Column: Tony La Russa’s hiring was already unpopular with fans. But his DUI arrest — and the team’s prior knowledge of it — destroys any good vibes the Chicago White Sox had.

Column: Tony La Russa’s hiring was already unpopular with fans. But his DUI arrest — and the team’s prior knowledge of it — destroys any good vibes the Chicago White Sox had.
