(Hi. I'm Brian. You probably don't know me from Obsessions of a Cardinal Fan but you might know me from the comments section at Viva El Birdos. I'm the newest team member here at Redbirds Fun.)
PTI opened with Rogers, as you might expect.
Wilbon would have made a bigger deal of it during the game, if for no other reason than to mess with his psyche.
TK wanted La Russa to have Rogers searched on the mound.
Wilbon's right. Even if you don't find anything on Rogers, it still gets inside his head. Suddenly, he's rattled and maybe he makes some mistakes to Cardinal hitters. La Russa is a master of playing head games with the opposing team, so for him to pass up the opportunity last night was curious.
