Bud and Tony need to get stories straight
According to the commish of baseball, he spent the entire Packers-Cardinals game Sunday writing and re-writing his self-serving statement about McGwire’s long-overdue admission that he did indeed use steroids for much of his career. Bud said he “painstakingly went over it’’ many times to get the wording just right.
But check out what else Bud did here when he said, “I knew beforehand, but not much. I’ve talked a lot about with (Cardinals’ manager Tony LaRussa and owner) Bill DeWitt. We’ve talked about it since they made (McGwire) their hitting coach.’’
Really, Bud? You talked about it “a lot’’ with Tony La Russa? This would be the same Tony La Russa who claimed Monday night that he didn’t know a thing about McGwire’s steroid use until Monday. Ooops. Somebody doesn’t have the story straight here.
Nobody believed La Russa, of course, and now Bud has outed him in this particular whopper by admitting they talked about the confession scenario. Maybe Tony wasn’t listening.
