Gotta say, pretty bummed to hear that Jason LaRue is hangin’ it up due to Johnny Cueto’s cleat-work. According to C. Trent’s story on CBSSports.com, LaRue is still suffering from concussion symptoms resulting from Cueto’s kick to the head during the Cardinals/Reds malay on August 10th.
Whatever side of the fence you’re on in terms of Cueto’s actions, you have to feel for an athlete having to retire due to something pretty silly. We’ve had a good time poking fun at LaRue and his creative hair stylings, but it’s a bummer to see him going out like this.
