Tony La Russa in the Hall of Fame?

Three-time World Series champion manager Tony La Russa will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday, albeit with some of the same criticisms and questions that surrounded the Hall of Fame campaign of his most prodigious player, Mark McGwire.

There is no debating that La Russa perfected the art of managing in leading three different teams to World Series titles (the A's in 1989, Cardinals in 2006 and 2011) while racking up 2,728 wins, the third-most all time. But 43 percent of those wins came via the likely chemically induced home run output of McGwire -- the same McGwire who has been denied entry into the Hall of Fame by voters who feel his accomplishments are tainted.

La Russa has said he believes steroid-tainted players should be in the Hall of Fame, but with an asterisk, and that managers should perhaps have the same fate. Do you agree?

Should the fact that Tony La Russa achieved 43% of his 2,728 wins as a manager with admitted steroid user Mark McGwire affect his Hall of Fame credentials negatively?

  • Tony La Russa says "I know 100 percent that our program was absolutely clean for everything that we could control" in regard to his time managing the A's and Cardinals. Do you believe him?
