Tony La Russa says he’s not going to manage the Angels
This is why Tony La Russa will be remembered as a true Cardinal great… and Albert Pujols will not.

Guess that’s a relief to Mike Scioscia, who currently has the job and is under contract to manage the Angels through 2018. But Ken Rosenthal and La Russa have heard the rumors, and those rumors had to be addressed:
“I’m not going to manage again,” La Russa told FOXSports.com on Wednesday night. “I’m going to work for a team someday. But it won’t be managing.”
La Russa had planned to be at the Tigers-Angels series this weekend because he is close with Jim Leyland, Dave Dombrowski and Albert Pujols, but now he says he’s not going so as not to make it appear as though he’s looming over Mike Scioscia’s shoulder. Which is pretty classy of him.
Still, even if La Russa isn’t interested, I stand by my preseason prediction that Mike Scioscia will be the first manager fired this year, five years left on his contract or not…
