    If I'm Albert Pujols I'm keeping this asshat as FAR away from me as possible.

    Sources: Tony La Russa will return to St. Louis Cardinals in '10 - ESPN

    Mark: Hey Albert, you want som-

    Albert: No man! Stay away from me with that syringe for the last time dammit!

    Mark: Aww, come on, it won't hurt..

    Albert: Don't try and fool me with that bullshit.

    Mark: It will make you feel good. It will make you feel better and like a brand new person, stronger. Your critics will be speechless at your power.

    Albert: Yeah right. *Walks off*

    Mark: Damn, worked for A-Rod.

    P.S: I would rep you just for including "You're doing it wrong" if I could Art. :lol:

    If I was LaRussa, I would tell McGwire "Make sure you stay away from Albert's poohole."

    Somebody gave the Andro kid work?

    He sucked as a hitter, was only long ball, what a rock.

    Nope.

    NY made a similar mistake a few years ago, letting Chris Chambliss be hitting coach, he sucked.

    You don't have to be a great hitter to coach, but power hitters rarely make good hitting instructors.
