09:12 AM ET 10.13 | Tony La Russa isn't coming out of retirement to manage the Reds or any other team. "The managing thing is over," the 69-year-old La Russa told The Post Saturday. La Russa, who retired after winning the 2011 World Series with the Cardinals, said nothing has changed since he walked away. A three-time World Series champion manager, La Russa said he is in regular contact with Reds general manager Walt Jocketty but probably "has had more than enough of me" after La Russa managed for Jocketty in Oakland and St. Louis.

Time To Fade Away, Bro.

They will still link you with every open spot or troubled manager in the league. They don't seem to realize it bores people to tears when they keep trotting out the same nonsensical stories over and over and over.

TLR is not the one keeping his name in the news/rumors, Bro.

Managing a MLB team at 70 could be a drag, trying to relate to guys 40+/- years younger.
Stay home and go golfing/fishing.

You're right. I couldn't do it

From the time Walt went to Cincinnati, I always had a fear of TLR eventually managing there. I'd hate to have to root so hard against him.
