La Russa: Would Have and Could Have's
There is no doubt in my mind (with an added day off) it would have been a more competitive series."La Russa told reporters on Monday when he was talking about the extra day off the Red Sox had going into the World Series since the NLCS started one day later then the ALCS.
Boston had a lot going for it and deserved to win...We celebrated to 3 or 4 in the morning, had Friday to take care of family and fly to Boston and Saturday we are hitting in the series -- now that was a scramble, Now you try to explain that and it sounds like an excuse. So you stay away from it. I just felt that it should have gone six or seven games because we were a good enough team to make it a really good series," La Russa said
