La Russa is a drunk

St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa was arrested early Thursday and charged with misdemeanor DUI after he was found asleep at the wheel in his running SUV at a green light. La Russa's SUV was stopped at a light that, according to police, went through two cycles of green. A driver behind La Russa had to go around his vehicle, police said. Police found La Russa slumped over in the driver's seat of the running SUV. The manager of the world champion Cardinals had his foot on the brake and did not respond to knocks on the window, police said. He finally woke up and parked the car.

The higher powers work in mysterious ways. A day after legendary boozer David Wells says he will give up drinking, La Russa is arrested for driving tanked. But if the drinking equilibrium is to be maintained in MLB, more drunken stupidness needs to be on the menu. What next? Will the cops find Mike Piazza passed out in the back seat of an SUV wearing a pre-op tranny?
