Leyland on watching Cardinals: 'I was a wreck'

Posted on: October 8, 2011 7:46 pm
 
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony La Russa said he was more nervous watching the Tigers' Game 5 than his own.

Jim Leyland understands.

"I was a wreck," the Tigers manager said Saturday, about watching good friend La Russa's Cardinals in Game 5 Friday night against the Phillies. "I mean, it was 1-0. A walk and a home run, and that's it."

Leyland and La Russa have been close for decades, since La Russa chose Leyland to be his third-base coach with the White Sox in 1982. When Leyland took time off from managing after leaving the Rockies at the end of the 1999 season, he went to work for the Cardinals.

They talk frequently, and they pull hard for each other's team.

They met in the 2006 World Series, with La Russa's Cardinals coming out on top. Neither has been back to the World Series since, but now both are one series win away from returning.

The matchup isn't one that either of them looks forward to. It would be easier on both if they made it in separate years, because they know when they meet that one of them has to lose.

This week, though, there are no conflicts. You can be sure La Russa is pulling hard for the Tigers against the Rangers.

And you can be equally sure that Leyland wants the Cardinals to beat the Brewers.
