Maybe it’s because I’m getting a bit tired of hearing so many trade rumors, but I’m feeling mighty childish/punchy today (more so than usual, anyway).
And maybe that’s why I find this this headline on ESPN to be hysterical:
“Rolen seeks trade; LaRussa won’t ‘please Scott’”
Now Scott, you knew very well going into this relationship that Tony had the reputation of being a bit stingy in that department. There’s a long line of guys that couldn’t convince LaRussa to please them. And trust me, they’ve tried everything. A box of Ferrero Roche chocolates, a pocket full of posies, won an MVP Award, posted his bail, and all were denied.
I don’t blame you for trying, though.
