with Tony La Russa's decision to give the third base job to converted outfielder Joe Mather over David Friese or Allen Craig? Friese was in a car accident and couldn't play for a week, but it doesn't seem like TLR ever gave him a chance.
(jbuofm from Peoria)
It's a 4-6 week stopgap play. One issue is that if you give it to a decent prospect and they play well, you're stuck when Glaus returns. By giving it to Mather, you avoid that issue; he's no more than a utility guy, anyway. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)The media have Tony La Russa shooting off his mouth about the need to get an "impact player" for St. Louis in the off season, saying he'll be managing there "if he manages at all" next year, and so on. Just TLR being TLR? Or is he seriously thinking about hanging 'em up? Who's the "impact player", any guesses?
(Bill from New Mexico)
Haven't heard who that impact player will but La Russa will be back. He goes through his little emotional spurts where he threatens to retire but he will be back, guaranteed. (John Perrotto)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance the Cards pick up the lefty reliever for whom Tony La Russa seems to be pining? What do you think are the chances that Mark Mulder pitches effectively at the big league level again? Less than 50%?
(P Bu from St. Louis)
Yeah, I think so. I was surprised they didnt get that in return for Anthony Reyes, but his stock had dropped so much they were lucky to get anything. (I can't find this, but didn't the Cards and Indians talk about a Reyes for Cliff Lee deal?) Mulder? Less than 50. 20? (Will Carroll)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Why wouldn't Tony La Russa have convinced management into drafting Pat Venditte? The idea of a switch pitcher seems like something La Russa would've invented himself.
(Mike from Nevada)
TLR: "I can haz both?" (Will Carroll)
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the wealth of knowledge and websites like this out there, why would anybody in their right mind hire guys like Dusty Baker? But then again, why would anybody hire Isiah Thomas, but I digress.
(dangor from New York)
To be sure, I've been one of the most reliably consistent critics of Dusty as a manager, but the man has his virtues. He still manages to command considerable respect within the industry as a leader, and for better or for worse, studio miniondom among the Mousemen helps keep a guy's profile up.

I believe the virtues of his gifts have been greatly exaggerated, but that's not to decry the values of human leadership, personal charisma, and commanding the respect of your team. He's not much of a tactician, he's never really run an especially good lineup card, he's the goofy mancrush king at the sight of gray hair on a player, and he may, like Tony La Russa, have long outlasted any reasonable facsimile of the man originally reputed to be an effective communicator with the press.

Put that kind of manager in charge or a heavily veteran team with a pretty set lineup, and Dusty Baker would fit in rather nicely. Unfortunately, that team isn't the Reds. The Reds are instead a team where there are a lot of options, choices to make, and players to sort out as far as what they're for. Those aren't things Dusty's good at, and it shows. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)When Scott Rolen was a Phillie, he was very vocal about having to play on the Vet turf regularly at all; part of the trade to the Cardinals was because it was clear that Rolen would never re-sign with the Phils as long as they had turf. Do you suspect that Rolen will have a gripe with the Toronto turf similar to what he had in Philly?
(Brandon Isleib from Tuscaloosa)
I don't think he'll be a fan, but as long as he looks in the dugout and doesn't see Tony La Russa, I don't think he'll mind the tradeoff. For now. (Will Carroll)

2009-10-21 17:00:00NLCS Game 5A reminder, a la Tony La Russa in 1990, that managers are just as capable of punk moves as players have ever been accused of. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game OneCanseco was hurt the entire series, but La Russa ran him out there the first three games, then worked himself into a tizzy when it was obvious that Canseco was hurt. This led to the infamous "Tony La Russa's a punk" from the former Mrs. Canseco, an appropriate commentary on how La Russa was pulling something of a stunt to run down a player he'd apparently come to despise. The more lasting effect was that it appropriately killed dead TLR's rep as a 'player's manager' that he'd been anointed with in the '70s and '80s. (Christina Kahrl)
