Column: Tony La Russa hiring proves Jerry Reinsdorf is still the boss of the Chicago White Sox

Maybe it was a bad marriage or a poor career choice or buying a house that has been nothing but a hassle since the day you moved in.

People do it all the time. We divorce, we change jobs and we sell houses at a loss just to end one chapter in our lives and start over.

So you can’t really blame Chicago White Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf for trying to make amends for what he has called the biggest regret of his baseball life, allowing general manager Ken “Hawk” Harrelson to fire manager Tony La Russa in summer 1986.
