Sox never had chance for La Russa
Tony La Russa might be managing the 2012 White Sox if not for one reason — if he returned to Chicago, he would have had to manage against his best friend in baseball, Jim Leyland. That wasn't going to happen, according to some who know La Russa best, and it would be interesting to know if La Russa's aversion to working across the field from Leyland and the Tigers extends into the front office.
