ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is dealing with a case of conjunctivitis, or "pinkeye," in his right eye and may be battling the condition for another couple of weeks.

"They said sometimes it's 10 days, two weeks," La Russa said Tuesday. "Just getting a little weary of dealing with it."

La Russa continues to manage the club despite the illness. His right eye is just about swollen shut and much of the right side of his face has a red color.
