Tony La Russa yesterday, responding to the considerable criticism of leftfielder Chris Duncan by everyone who isn’t Tony La Russa:
“I get so tired of the unfair treatment of Chris Duncan. It makes me want to vomit. And you can quote me on that. This guy is treated unfairly. These fans have a reputation of being knowledgeable that they deserve but they have a couple quirks. And he is one of them.”
The St. Louis Cardinals, a couple hours ago:
Chris Duncan, the Cards slumping outfielder, has been optioned to Class AAA Memphis.
So does the Cardinals brass make La Russa want to vomit too?
