Bryant Gumbel disputes La Russa’s Right to Fame

The erstwhile manager of the Cardinals, Tony La Russa is to be given access to Baseball’s Hall of Fame soon. However, the decision is not without its detractors. 

The reason is La Russa’s constant contact with such steroid-fueled players as Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco. This spot on the face of his otherwise squeaky clean record may ultimately be a source of some serious conflict and last-minute changes. 

Already voices of dissent are beginning to be heard from the corners and sidelines. In particular, HBO’s Bryant Gumbel has expressed his worthy opinion on the matter at hand. 

Before winding up his program as usual he said that fame and shame deserved a few words. Especially the inductees in the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown needed looking into this time around. 

He mentioned La Russa’s name and also said that he had the third greatest record for winning teams. But most of his victories took place under the aegis of the notorious testosterone supplement user Mark McGwire. 

Bryant Gumbel then went ahead and said in a casual offhand manner that this was the selfsame Mark McGwire who had out of sheer shame refused to enter the Hall of Fame due to his reputation as a steroid abuser. 

All that energy and power on the diamond had been due to the juice he was on. Bryant Gumbel furthermore spoke of the contradiction that was so obvious. 

La Russa deserved just as much blame as did his minion Mark. If Mark had used his steroid-developed muscles in the stadium, La Russa had earned false fame from using this player jacked up on steroids. 

Bryant pointed out that he carried no ill will or enmity in his heart for either one. But you should not induct one and deduct the other. Things had to be consistent and not so contradictory. 

The television sports show in which Gumbel spoke these words is to be repeated on air several times. His poignant words definitely show the mirror to such fake figures as La Russa and Mark McGwire.
