Listen in as Tony LaRussa was roasted by legendary college basketball coach Bob Knight, actor/musician Billy Bob Thornton, Detroit Tigers’ Manager Jim Leyland, former Cardinal Steve Kline, and Martin Kilcoyne at this year’s St. Louis Baseball Writers Dinner. Adam Wainwright and Albert Pujols also accepted their St. Louis Baseball Men of the Year awards.
Many of this year’s Gold Glove Award winners are worthy of selection and are fine choices. I know this is a subjective process but I’d like to believe that this comes down to more than a popularity contest when managers and coaches are the ones casting votes. Unfortunately that’s just not the case, particularly in the American League.
