I can't believe this is happening. 

Wouldn’t it be something if Hahn is no longer around and Kenny jumps back into the GM position?  Pure speculation, nothing rumored.

What if it’s the other way and JR said the job is his if he wants and he TLR finally agreed to it?

Well yeah, that's my operating assumption at this point, I was just saying what I was hoping was happening since so many people not really in the org are telling anyone that will listen that he took the job.

Ugh. I sincerely hope all of this La Russa speculation is wrong. My offseason hype has sunk to an all time low because of this.

My question is if TLR is hired.... who replaces him in 2 years once he retires???

Jirschele is my guess

Rick Hahn's press conference, October 30th:

People said we'd never hire a manager with previous experience, well we just hired the most experienced manager living. We're doing things differently here.

You have the pick of the litter and you're gonna hire a retread who has been out of the business a decade? Seriously?

Nothing has been leaked or officially announced yet. Just some talk maybe from TLR with his buddies. This is a process. I wouldn’t take too much stock into this just yet.

Hearing similar to you bmags.  Tony’s old buddies around town have big mouths.

Here in Saint Louis too it appears.  Like bmags said, they can be wrong and hopefully they area, maybe everyone is just playing games but ya this isn't looking good.

Kenny Williams has no desire to do the General Manager job again.

I don't want LaRussa, but I'm also surprised by the intensity and near-unanimity of the anti-TLR sentiment here and among fans I know.  I would think he'd have more supporters just based on track record alone.

He seems to have his eyes set on being the President of an organization versus a GM.

Sox are hiring La Russa and are also hiring Bruce Levine to take over their official Twitter account. Great day for the South Side.

Its because the belief that he is being hired based solely because he’s Jerry’s buddy and hasn’t the managed a modern team. It goes against everything the Hahn went out and said when they let go of Renteria. It’s Jerry dictating the team and it’s revolting.

It seems like so many of the things we’ve come to dislike about how this organization operates all rolled into one.

Great!  Levine's first post can be to announce LaRussa's hiring two days after the press conference.
