    Maybe once you reach the 200 million dollar payroll mark and employ a sweaty douchechunk like Juicin' Giambi.

    Very pleased.

    I dislike Grady even more than Tracy, and I didn't think that was possible!

    Torre once hit A-Rod 8th, so I doubt he'd have a problem putting Ethier, Nomar, Kent or anyone else in the 8 spot!

    But unlike Grittle, Torre won't bench players like Kemp or Ethier after they have a great game. He won't pinch run for key offensive hitters in the middle innings. He won't pinch hit Ramon Martinez for James Loney in a key situation.

    I'm certainly looking forward to this next season.

    Well, it sounds like the guys are excited but this is definitely one area that is of concern to me.

    Dodgers.com

    "The track record speaks for itself," he said. "I hope he gets us back to the playoffs. This speaks volumes about what the team is willing to do to win. I talked to [former Yankee] Scott Proctor today. He said to be ready to pitch a lot. He [Torre] likes to use the bullpen. That's fine with me."
