   ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Mark McGwire is coming back to the St. Louis Cardinals.
   The team said Monday that McGwire has agreed to a one-year deal after making his debut as the Cardinals hitting coach last season. Terms were not disclosed.
   The Cardinals also said pitching coach Dave Duncan has agreed to a two-year deal, with a mutual option for 2013. The 65-year-old Duncan has been in the Cardinals dugout with manager Tony La Russa for the past 15 seasons.
   La Russa reached a new one-year deal with the team last week.
   Besides McGwire, the team reached one-year deals with first-base coach Dave McKay, third-base coach Jose Oquendo and bench coach Joe Pettini.
