It's interesting that Phil wrote this given that literally for months he was insisting in print and on Chicago Tribune Live! that he thought Tony was going to be the next White Sox manager.

Did I read that right? :scratch: La Russa is an unofficial consultant to the Tigers.:angry:

In that case, don't be surprised when Brandon Inge shows up to camp packing on 80 pounds of new muscle

So, let me get this straight.....he won't manage against his good friend Jimmy Leyland and but consult against his other good friend (or so we're told he is), JR?

Loyalty means you can pick your friends.

The entire concept makes TLR look soft. Seriously, it's not like he'd be hooking up with Leyland in a heavyweight boxing match or the Octagon. He'd be managing, just like in the 2006 Series. Does he not care to play checkers or cards with Leyland either? Somebody's feelings might get hurt?

They talked about this during the playoffs and I think I saw it on a Sunday baseball game with the Tigers. The 2 talk baseball all the time.

Tony hasn't told Jim he needs better starting pitching apparently. I can consult Leyland too - Verlander can't do it by himself.

All speculation on Rogers's part. That's why they pay him.

La russa doesnt seem like the type of guy that gives away his services so I wonder what that consulting really means with the tigers.

I'm damn glad LaRussa will not be back with the White Sox, hopefully ever.

Billable hours, perhaps. Plus a retainer.

Lawyers and billable hours have a lot to do with each other.

Looks like Selig wants to hire Tony.

Perfect. One steroid apologist hiring another.

Firing TLR in 1986 was a big mistake; hiring him in 2011 would have been a bigger mistake.
