VanSlyke has pissed me off ever since he retired.
He has had it out for LaRussa since LaRussa cut him when he tried to make the Cardinals in his bid to return to St. Louis in spring training at the end of his career.
AVS has done nothing but piss and moan about LaRussa and how he manages. He's a bitter, crybaby, ex-player and it's annoying as hell.
And I'm sure that LaRussa's Cardinals beating VanSlyke's Tigers in the 2006 World Series only pissed off VanSlyke that much more.
VanSlyke's comments surrounding the Kenny Roger's pine tar incident also pissed me off.
I liked VanSlyke when he played here...but I can't stand him now.
I'm surprised he backed LaRussa in the article.
