Scouting Report: Tony LaRussa’s Comedic Skills

I’m a comedian. 

And like everyone else, I too, am a critic.

So let’s see what TLR can do:

1. Delivery: Bit of a rambler; needs to get to the punchline quicker; could vary vocal inflection for nuance. (Grade: C+)

2. Audience Control: Didn’t let the ump get one word in. (Grade: A)

3, Timing: Average; nothing spectacular; good thing his focus is managing a World Series bound baseball club featuring the grandest player (and subsequent man-crush of the masses) in the game today. (Grade: C)

No worries, Tony.  Leave the jokes to me.  You go get us that ring.

And don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Happy Friday!

    TLR is like the Eugene Levy of baseball managers….just a lot less funny. (?)
    Would it hurt the guy to crack a smile once every 7 years?

    Mike, and less the glasses… but I get your point. Who would be molesting the pie in this case then? LOL.

    Peter, you kid because you care… I’m sure. Sorry, but the Philly buck stops in 2010. STL all the way!
