Tony La Russa and Walt Jocketty may have had a long and successful run together in St. Louis but don't expect a reunion in Cincinnati even with the Reds having a managerial opening in the wake Dusty Baker's firing. La Russa attending Game 1 of the AL Division Series between the Tigers and Athletics here Friday night told CBSSports.com that he has no interest in managing again. “Walt's had more than enough of me” said La Russa who celebrated his 69th birthday Friday. “In fact I talked to him today and told him that and he said ‘You're right. I agree.'” As Cardinals' general manager from 1994 through 2007 Jocketty brought La Russa to St. Louis in 1996 and the duo teamed to lead the organization to a World Series title in '06 two NL pennants ('04 and '06) and seven division titles. If La Russa leaves his current post as a special consultant to Commissioner Bud Selig for another job in baseball it will be as an executive running a ballclub but not in the dugout.
