Tony Larussa Announces His Retirement

Talk about going out on top! Tony Larussa announced today that he will be retiring as manager of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals. I can understand why he would leave now. How would he ever top this season? Answer: He won’t. This last season was a singular moment not only in his career but also in this history of baseball. Everyone likes to go out a winner, and he is leaving at the top of his game. Read about it here.

    Not quite the knife in the heart you all had with Texas losing, but I am shocked! All his interviews made it sound like he was staying. I also think this means Pujols is going to go, too. I hope I’m wrong.

      It will be interesting to see if this impacts the Pujols decision.
