Tony La Russa Sounds Vaguely Committed To 2011

La Russa said Friday his attitude about managing this team is unchanged from a year ago. He did not dispute a suggestion that barring dissatisfied ownership or a player coup he is likely to commit through at least 2011.

La Russa hasn't earned himself any brownie points with his strange decisions this year—he's briefly alienated Colby Rasmus and forced Aaron Miles into a lineup that doesn't fit his, ah, skillset, among other things. But I remain in favor of the Hall of Fame managerial devil I know, compared to all the devils I don't.
