I hope we can all be half as successful as Tony LaRussa, who just announced his intent to retire.
He won 3 World Series championships and 3 more pennants and he managed in every single season from 1979 to 2011.
It's certainly interesting--LaRussa got a lot of heat this post-season for some gaffes (most notably having the wrong guy warming in the bullpen)--and I suppose it makes a lot of sense for him to go out on top.
Congrats, Tony, to a wonderful career!
Now here's an interesting thought--if you are a prime managerial candidate, are you more interested in Boston, St. Louis, or Chicago Cubs (if they replace Quade)?
