TLR isn't leaving after that. He's got at least another year in him.
I heard a rumor that he was going to announce his retirement during the Cubs series in August but the Cards just kept winning.

I think he will still be eligible at 2B next year. He had 8 starts and only needs 5 starts to be eligible.

Stopping in to say congrats to STL and their fans. Really dislike La Russa and I'm not a Carpenter fan but besides that I have no reason to be upset at STL winning. Real happy for Berkman especially.

5 starts to gain elig. but don't you need 10 to keep it for the following yr?

ive always wondered why MLB teams dont take a managing/coaching approach more similar to lots of pro soccer clubs.
professional soccer clubs often take the approach of employing a manager who is good with personnel decisions and motivation, and coaches who are experienced tacticians that can help make in game adjustments.

its clear that there are very very few people capable of being both a master tactician AND a great personnel manager. joe maddon is the only guy i can think of in mlb off the top of my head.

perhaps its the next MLB market inefficiency to be exploited?

The difference is that baseball shouldn't be that complicated. Both forms of football are tactical battles where it makes sense to have specialist coaches.
