Fans give Eckstein a warm reception

Fans give Eckstein a warm reception: "Manager Tony La Russa had no problem Monday with fans of his St. Louis Cardinals giving the red-carpet treatment to former Cardinals shortstop and 2006 World Series most valuable player David Eckstein of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

That was a far cry from July when La Russa encouraged Cardinals fans to ignore center fielder Jim Edmonds upon his return to St. Louis after his trade to the San Diego Padres and subsequent signing with the Chicago Cubs."

... La Russa seems to have no problem with Eckstein as compared to Edmonds. Cardinal Nation likes them both.
