That is what Joe Torre had to say about returning to manage next season. Okay, so it is not quite as stirring of a sound byte as Patton’s promise to the Phillipines (edit: gerbil, you are an idiot. Signed, future gerbil), but Torre’s quote in a story by George King in the NY Post has a ring to it, especially since "a ring to it" may be exactly what it would take despite Steinbrenner’s assurances at the start of spring training. Cashman says Torre will have to wait until after the season, just like Mo, Jorge, and in theory, ARod. How well must the Yankees do in ’07 for Joe to keep his job from your perspective? From Stein’s? Maybe it will be holding on too long, but I think I would like to see Torre manage the Yankees through their move across the street.
