    One losing season is apparently all it takes after winning a World Series.

    Anyone think La Russa jumps as well? I'd have to say I think he's gone.

    My guess is the two of them will go somewhere together.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    So finally Ozzie Smith will embrace the Cardinals again?

    Of course not. ...

    This was a terrible decision by the Cardinals, and I'm loving every minute of it. [/Cubsfanboylooser]

    I don't know. Jocketty was there 13 years. That's an eternity in today's game. Although I think he's a terrific GM, change could be good. The team was a combined one game under .500 the past two seasons. It'll be interesting to see who gets the job.

    Brian Cashman if the Yankees get knocked out in the first round?

    They were one game under mostly because of this season. Last season: World Series Champs.

    He gave them a title, a year later they gave him the boot.

    Didn't they finish 82-80 in the regular season last year?

    They were a very good team until they slid in September. Then they came back to normal form in the postseason.

    They had a very unlucky season this year with injuries. How does a guy with a proven record of success get fired for one losing season after seven straight postseason appearences?

    Something smells here. I'm looking at CEO Bill DeWitt Jr.
