Thankfully I didn't have to listen to the Michael Kay Show for the latest in baseball gossip:
ESPN's Hall of Fame baseball analyst, a guest on Michael Kay's 1050-AM ESPN sports talk show in New York, came up with a nice sound bite that should be recycled over the next few days and create some kind of backlash during the upcoming NLCS.
Kay asked Gammons if he agreed that Joe Torre would only stay on as the Dodgers' manager through the 2010 season, when his contract ends.
"Yes, I do buy that," said Gammons.
"I wouldn't be surprised and I think…I think…a lot of things will probably come out here in the next few months but I think (Torre's) life with the Dodgers is pretty much a living hell."
"…There'll be a lot that comes out in time with Dodger ownership…"
Let's face it, we know what this is about:
Living hell=every second without Derek Jeter
Also, Gammo let it be known that the Sox will shop Jonathan Papelbon this winter.
So there's a good chance that Joe Torre will be managing the Dodgers well into the next decade and that Jon Papelbon will be closing out games for the Sox for the rest of your lifetime.
