Torre love fest is over
Enough is enough with the Joe Torre praise. I for one am glad he is leaving and I would offer to take him to the airport to make certain he did leave. Before you start calling this guy a Hall of Famer, here are the facts: Take away his Yankee years (where he had unlimited funds and unlimited talent), he is a sub-.500 manager. He has never taken a team not called the Yankees to the World Series. Joe Girardi won a title with the same team Torre couldn’t during his last seven years as a manager. He is the only manager in the history of baseball to have a 3-0 lead in a playoff series and lose. If it weren’t for Manny Ramirez in 2008, the Dodgers would not have made the playoffs. In 2009, they took advantage of a division that was pretty bad. This season was a total disaster. Isn’t it a manager’s job to motivate and make correct decisions? The fact is, he should’ve been fired. Joe Torre stole money this year and he is the most overrated manager in baseball today.
