Peace out, Tony La Russa. It only took you 33 seasons to win 3 World Series and become the third-winningest manager in MLB history. Lot-a-threes in there. Good news for San Diego fans… he can’t lead the Cardinals to any more first round NLDS wins over the Padres. That right, the Padres took one game in the NL Division Series in 1996, 2005 and 2006 combined. La Russa can’t do that to us anymore. That baton will be passed to Francona now. McGwire? Who? Who gets the honor? How does this affect Pujols resigning? So many questions… the biggest question is this: Did anyone catch that joke I made? The one suggesting the Padres will ever make the post-season again…
