    Here's a great article by Ken Rosenthal why Torre to the Dodgers is a good thing.

    Don't worry, you'll still be my favorite Big Joe even if Torre does take the job.

    Ok now that this seems to be coming true I am really, really going to be happy if it does. I will forgive everything that McCourt has done (sorry shelling out the big bucks for one real season with all the other stuff he has done doesn't make up for anything). If he does pull poor Grady's chain and make the Torre/Mattingly hire I will be beyond happy. And setting the stage for Mattingly to replace him would be awesome.

    Different money pool?

    No matter how many "money pools" an organization has or which one the money for a manager comes from, it still costs the organization money to hire a manager. Expensive managers will undoubtedly influence the cost of tickets just a super-expensive players would.

    What Torre was getting in NY was "Steinbrenner-Like" money. That is, to say, it was an ABSURD price to be paying a manager.

    I'm not a complete hater of Joe Torre, but there are some significant issues with his style. First, I think he over-works his pitching. Second, he's not got a lot of experience managing without the DH (though I'm sure that's easy enough to get around). Third, what is his experience managing during a large-scale build-up of young talent?
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
