Tony La Russa Taking Day Off to Have Infected Eye Examined
The only Tony La Russa news we’ve focused on lately was his daughter becoming a Raiders cheerleader. The other La Russa story getting attention, aside from his team’s incredible offense lately, is his eye that was infected by conjunctivitis aka pink eye. The picture above shows how Tony’s eye looked back in late April (around the 20th), and it apparently is still bothering him. As the aptly-named Eye on Baseball notes, La Russa will be taking the team’s day off Monday to get the eye checked out at the Mayo Clinic. Even as badly infected as the eye has been, you can’t really blame him for not getting it checked out. After all, what’s more important: having your vision, or not deserting your team in May? The way Chris Carpenter’s been pitching, the former isn’t so bad.
