Was Tony LaRussa drunk?

I'm not crazy, am I? The correct move in the bottom of the 9th, down by one, bases loaded, two outs... Put in Albert Pujols over Rowand. If the Cardinals were in contention for the postseason, I'm sure he would've played it differently. I thought that making World Series home field advantage dependent on the All-Star Game was meant to make the game meaningful, but LaRussa obviously didn't get the memo.

I guess that if you're a Cardinal fan, you can't blame him for not wanting to risk his star, but as a baseball fan, LaRussa was terrible last night. I wonder how the Mets, Brewers and Dodgers feel right about now?

So, am I thinking straight or am I just making a big deal out of nothing?
