Check out this article on how former Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and ’11 centerfielder Colby Rasmus failed to meet when the ex-skipper went to Yankee Stadium yesterday to give the now-Blue Jay his championship ring. Whatever the excuse may be, you would think that the presentation of a World Series ring (albeit, in an informal setting) would be enough for La Russa and Rasmus to agree on a time and place. However, it should be noted that the relationship between the two had become contentious before Rasmus was shipped out to Toronto in exchange for Edwin Jackson, Octavio Dotel and Marc Rzepczynski in July of last year. http://sports.nationalpost.com/2012/07/18/la-russa-brings-rasmus-a-ring-but-they-fail-to-connect-again/
