Dusty Baker is out as Cincinnati Reds manager as of today, but Reds general manager Walt Jocketty apparently won’t be hiring old friend Tony La Russa as his new manager.

La Russa worked for Jocketty for 12 of the 16 seasons he managed the Cardinals before Jocketty left the organization. But contacted by the Post-Dispatch as he was changing planes this morning, La Russa said, "I’m not managing any more.

"Walt has had more than enough of me," said La Russa, who has worked on special projects for the commissioner’s office for the last two years and has been seeking a front-office-type job as his next move in baseball.

La Russa turned 69 today.
