    Default Joe Torre, we hardly knew ye!

    After 12 seasons and 12 post seasons, it looks as if the Yanks will can Torre. Its a shame but in reality, Torre hasn't delivered anything since beating the Mets in 2000. Whether you want to blame Cashman, Steinbrenner or the players, ultimately the manager has to accept some responsibility. When you have the largest payroll for those 7 years and you haven't been winning a title, the axe needs to fall. What do you think his legacy will be? Tactical genius? Cool head? Overrated?

    Now for us arm chair pundits, who becomes the next manager for the Yanks? Id like to see Don Mattingly, but that of course means he'll have to shave his sideburns.

    Whoever is responsible for putting together the Zimmer-frame brigade of pitchers that the Yanks have, should go. I know Joe has had the largest payroll to work with but im not sure that it is him who is responsible for the payroll, or some of the bonehead deals that have been made.

    Ivan is on the mark. Pitching, pitching, pitching. They don't have the veteran depth and their young pitchers are still not there. The Yankees are going to be great again and soon with the kids that Cashman has held onto but George will need a scapegoat and that will be Joe. He is truly one of the greatest managers MLB has ever seen.

    Torre is the only reason I didn't hate the Yankees as much as I normally do (since I have been a lifelong Red Sox fan). Joe is a class act that lent credibility to that organization. It will be a sad day to see him go but at least I can go back to hating the Yankees.

    I wouldn't mind Torre managing the Dodgers over Little...

    I'd also wouldn't mind having Girardi manage...

    Would rather have Girardi over MAttingly as manager. The real problem is Cashman. Need a GM that can bring in and retain good pitchers not has beens and injury prone players.

    Nothing official has happend yet but during the post game press conference, Torre seemed to know that his career as a Yankee was over.

    Giradi seems like the ready made replacement.

    Also, for clarification, Joe Torre is not dead.

    Just wanted to put that out there...
    Have you ever guessed somebody's gender wrong? There's no recovering from that. You just gotta move on, cause you ain't wriggling outta nothin'.
