Cards’ Kyle Lohse Impersonates Manager Tony La Russa (Video)
With St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa away from the team as he gets treatment in Phoenix for a case of shingles, someone has had to fill in. Yesterday afternoon, that someone was pitcher Kyle Lohse, who sported the 66-year-old manager’s jersey, along with a pair of his patented shades, as he made his way towards home plate to exchange scorecards prior to the Cardinals’ 9-1 victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Lohse wasn’t pitching yesterday, but when he has started, the Cards have been getting much of the same results. The 32-year-old is currently posting a 4-2 record in seven starts this season, with an ERA of 2.24. As for La Russa, he is headed back to St. Louis where he will rest and continue his recovery.
Get well Tony, and no need to rush back too soon. Kyle looks like his is filling in just fine.
Here is a link to the video, because Major League Baseball is too stupid to let their fans enjoy highlights without having to go to their website, search for it and watch their ads.
