From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
(Tony) La Russa remained circumspect about whether he plans to stay with the team, saying only that he'll participate in today's organizational meeting at Busch Stadium before returning to Alamo, Calif., to decide his next step.
"I've never been this exhausted after a season," La Russa conceded earlier in the series. "This season has been relentless, absolutely relentless."
General manager Walt Jocketty was among those who predicted La Russa would return. "I think he wants to go home and think about things for a few days, but I expect him to be back," Jocketty said.
