Tony LaRussa is not a stupid man, so to STILL tell the press you don't believe McGwire didn't use steroids is ridiculous.

the last time I heard TLR talk about the McGwire thing (a few weeks ago) I could tell his words were a bit different than before - as mentioned above - now it's he never "saw" Before - I thought the man was going to cry when people spoke about McGwire in an unflattering way - I mean, jeez man, get a grip and look at reality.

I'm sure Tony has some paternal feelings for McGwire (the son he never had, etc.), so it's tough for him to face the facts. Not to mention that McGwire has put him in a terrible position.

"McGwire has put him in a terrible position"

As in the World Series Game 2 with the stuff on Kenny Rogers hand. If he don't have Mac hanging over his head. La Russa would have an legitment argument about cheating, but he can't say nothing.

It's like the oj case or anything in politics.
people can't accept things that go against their personal attachments to ideas.

"No way OJ could have killed those two people in cold blood" or
"MY candidate would NEVER do anything like that" or
"Bonds said he never knowingly took steroids and I believe him" or
"McGwire is my guy and I stand behind him"

LaRussa is a fiercely loyal guy and he will likely never admit that he thinks mcgwire used.

Mark not only used the stuff...he groomed Giambi on the stuff too.

But of course nobody ever saw it and Giambi will never admit because he is no kiss and tell guy.

You're right Kevin. We all have different sets of standards and it is very hard to see things when we're emotionally attached to them.

And the make believe game we play is so much more fun than reality that we help out by being blind, deaf, mute AND dumb if needed.
