Our most hearfelt congratulations and appreciation to Joe Torre, who notched win one thousand as Yankee skipper this afternoon. An extraordinary accomplishment by just about any measure, but especially considering his employer. Joe takes his lumps, and with some justification, as an in-game tactician and for his personnel usage, but when it comes to the difficult business of actually running a living-and-breathing team, there’s no one better. We’re grateful for what he’s meant to our Yankees, and for the example he’s set within baseball and in New York. Thanks Joe. Many more.
