tony la russa reacts to the news of manny ramirez's suspension

From sportswriter Jimmy Golen's AP story:
St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa was talking to reporters before Thursday’s game against Pittsburgh when a clubhouse attendant stuck his head in and said: “Manny Ramirez, 50 games.”

La Russa’s first reaction: “You’re kidding me.”

Then he checked the schedule to see whether the Cardinals would be playing the Dodgers while Ramirez is out.
That's why we love La Russa.
