    The knocks on LaRussa, as I see them, are that 1) he is often credited with inventing the modern bullpen, which many SABR types see as a bad move, and 2) he was the manager in Oakland when steroids took off. (And he has a pretty big head.)

    Did I miss any?

    So he’s a hugely important figure in the history of the game, but not really for good reasons.

    See, I think that's where he's headed now. These types of positions. Ya know, cuz he's ooooooooold! Like E5 Yaz.

    Yes, with the Diamondbacks, he hired Dave Stewart as GM. It did not go well, to put it mildly.
