Fun fact! TK and Jim Leyland are both younger than La Russa.


TK and Leyland — combined!

Okay, maybe that is just an “alternative fact.” :)

Renteria would make a nice addition as bench coach for the Twins.  Better communication with the Latin players and good insight to the CWS players.  Move Mike Bell to the FO.

Things get ever more interesting:

 

LaRussa was charged with a DUI the day before CHI announced his hiring.

Marcus Stroman has already said on Twitter there is no amount of money they could offer that would entice him to sign with Chicago. Simply because they hired La Russa. They'll still attract some free agents, but no doubt this hurts their odds with players around the league.

Yeah, this hire makes no sense. Society has changed and the younger players aren't going to respond well to him. This will end worse than Gibbs back to coach the Washington Football Team.

If this is going to go over as well as rain at a papier mache convention, I just hope he's there long enough to make sure Giolito and their young pitchers have no interest in an extension.
