La Russa Pre-game Comments – Wed., April 5

The Cardinals manager speaks with the press prior to Wednesday's game at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

No real scoops today, but as Tony La Russa filled out his blue note cards as always, he provided updates on Sidney Ponson's pitching and the new Park, John Rodriguez' health, Braden Looper's role, getting the reserves game action including Scott Spiezio in the outfield, Scott Rolen's playing schedule and more.

Everything went fine until Mike Shannon showed up and corrected the time on the wall clock in the manager's office and told everyone that he hosted both the Springfield and Memphis clubs at his restaurant after Tuesday night's game.
