SONOMA, Calif. (AP) - Tony La Russa is already thinking about which players he might add to the National League roster for next month's All-Star game.
La Russa retired after leading St. Louis to the World Series title last year. But Commissioner Bud Selig announced in January that La Russa would become the second retired manager to lead a team in the Midsummer Classic.
La Russa says he has spent a lot of time thinking about the NL roster for the July 10 game in Kansas City. When asked if Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey or Giants ace Matt Cain would get the start, La Russa also added Cardinals pitchers Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn into the mix.
La Russa made his remarks before Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup stop in Sonoma, Calif.
