Tony LaRussa released Pete Mackanin and now could replace him.

Of course, growing up on the South Side and attending Brother Rice meant he idolized the White Sox. He wound up in spring training with his beloved White Sox in 1982. "Tony La Russa was the manager and Roland Hemond was the general manager," he said. "They released me. And they made a trade for Vance Law. That was the end of my major-league chances."
