    LaRussa joins the Angels

    No he didnít die. He got hired by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in basically the same capacity he worked in Boston

    So basically, instead of not knowing what he does for the Red Sox, we'll not know what he does for the Angels.

    Larussa is like a bad case of herpies!

    Fortunately it is the angels GM (and not ďhang em ChiamĒ) standing next to jeter at the pharmacy waiting to pick up the latest prescription of ointment and penicillin!

    Well, yeah. First step in the hiring process is needing a new job...

    ...and maybe he keeps needing a job because he doesn't actually do anything of value, but he keeps getting the next job out of name recognition.

    Well, we don't really know he brings nothing to the table, either. We know jack squat.

    True. After all, it was a pot luck dinner.

    I really doubt the 75 year old LaRussa ďneedsĒ to keep working. Heís a lawyer with nearly half a century of experience in various MLB roles. Thereís going to be food on the table for the rest of his life. I just think he wants to stay involved in MLB and has the name and prolonged history to make it happen. He must bring something to the table at this point.

    But yeah, being Tony LaRussa definitely helps a lot...
