Former St. Louis Cardinals slugger Jack Clark is nothing if not outspoken.

In the past couple of years, "Jack the Ripper" was ousted from his gig with Fox Sports Midwest for, alledgedly, calling his former team quitters. Not long after, he publicly blasted steroid users, calling them "creeps"...saying they have no place in baseball.

So, when Clark joined the boys over at Joe Sports Fan for their weekly podcast, it should come as no surprise that he ripped (see what I did there?) the "LaRussa Regime".

In a nutshell, Clark (who now works with KTRS in St. Louis) is critical of LaRussa for not allowing any of the 80s Cardinals players to associate with his team, firing longtime personnel and hiding steroid use bringing in his own medical staff.

Tony was responsible for a lot of the cheating that went on. And, as a result, he hid it with his own medical people.

I've gotta hand it to Matt Sebek and Josh Bacott for getting "the Ripper" to open up. Sure, Clark is never really shy, at out call one of the game's greatest managers a liar.
