La Russa DWI Video

The YouTube link was posted in the thread below and I was able to watch it, but now I either get a "service not available" or it tries unsuccessfully to load. Maybe it will work again later; if not, supposedly it was being shown on ESPN.

Now the YouTube link is working again, but it takes a long time to load. Must be plenty of Cardinals fans checking it out.

Looking at that video, it appears his first mistake is that he pulled the cop over.

Seriously, if you look at the time, almost 2 hours passed between the roadsides and when he took the breathalyzer. He was way higher than .093 when attempted to walk in a straight line and recited the "alphabet". Who knows, maybe he had some pain pills/muscle relaxers too.

I want to go to a cubs cards game next year with a sign reading:

IMO it looked really winded out there so walking the line was hard. The abc's were just ridiculous. No way 2 glasses of wine makes you like that, especially if your a manager of a baseball team. Those 2 glasses must have been filled up to the very top. He most have chased it with something else as well.

Why didn't he call his lawyer. One of the huge advantages of being rich is always getting intouch with a good laywer for consel.

He should have called a cab!

You know, I don't know if I could walk in a straight line or balance like that if I were stone-cold sober. If I were pulled over by the cops like that, I think I'd be so freaked out that I'd be falling over even if I weren't drunk. I'd be a nervous wreck and probably crying, too. And forget that left-right stuff. I suck at that.

And don't they sometimes ask for the alphabet backwards? I don't even know if I can do that right now without a lot of pausing and hesitation, and maybe a few screwups. I have a really hard time with v and w in particular, and under pressure, I don't think I could do it. :o

Of course, if I were stone-cold sober then I'd blow a 0 and they'd just think I was a nervous moron, but still.

One detail I've always remembered about La Russa is that he doesn't write the vowels when filling out his lineup card. If he filled out a 2007 Orioles batting order, it would look something like this

Maybe he honestly doesn't remember how the alphabet goes?

    • The MLB Network had a writer covering the Marlins on the other day and she mentioned Mullins for Lopez and seemed to indicate the Marlins may have to add someone else. I wonder if that is an even trade or if we have to add someone. It seems to me that trading for a young pitcher and signing a veteran would be the best use of our resources.
    • Asking here as honestly have no clue, is the Fan Cost Index sensitive to StubHub, Seatgeek, etc?     My guess is it uses the Clubs List Price, but like everything else in the world that's just the starting point of a negotiation. Now that the team is better and the kiddo old enough, will probably get back more next season, but know I'm behind on the most efficient consumer practices for any given day.     The Yard won't be as full as it'll get in a few years, so imagining surge pricing will only be taking baby steps in 2023.
    • I don't think we really disagree about much. There is wide array of ticket prices. And I think even Fan Price Index shows the Orioles being particularly fair, and if I recall correctly their family of four number for 2022 was $156 You're reading my comments as if they were directed at the Orioles. They were not. Nor were they a criticism, as much as an identification of one of the factors that is feeding the decline of generational popularity in baseball. Many of us have a love for the game. For me that love was cemented by two things. My Dad taking me to the ballpark as a kid... and my Little League experience as a kid.  Affordability was a big part of that. When I was a kid we didn't have two nickles to rub together. My father worked two jobs to make ends meet. Mom delivered newspapers to keep us ahead of the bills. But we could still afford to go to 33rd St a couple times a year... Saw Mark Belanger hit a home run...  that was a rare feat.. and I had a ratty old mitt and some fish-heads to play Little League with. I found old deposit bottles in the woods and took 'em to the 7-11 to buy baseball cards. That's where I fell in love with the game. Eventually my father built a very successful business. and we didn't have to worry about that kind of thing.. But I kept my love for the game that was built in those early experiences. Baseball was once literally the cost of a matinee movie...  stands were packed... all the time... but slowly.. generationally.. this has changed... the last generation to FULLY embrace baseball were boomers...  I guess there's a part of me that thinks selling out every game ...and families embracing is early might change the trajectory baseball is on... wishful thinking maybe      
    • The same thing happened in San Francisco when Roman was there.   They had one truly great season with Kaepernick, and then nothing.   Not that I'm comparing Lamar to Kaepernick, but at their best under Roman, they are pretty similar. I don't know if they are using this system because they think Lamar can't handle a more complex system, or because Roman is stuck using the same stuff over and over.    Roman needs to be gone regardless of what happens with Lamar.  They need to get rid of Ricard and start running a real pro-style offense.   
    • I guess I’ve reached the point of the off-season where I’m at do we really need to add a bat?  Stowers and Vavra spent the last 1/3 of the season up. Westburg is ready. Cowser could be ready are June.    Is Brantley, Voit, or Mancini worth even a one year deal?  I could see us rolling with what we have, figuring out what we have, and signing a vet depth bat like Jesus Aguilar to a milb deal with a ST invite. If we need a bat, we can always get a rental at the deadline.
