My Sports Rumors:
St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa did what every manager would love to do, retire as a champion. It’s a story book ending to a great career for one of the games brightest minds. The question for the Cardinals then became will pitching coach Dave Duncan return and if he does would he manage the team? Duncan has one year left on his deal and an option for 2013. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports answered those questions today.
@jonmorosi: Spoke with #STLCards pitching coach Dave Duncan. He intends to come back in ’12, effectively ruled himself out of managerial consideration.
Where do the Cardinals turn now, who the hell knows but one things for sure. Whomever they hire will have one of the better pitching coaches in the game now only if they can get him some relievers he could work with.

Tony LaRussa is retiring from baseball. Two thoughts come right to mind: Good luck and good riddance.
Those of you who have followed this blog for awhile know how I feel about LaRussa. I’ve always thought of him as a punk. A baseball manager who’d do anything to win a game.
But the truth is, had Tony managed my beloved...
One of the first emails to land in my inbox after St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa's surprise retirement party was from a longtime Cincinnati Reds fan. It said, "I won't miss Tony at all."
Most Reds fans won't. As far as public enemies are concerned, Reds fans are devoutly anti-Cardinals, and their top five are La Russa, Chris Carpenter, Yadier Molina...
His teams always came prepared, played hard and could never be counted out. Danny Knobler says the Cards and baseball will sorely miss the fearlessness, ingenuity and mystery Tony La Russa brought to the game.

Word this morning that Cardinals manager Tony La Russa has retired. Wow, they sure didn't have much time to celebrate that World Series in St. Louis, did they? Well, at least they got the weekend.
As for the Texas Rangers, it could take a lot longer to get over that Game 6 collapse.
Maybe never. Don't get me wrong. I do think the Rangers could get back to the Fall Classic...
