SI.com - Writers - Jon Heyman: Herzog eyes a brief comeback - Friday August 4, 2006 2:06PM (757 words)
Whitey Herzog won three pennants and a World Series title with the Cardinals, but he hasn't managed since 1990.
Herzog is very much alive and kicking at nearly 75, and judging by the short phone conversation he dominated on Thursday, he is as sharp and ready as ever to manage a big league team.
Herzog said he received "five of six offers'' the first 10 years after being replaced as Cardinals manager in 1990 by Red Schoendienst and eventually Joe Torre (Herzog accepted one, to run the Angels' front office) but not one offer in the last three or four.
