Cardinals Manager Tony La Russa is miffed that ESPN moved St. Louis's last game before the all-star break in San Francisco to a night game.
La Russa was so disgruntled yesterday that he implied he hopes the home run derby Monday night on ESPN is a dud.
"I'm saying this a little bit tongue in cheek: It wouldn't bother me to disrupt that home run event because ESPN just pulled a clueless move," La Russa said. "I don't know how they can do that. Any team playing on the West Coast, why would you do that? Do you know what time these guys are getting in?"
