read ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ê Tony La Russa free read One Last Strike ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB N baseball history revealing with fascinating behind the scenes details how under his expert management the St Louis Cardinals emerged victorious in the 2011 World Series despite countless injuries mishaps and roadblocks along the way Talking candidly about the remarkable sea Full disclosure When it comes to anything and everything St Louis Cardinals I am an unabashed homer My bias is deeply ingrained and cannot be removed Perhaps that is why it pains me to say that while Tony LaRussa s One Last Strike certainly has its moments it is by and large a disappointing read My reasoning is simple there simply is not enough there thereTLR is a remarkably intelligent man possessing perhaps one of the greatest baseball minds of his generation But that doesn t always come across in the book If anything he seems eager to gloss over some of the things that 1 Make him human and 2 Would add remarkable depth to his recounting of the 2011 Cardinals I m not a fan of tabloid reading by any stretch of the imagination Still it would have been nice to hear TLR speak about his DWI arrest during spring training the breakdown of contract talks with Albert Pujols who ultimately left the team for allegedly greener pastures in Anaheim or his endless issues with phenom center fielder Colby Rasmus who was ultimately traded away for the parts that helped make up this championship team Alas TLR blew right past these issues One Last Strike is not a bad book It s just not as good as it could be Given the level of expectation that comes from being a Cardinals devotee that is disappointing Feel free to read it but lower all levels of expectation beforehand
