It’s not that far fetched. Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa said he would add Big Mac when rosters are expanded on August 31st if the Cardinals are in the playoff hunt to use as a pinch hitter.
LaRussa revealed his plans in an interview with the Contra Costa Times. Actually, it’s more of a dream, but he did say it wasn’t totally out of the question either. McGwire only received 23.4% of the votes for the Hall of Fame this go around.
LaRussa said McGwire will address the media before Spring Training…maybe even before the end of the month.
