Tony LaRussa stands up for...The Cubs?!?!?

Anyone else see this on SportsCenter last night/this morning? Apparently (I can't get the Post-Dispatch web-site to work worth a damn this morning), they wrote a disparaging article about the Cubs in advance of this weekends series in St. Louis, and LaRussa went nuts on one of their reporters in the post-game press conference after last nights game saying, "that's not how you treat guests to our town." Now, I know that Tony and Lou Pinella are good friends, but this is supposed to be a rivalry, right?

It doesn't matter. It's not how you would want to be treated in an opposing town, and he simply has too much respect for the game. Besides, this was always more of a friendly rivalry, until dumb@$$ Dusty Baker got there. He's the one that essentially caused all the hostility between the two teams. I think now with him gone, it'll go back the way it was. Plus, on the Cards side, you also don't want that kind of inspiration for the other team, taking a copy of the paper, putting it up on the locker room wall for everyone to see, and be like a "See, no respect. Let's prove 'em wrong" kinda thing.
