Tony La Russa Retires From Cardinals, Could Front Office Job With White Sox Be Next?

↵

In what many people thought was a surprise move, St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa has retired as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. La Russa could take a year off from baseball all together or he could join a team's front office. That team could just be the Chicago White Sox.

La Russa managed the White Sox back in the 1980's and he has been close with White Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. Reinsdorf was even at game seven of the World Series to congratulate his friend after the Cardinals won another World Series title.

The former Cardinal's manager has stated in the past his desire to end his baseball career in the front office. The White Sox could be the perfect fit. As a special adviser La Russa could be a huge asset to new manager Robin Ventura.

Don't be shocked if Jerry Reinsdorf does try to bring La Russa into the Sox Organization. It would be a great fit for all parties involved.
