Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season
I always thought of LaRussa as a manager who had a tremendous effect. Even when half the team (Cardinals) was on the DL, they were still usually right up there in the standings.
Now he's gone and they still did well this year, even thought they're about to be eliminated.
So that gives more credence to the "organization as the major factor".
