The Chicago White Sox are not the fastest team of all time, especially with Luis Robert injured, but they certainly aren’t a slow team. They have tried their hand at base stealing a good amount of times this season and have had mixed results.
\Based on the pregame comments from Tony La Russa on Monday, it doesn’t sound like they will be stealing as much for a while. The comments, however, were of a strange variety. He has been good for that a lot in 2021.
Tony La Russa continues to give strange comments for the Chicago White Sox.
Tony La Russa is always good for a quote. Whether you like him or not, there is no doubting that he has provided plenty of comments that get the attention of a lot of people. He told the media that the stolen bases need to be restricted because they were “ouchy”.
Not many people are going to know what that exactly means but you can probably guess that the Hall of Fame manager is just simply unhappy with the way the base-stealing has gone so far this season. Whether you enjoy the wording or not, at least he is thinking about making adjustments to help his team win.
Of course, Tony La Russa has taken a lot of heat so far this season. He had the stuff with Yermin Mercedes that took the sports conversation by storm. He also doubled down on the scenario more than once. There have also been many different conversations about the way that he has managed the team so far this season. There are a few glaring mistakes that have led to losses throughout the season. Hopefully, those mistakes are something that is in the past and doesn’t continue to happen.
This isn’t a comment that is going to get him in trouble or anything like that but it will generate a few laughs. As long as the White Sox continue to dominate the AL Central the way that they have so far this season, Tony La Russa is going to have a job. There are going to be plenty of people that don’t like that fact but it certainly is a fact.
It would be nice to see this comment lead to some good for their base stealing. There are some guys who have the green light automatically like Billy Hamilton but the rest of them need to be smart. If it leads to something good, a funny use of words is all that is. Hopefully, there isn’t an “ouchy” end to all of this.
