I fear for the well-being of Broxton
Also, we'll see how good of a manager he really is since he won't have a star-studded roster like he did with the Yanks

Anyone know if A-Rod will be coming to the Dodgers?

Yanks have had a star-studded roster for years and years. No one's done what Torre has. Not in the Steinbrenner era anyway.

His first championship with the Yankees was not star-studded...

The thing I like most about his signing is that he's had a history of grooming young players into stars. Guys like Soriano, Robinson Cano, and Mariano Rivera were all once young players with the Yanks. Hopefully he can do similarly with the Dodgers' collection of young talen.

Conference call with Ned at 4:00 pacific (in about half an hour)

Good. Glad its official finally.
Now if Ned doesn't go out and land us a big bat of some kind this off-season, he's going to have some 'splainin' to do. With Torre's pull, we should have very little trouble attracting free agents.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

What would qualify the 2008 season as a success for Torre in your eyes? I know this is difficult to answer because we don't know what free agents will be signed but as an overall barometer, what makes it or breaks it for Torre?
Does he have to make the playoffs?
Does he have to win the NL West?
Or, does he just have to improve on last years record?
