Tony La Russa for NL Manager of the Year

Postby wrveres » Sat Jul 10, 2004 6:48 pm

where is the love for the Cardinals ?
Or better yet La Russa
this was supposed to be a battle between Chicago and Houston .. They had all the stars. They had the unstoppable pitching. Clemens, Pettitte, Oswalt, Miller, Prior, Wood, Clement, Zambrano and yet what do they get ..... 10 games back. Dusty is so concerned he is rushing back Wood in a very crucial Sunday game. I know its hard to imagine any game bieng crucial before the break, but its rare to see a team come back from 9 games out. I know its been done before, but this is baseballs largest division with 6 teams and everybody, except Pittsburgh is playing better than .500 ball. Houston? ... well Jimy, what does your punk ass have to say now? BTW Jimy, you still owe me 25 homeruns so I suggest you get your unemployed ass into the cage asap. You're not getting any younger. You're def not getting any smarter. Astros fans, and I have to say, I like the Astros, sorry! .. Drayton, and I have to say, I always liked Drayton, sorry. I mean seriouslly. What else can I say but, .. .. sorry. Sure you got that whole possible wild card thing, but still. You were supposed to compete for the world series, not the wildcard, .. .. .. sorry ..


I think the most amazing part of this whole thing, is this list of Regularly Starting, NL Central 10 game leadin', 2004 STL Cardinal outfielders ....

Ray Lankford .. 174 AB
Marlon Anderson .. 149 AB
John Mabry .. 100 AB
So Taguchi .. 90 AB ..

Can somebody get Tony a fricking outfielder all ready

All the more props to Tony La Russa

Tony La Russa .. .. NL MOY

Did I mention they have the best record in baseball?

Tony La Russa .. .. NL MOY

That's some nice info, but if the M-E-T-S METS METS METS make the playoffs, Art Howe is NL MOY.

What about Bobby Cox? What he's done with the less-than-spectacular Braves this year is incredible. Especially with the Jones boys hitting like the Cora boys...

Bobby Cox for NL MOY, and I hate Cox and the Braves.

I have to agree with beltrans_boy! (Except that I like the Braves)

What Bobby Cox has done with this team is amazing.

Check out todays starting lineup:

Rafael Furcal (4 HR in 3 games)

Nick Green (brought him up from the minors this year)

J.D. Drew (having a tremendous season)

Chipper Jones (so far having a season to forget)

Johnny Estrada (Came over in the Millwood deal, All-Star in his first full season)

Andruw Jones (4 K's in 4 AB's tonight says it all)

Adam LaRoche (another rookie, he's got a lot of potential!!)

Charles Thomas (same here)

Mike Hampton (finally coming around???)


Bobby Cox should be the NL Manager Of The Year 2004!

Keep hating. It'll be that much more enjoyable when the Padres are sitting on their couches watching the Mets in the playoffs. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

if the Ginats make the playoffs, Alou has to be one of the top candidates.

i think the key to the Cards success is mostly their pitching- i would give some props to their pitching coach and helpers and their pitchers themselves.. people like Carpenter and Marquis. ;-D
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Ned Yost. While there's no denying the fine work turned in by several NL skippers. what Yost is doing in Milwaukee is ridiculous.

Agreed. If the season ended today he should win it.
