La Russa laughs off Cubs rumors

La Russa laughs off Cubs rumors

PHILADELPHIA -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa had a laugh before Friday's game about reports out of Chicago that former Cardinals general manager Walt Jocketty (currently the Reds' GM) could wind up with the Cubs. Jocketty, in turn, would bring La Russa to Chicago, and the duo would lure Albert Pujols to the Cubs.

La Russa said he hadn't read the report, said it didn't matter and brushed the whole idea aside.

"What happens to me next year is not a disruption to our club," he said.
