Rainy day podcast: La Russa, rain and Game Six

Tony frontpageST. LOUIS -- Tony La Russa was a giant front-page topic in Wednesday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch (right, click for bigger view) but we were all forced to wait another day to see if his Game Five meltdown will prove to be a turning point in the World Series for the Texas Rangers. 

Longtime Post-Dispatch columnist Bernie Miklasz had some interesting insight Wednesday on La Russa at 67 and wonders if health issues (La Russa has been dealing with shingles and medication issues all season) and Father Time are slowing one of the game's great minds, like happened with legendary Dallas Cowboys football coach Tom Landry.

As for the postponement of Game Six, it adds to the pitching intrigue if we can get to Game Seven. Hear my thoughts on all the latest at the Series in my rainy day podcast by clicking below.
