Tony LaRussa's coming back to my beloved St. Louis Cardinals. So end the Joe Torre-back-to-the-Cards-LaRussa-to-the-Yankees-talk. The Cards fired Torre as manager in 1995. LaRussa took over. Torre went to the Yankees. The rest is history.
Rudy Giuliani told me during his recent stop here that if Torre didn't go back to the Yankees, he would only manage in St. Louis. Looks like neither thing will happen now.
