    Watch live: Cardinals manager Tony La Russa retiring

    Guy was one of the best managers I ever saw. I can't blame him for hanging them up......I don't think he can beat his last act as manager

    I hope they hire Terry Francona and he shoves it up the Sox's ass by winning in St. louis.

    Classy move. He's the only MLB manager that has retired after winning a World Series.
