Edit: Fixed the link. We all know that LaRussa has the reputation for being egotistical, and I'm sure he would drive much of the blogosphere bananas from time to time. We also know that he probably comes packaged with Dave Duncan. So humor me, LL, with this hypothetical scenario and question following it: Assume A) Tony LaRussa takes away 0 to 5 wins per season, B) Dave Duncan adds 0> wins to the team, and C) we have to deal with LaRussa's baggage. How do you feel about it? Good idea? Bad idea? Don't know? Uneasy? Put me in the uneasy camp. Second edit: Thanks to Poochie, I'm going to rephrase the question: Do you suspect that LaRussa+Duncan is a net positive?
