I am now officially sick of this whole Kenny Rogers thing.
Dirt, pine tar, I don’t care. Why don’t I care? Because after he washed it off he continued smoking the Cardinals. They sucked last night, and that’s that. If they had paid more attention to what they were doing, rather than what Rogers might have been doing, maybe they would have hit a few more balls.
La Russa can be magnanimous about the whole thing, but you don’t start a war with a guy who worked for you for six years and knows all your secrets. With all of the crap the St. Louis press and populace is now slinging at Rogers and Detroit I wouldn’t mind seeing the Cardinals get spanked in Game 3 (and 4, and 5).
It was probably dirt stuck to the pine tar. Everybody is right, kinda. Now STFU.
