Colin Cowherd Says Tony Romo Has Officially ‘Lost His Mind’

  Colin Cowherd Says Tony Romo Has Officially ‘Lost His Mind’ Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave a ringing endorsement of New York Jets rookie Zach Wilson earlier this week. But not everyone sees eye-to-eye with the well-renowned CBS analyst. For instance, FOX Sports host Colin Cowherd said that Romo has “officially lost his mind” after claiming that Wilson could be a top three quarterback […] The post Colin Cowherd Says Tony Romo Has Officially ‘Lost His Mind’ appeared first on The Spun.

Tony La Russa took major heat last week for criticizing his player, Yermin Mercedes, for hitting a home run on a 3 -0 pitch while his team was up big – then defending an opposing pitcher who threw at him a day later. The heat has distracted from some of his miscues on the managerial side of things . He had a particularly rough series in New York this weekend, contributing to a sweep at the hands of the Yankees. In the ninth inning of Sunday’s game, a 5-4 walk-off win for the Yankees, La Russa left Aaron Bummer in after the reliever pitched the eighth inning. Bummer started off the inning by giving up a

Tony La Russa , special assistant to Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, doesn't like the idea of dealing prospects for a one-year rental at the upcoming trade deadline. "You're asking my opinion, I'll give it to you: I've been down for two years now in spring training, observing [prospects], we ' re definitely stocking the minor leagues again with legitimate prospects, and we do have a process if you want to make a deal," La Russa said. "But I know that there's a very strong sentiment that this is a good time to rebuild and refresh our minor leagues so we can keep making

Tony La Russa was pretty upset on Tuesday night after one of his players was hit on the helmet by a pitch.

Luis Robert was batting to start the bottom of the fifth inning for the Chicago White Sox against the Los Angeles Angels and was hit on the helmet by an Oliver Ortega pitch. La Russa didn’t take long to come out and have some words with home plate umpire Bill Welke and Angels catcher Max Stassi.

“That look in Tony La Russa’s eye, man,” Angels announcer Matt Vasgersian began.

Then Vasgersian shared the things he has witnessed that anger La Russa. It’s a good list.

Shoulder soreness will force lefty Carlos Rodon to miss next start

  Shoulder soreness will force lefty Carlos Rodon to miss next start Rodon missed a little more than two weeks on the IL and has pitched well in two starts since returning, posting a 2.70 ERA over 10 innings. However, the Sox were easing Rodon back into action, limiting him to 144 total pitches over the two outings. La Russa said Jimmy Lambert would likely be called up to take Rodon’s spot in what has become an increasingly injury-riddled pitching staff — Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn are also on the 10-day injured list.The latest on other injury situations around baseball…Cavan Biggio and Ross Stripling are slated to begin rehab assignments at the Blue Jays’ Triple-A affiliate, Sportsnet.

La Russa made no effort to reckon with or apologize for his role in any of this or explain whether he has spent time considering the experiences of Black people in this country or in baseball. Instead, he proceeded to list Black players that played for him and talked about racist bones — always good things for your manager to clear up on Day One. There is no debate, no controversy and no Plan B – at least none that anyone outside the Jets organization knows at the moment. Zach Wilson is on the fast track to be the Jets’ Opening Day starter this September, just one month after he turns 22. 17m ago.

“I have personally witnessed Tony agree about a few things on a number of occasions,” Vasgersian said. “He gets angry at the suggestion that Harold Baines is not a Hall of Famer. He gets angry when he is compared unfavorably to younger managers who are somehow considered more analytically-savvy. But nothing makes him angrier than when his player gets hurt, even if there is no intent.”

That’s probably a good part of the reason why La Russa has been so successful as a manager. The guy loves his players and goes to bat for them.

Baines, by the way, played for La Russa on the White Sox and Oakland A’s. Baines was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2019 despite being dropped from the initial ballot due to low voting totals.

As for questions about La Russa’s age, Tim Anderson had a great response.

While the 76-year-old La Russa ’s hiring last month was widely questioned, he came back into the news Monday when ESPN reported he had been charged with DUI one day before the White Sox named him manager. “They knew, and they hired him anyway,” The Athletic’s Keith Law tweeted Monday La Russa ’s return to the dugout came as a surprise to many, immediately leading to questions over how he would connect with the White Sox’ young core. He also previously questioned Colin Kaepernick’s sincerity when he knelt during the national anthem in 2016, though he claimed upon his hiring that he

Tony La Russa had spent nearly a decade in retirement from his managerial days, already enshrined into Cooperstown with seemingly nothing left to accomplish. But why would La Russa want to take on such a challenge? Why end what had been nearly a decade of retirement from the day-to-day grind of managing a Major League Baseball team? Why add more to what was already a Hall-of-Fame career? Even Jerry Reinsdorf, the White Sox chairman whose close friendship with La Russa has been a focal point in the conversation surrounding the hire, wondered the same thing as recently as last
