Former MLB manager Tony La Russa stopped by "SportsCenter" on Friday to talk about his upcoming gig as National League manager at the All-Star Game. He also showed off two of his three World Series championship rings and the vast difference in bling from then (1989 with the A's, pictured on right) to now (2011 with Cardinals, pictured on left). La Russa says it was the NBA and NFL that turned the tide from traditional to blingy. "The baseball players, when they kept seeing [NFL and NBA rings], they said ''More bling! More bling! More bling!" Which do you prefer?
