Tony La Russa Doubts He’ll Get Mariners Job

Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa doesn't think he'll be selected as the Mariners' next president, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "It’s likely I won’t even get an interview," La Russa told fans at a Cardinals event today. "I’ve heard they’ve got a couple of good guys in house. I think it’s a wonderful opportunity and I would love to put my two cents in as to what contribution I could make. But I don’t think it’s going to happen."

The Mariners are looking for a new president to replace Chuck Armstrong, who is departing at the end of the month. A report last week indicated that the Mariners might consider La Russa if they expanded their search beyond in-house candidates, but it now appears likely that they'll hire their new executive from within.
