Just read LaRussa was arrested for a DUI in February of this year… that’s new info correct? Apparently the team knew about it. Unreal. He wasn’t bored, he’s been drunk and that’s why Jerry brought him in. This whole situation is embarrassing.

And he was charged with the DUI the day before the Sox officially hired him. Well done, guys.

It’s past time for Michael Reinsdorf to take the keys away from his father.

Here’s the story, with historical context.

La Russa previously was arrested for DUI after he fell asleep at a traffic light near the spring training facility of the St. Louis Cardinals, whom he managed for 16 years and led to two World Series. La Russa’s blood-alcohol level was .093%, over the legal limit of .08%. His arrest came five weeks before Josh Hancock, a Cardinals pitcher, died when he drove drunk and crashed into a parked truck.

On the day of his guilty plea to the 2007 DUI, La Russa said in a statement: “I accept full responsibility for my conduct, and assure everyone that I have learned a very valuable lesson and that this will never occur again.”
