Who Else Did Tony La Russa Call?

I believe we may have a meme on our hands.

First, Tony La Russa called a dog, who was very quick to note that he is, indeed, a dog.

Yo, dog. Thanks, dog.

Then, Tony La Russa was apparently having problems with his credit card company, and the customer service wasn’t very helpful (hat tip: Kyle Kaestner on Twitter):

Peggy doesn’t tend to be very helpful, whether it’s customer service or getting the right reliever warming.

Neither Peggy nor the dog helped get Jason Motte warming, but given the persistence of Tony La Russa, one can’t imagine he gave up there. So I leave it to you, NotGraphs readers. Who else did Tony La Russa call?

Did he call about one of his dogs?

La Russa: “Hey, get Motte up”
Peggy: “Mutt. Right.”

Me: Mr. Ryan, Game 5 was quite a roller coaster ride. Would you care to share your thoughts about what’s going on in the Cardinals’ clubhouse?

Nolan Ryan:

Me: Tony, that kind of judgment from Nolan Ryan has to hurt. What really happened down there?

Tony:

Me: That makes sense. How’d you feel when you found out you wouldn’t be able to redeem your credit card points?

Tony La Russa:

Me: Fair enough. Thanks for your time, gentlemen.

TLR was the central figure in founding the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). It’s entirely possible he called a dog.

I believe this was actually done by somebody else over at Lonestarball pretty much immediately after the incident
