The LaRussa Factor
Wait a minute! Stop the presses! Did this just happen? A well-pitched, well-played Major League Baseball game from both teams? The Cardinals prevailed tonight in Phoenix by the score of 3 - 1 in 2:35. A game with a great pace and, thus, a show with a great flow! This was truly a fun game/telecast to watch and direct. Trust me, because of the TV broadcast schedule of local telecasts - 150 games - this type of game is cherished. One may experience a game such as this between two good teams fighting for the best playoff position. This game featured the best team in baseball - the Cardinals - and a team fighting for their playoff lives - the Diamondbacks. Kudos to the AZ D-Backs! It looks to me like the Tony LaRussa influence is being felt by this club. I have seen the LaRussa influence with the Cardinals. An influence that carries over today despite the fact that he hasn't been a part of the organization for almost 4 years. Good to see with the D-Backs!!
