Add Tony La Russa to the list of old-school baseball guys who have chimed in on the ongoing controversy involving players from the so-called “Steroids Era” going into the Baseball Hall of Fame . La Russa told MLB Network Radio that players should be allowed in, but with asterisks on their plaques.

The name: Tony La Russa.

La Russa retired after leading the St. Louis Cardinals to the 2011 World Series championship. After his managerial career, he went to work as a president of baseball operations for the Arizona Diamondbacks and was a special assistant in the front office for the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels.

La Russa has declined several managerial opportunities in the past, but this job opening, well, has him quite intrigued.

La Russa, when contacted by USA TODAY Sports, confirmed he has rejected previous overtures, but declined to discuss the possibly of returning to Chicago.

This is where he started his managerial career in 1979 and led the White Sox to the AL West title four years later.

La Russa was the White Sox manager from midway through the 1979 season until the end of the 1986 season. La Russa , who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014, was not pleased with McDowell's comments. "My question is this: Was he ever on our team?" La Russa said via the San

Jerry Reinsdorf, the White Sox chairman, is one of La Russa's closest friends.

Reinsdorf, whose competitive juices flow as much as La Russa’s, is 84 years old and is desperate for another World Series title.

OPINION: Renteria's firing highlights cruelties, inequities toward MLB managers

There may not be another person or team in the world that La Russa would even consider returning to the dugout and the stress of managing than Reinsdorf and the White Sox.

He would love to be the man to give Reinsdorf that second World Series title.

Certainly, the White Sox will interview more people than La Russa, with former Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch sitting high atop their list. They have not shown interest inAlex Cora, who like Hinch, were suspended by Major League Baseball this past season for their roles in the 2017 Astros cheating scandal.

Former White Sox pitcher Jack McDowell, who never played for Tony La Russa , said a camera-aided sign-stealing system was set up by the Hall of Fame manager prior to his being fired, and There was that -- Tony La Russa is the one who put it in. He's still in the game making half a million, you know?

There’s no guarantee La Russa would definitely accept the job if offered.

Yet, during White Sox GM Rick Hahn’s press conference Monday announcing the firing of Renteria, he almost spelled out La Russa or Hinch’s name when talking about job qualifications.

“Ultimately, I think the best candidate or the ideal candidate,’’ Hahn said, “is going to be someone who has experience with a championship organization in recent years, recent October experience with a championship organization.’’

Yes, that’s Tony La Russa.

Or if there’s a change of heart, that’s Hinch.

The White Sox believe that either will take them to the next level, just as the Cubs did in 2015 when they also fired Renteria with a year on his contract, believing he wasn’t capable of bringing them a World Series. Joe Maddon accomplished the feat year later.

This time, the White Sox were baffled by Renteria’s bullpen management down the stretch, believing his moves cost them the AL Central title, and Game 3 in their wild-card loss to the Oakland A’s.

La Russa was considered a genius managing his bullpen over the years, and Hinch was also lauded for helping turn the Astros into a power. Hinch will have to carry the weight of his role in the cheating scandal, but he will be permitted to return to baseball after the World Series.

“I’m not going to talk about who’s on the list, who’s not on the list,’’ Hahn said, “with one exception (Ozzie Guillen). If word leaks out in two weeks that we sat down with person X, you don’t need to text me to try and get confirmation. I don’t think it’s appropriate to share whether anyone is a candidate for a job or not.’’

There’s no need for confirmation.

There’s a Hall of Famer sitting high atop of that list.

La Russa.
