So we’ve all heard by now. Following this Almost Lost Weekend, George has summoned the “advisors” to his Florida HQ to review options for improving our beloved Pinstripers. What’s encouraging here is that there seems to be some realism that the troops available to Joe Torre, despite what they’re being paid, are not up to snuff, and the problem isn’t one of “motivation” or “wanting to win.” Our guess, despite some of the whispering in the press here, is that both Joe and cash are safe. If Mel Stottlemyre goes, well, that’s hardly the end of the world (the Replacement Level Yankee Weblog has been after him for some time). Moreover, it appears something will be done to address the Yankee outfield problem. Our hope is that Cash and the Stick will be heard out at this meeting. Hope springs eternal. Even in Tampa.
