In Jon Heyman's Notes today, we get a little update on the likelihood of La Russa/Duncan coming to Houston:
There are rumors that the Astros might try to hire the vaunted tandem of Tony La Russa and Dave Duncan (those rumors were even mentioned here once). However, Cardinals insiders say La Russa does love the history of the Cardinals and presumably isn't quite as upset as Duncan about the whole Chris Duncan situation. In a phone interview a couple weeks ago, Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt expressed some optimism that La Russa would be back.
We should also pump the brakes on the TLR to Cincinnati rumors, as Dusty Baker is still owed $3+ million.
