    Not the usual tabloid/anonymous sources stuff...direct quotes from George.

    Yep, sounds like King George has ruled from the throne. Win or else, Joe.

    Love the quote on Froemming:

    "He won't umpire our games anymore".

    As if the senile blowhard had anything to do with Fatboy's retirement.

    Go back into hiding, George.

    Torre is far from a great game manager, but he deserves better than you.

    George wants Mattingly to suceed Torre, or am I wrong?

    if i'm torre, i don't need this grief. i announce today that i'm quitting after this postseason. takes the focus off of my players and puts it on me.
  10. Joe Torre has no one to blame but himself for the position he's in tonight. He sat idly by the chair while George forced Cashman to buy Giambi, Mussina, Clemens, Pettitte, Abreu and Damon.

    I will continue to call out the lack of leadership by Derek Jeter during this title-less run for the Yankees. It is the same thing for Jeter, year after year. He'll play hard, smile for the cameras, and barely say a critical word of anyone.

    Nicely played o bitter one

    Torre has no one to blame but himself for how the teams have performed? Wow. I think that shows a decided lack of perspective. He can blame himself for continuing to come back year after year, thus subjecting himself to all the crap that goes with this particular job, but I'm at a loss to find any significant fault with the job he's done.
  12. Novelist - Torre can't manage a bullpen that's one fault for you to mark down on the list.
