    New York post is a little more credible.

    I'm liking this...

    "Third-base coach Larry Bowa and Don Mattingly are expected to join Torre in L.A. Hitting coach Kevin Long is staying with the Yankees and is close to signing a three-year deal worth nearly $1M. There are whispers Jose Cardenal, a coach under Torre in the early Yankees years, will be part of Torre’s staff. Current Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt is a candidate to remain."

    Looks promising!

    Okay. "Club Officials" saying a deal is imminent. Discussions include Torre having a say in player personnel.

    Thank God. After most of the moves Colletti made busted last season I want a proven winner like Torre having some veto power.

    Hehe, this morning on ESPN 2's morning show they interviewed Tommy Lasorda. They asked him what he knew about Torre coming to La and he said he didn't know anything since we was doing seminars. But then the lady asked him what Italian restaurant he'd take Torre to in La and he said it didn't matter, him and Torre would good friends and that he is happy he's coming to LA and he'll be a big presence in the organ-eye-zation. Wonder if Tommy slipped, isn't really part of the day-to-day operations, or maybe the age?

    Not sure if it's from the same interview but I just heard him slip and say just about the same thing on ESPN 710. He basically said that he's proud of Torre and he can't wait to have him with the club, yada yada yada...

    "Club Officials" full of ****. Colletti saying nothing close.

    http://losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/ne...t=.jsp&c_id=la

    The conspiracy theorists among us would probably say that they're just covering for the whole "minority consideration" thing the MLB requires.

    The list has to be short. Who's available besides Torre that has previous successful major-league management experience, minority or otherwise? Alou? Robinson? There's others I'm not thinking of

    At any rate, start dealing with the #1 choice and work from there. Problem is, that's just what happened after the 2005 season. What'd we wind up? Fifth choice? Sixth? The guy who said he'd do it because no one else would?

    This time, if we don't land the first choice, the backlash for McCourt and Colletti could very well be huge, primarily because of the speculation that's gone on over the last five days. A long, drawn-out managerial search will send a bad message to any potential free agents the Dodgers would like to pursue. It will send a bad message to current players. It will end up pissing off Dodger fans.

    I imagine that Colletti's statements are merely double-talk to make things sound kosher with MLB rules, and I hope that we do hire Torre and let him choose his own coaching staff and give him a say in player personell.

    'Cuz if we don't...

    From Tony Jackson...
    Camille Johnston, the Dodgers' senior vice president for communications, confirmed that a request by Dodgers owner Frank McCourt to commissioner Bud Selig that Selig exempt the club from his longstanding edict that minority candidates must be interviewed for high-profile positions has been granted.
    Selig's approval, according to a New York Times report, was based on two factors: that the Dodgers already have enough high-ranking minorities in their front office to put them at the forefront of the industry when it comes to diversity; and that it is so obvious Torre is the club's choice as manager that to interview minority candidates just to satisfy Selig's mandate would be a waste of those candidates' time.
    Tony Jackson's Blog

    If the league is allowing the doyers to circumvent the 'interview at least one minority' rule, it seems like another positive sign in the Torre saga.
