I'm sure FOX will be throwing money at him like it's going out of style if the Cards don't make it to the WS. He'll fit right in to their booth with the other whiners. :whiner:

Oh hell yeah!

I think that there is little chance of LaRussa not managing for a few more years.

I don't think he'll retire, I just think they would invite him to work in the booth for the WS. His team is not out of it yet though.

I'm not aware if there is a rule against an active manager doing this. Don't they do it all the time?

I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's not as though he would have anything else to do once the Cardinals were eliminated.

Vintage LaRussa trying to work the umps.

That concept has worked well for Mike Scoscia and the
Halos in the ALCS,right??:whiner: :whiner: :rolling: :rolling:

I've never been a LaRussa basher, but the Van Gundy comparison was painfully accurate.

Anyone remember when the post-season was once jeopardized because the umpires' union wanted contract concessions? Times have changed . . .

and here he goes crying some more at a pitch that wasn't even close to being a strike.

And yet, the same pitch was called a strike against Edmonds.

I can't remember an active manager doing it, but they have had active players do it (Leiter, Boone).
