I hate/love TL. Smart, arrogant, sensitive, prickly, loyal, bullheaded, occasionally humble, visionary, knee jerk reactionary, he's a fascinating package. Its so ironic that a writer wrote a book about him to debunk sabermetrics.

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

desert - my thoughts too. I would guess he gets a rental during spring-training.
Although some do take measures so that they can have their own vehicle for the 6+ wks they're down there.
I know a guy who got paid to drive a Reds player's SUV or whatever back to Cincinnati after spring-training concluded.


That alphabet thing is REALLY freaking bad.
And like our recent discussion about DUI in OOT, don't forget that it's not just comically stupid. LaRussa was actually driving his vehicle in that condition and only has dumb luck to credit for not hurting/killing himself or someone else.

whitebread,
I didn't mean he wasn't that drunk. I asked about the .093 thing because I was expecting higher based on his walk/alphabet skills.


[/ QUOTE ]

Well if you look at the time lapses almost 2 hours passed between when he did the roadside tests and when he took the breathalyser. He was likely way higher than .093 when he attempted to walk in a straight line and recited the "alphabet".

Tony LaRussa drives a Ford?

[/ QUOTE ]

To be fair, he never finished as high as 126th at the WSOP. He's got money but he ain't no mad balla like people who finish 126th in Main Events.

[/ QUOTE ]

That's kinda dumb. His salary is way higher than the $15,000 one would receive for finishing 126th in the 2004 WSOP ME.

[/ QUOTE ]

in 1998 i worked @ a gas station/car wash. tony larussa came in for a fill up & wash. he was driving a stock green suburban.

he may not be into fancy cars. though he does care about pets.
