I saw Tony La Russa's press conference on MLB Network this morning and he is coming back as the manager of the Cardinals next season. But the bigger news is that he is going to have Mark McGwire be the hitting coach.
McGwire did not attend the press conference but the media had a lot of questions about him. I wonder if this will be a distraction for the Cardinals? Maybe only in the begining of Spring Training. I also wonder if Holliday had anything to do with this or if this makes St. Louis a more interesting choice for Holliday to sign a multi-year deal with? LaRussa has always been a big supporter and fan of McGwire so it's unlikley Holliday had anything to do with it.
