ST. LOUIS -- If the

Dodgers

don’t retain

Don Mattingly

as their manager next season, could they replace him with

Tony La Russa

?

It doesn’t sound like it, based on what La Russa said Saturday at a news conference before Game 2 of the

.

La Russa admitted Saturday that he missed parts of managing.

“If I could only manage October, I would be back every year,” he said. “This is so much fun. But I don’t miss the managing. I miss winning and losing. There’s a big difference.”

Would he be open to managing again?

“In October only,” he said.

La Russa retired immediately after the

St. Louis Cardinals

won the 2011

World Series

and has since expressed no interest in returning to the dugout.
