Default Tony La Russa retires


After 33 years, he's going out on top. I like to see that, and hope we sticks to it. There are rumors it could be health-related, but regardless, he's heading straight to Cooperstown. Thanks for the memories, Tony.

Leaving on his terms and with his team on the top. This is the only way to go out.

chiefsfan27 is on a distinguished road

Glad to see Tony go out on top. For a guy that might be the best manager of all time, it's the only fitting way to go.

As a Cardinals fan though, I'm a little anxious about who the next manger will be. They'll have some pretty big shoes to fill.
