Breaking News: Torre out per NY Daily News


I do NOT live in NYC, so I have no idea of the validity of this article, but here it is. ESPN is also reporting Sweet Lou Pinella will replace him..

Damn..thats harsh. A winning season and the playoffs every year and your ass is still gone..ain't that some shit...

13 people gave us their .02 cents:

You know what's gonna happen now, dontcha? ESPN, FOX et al will spend 99.9% of their baseball talk on this, just like last night. As much as I loathe Steve Lyons, he was the one person yesterday that was continually giving the Tigers their due, while Brennaman kept pumping up the Yankees. And last night on BBTN, it was all about A-Rod and his failures.

dusty said...

Yeah, its like a slow news day and they run this shit into the ground B..like TO, Bonds, A-Rod..My eyes glaze over after the first 5 friggin minutes.

Al Swearengen said...

The problem with the Yankees is they're cheap as hell...never willing to outspend the competition.

Torre, Cashman and AROD should be gone...Detroit crops Verlander, Bonderman and picks up Rogers (someone the Yanks wouldn't sniff at), and here Cashman is collecting baseball cards...result is a poor defensive team, 50 million wasted on arms that suck or don't work at all, and the morale of a young trust-fund event once the coke is all used up.

I hope Girardi gets a good job. The Cubbies aren't a good club. The owners refuse to deal with the realities of the modern day club. There is talk that Joe will be going to the Cubs but I think the Yanks might be a good fit for him. Lou Pinella has the emotional makeup to run the yanks the way Steinbrenner thinks they should be run. To him, players are employees and in reality thats what they are. Very well paid ones that play a child's game.

Detroit acted like they won pennant or the series, I was happy for them.

But then I watched the Dodger game.

dusty said...

To them it was just as good..it was great John.

Sorry for your loss..Pads just got their ass's handed to them. But at least we were not swept :p

Bruce said...

Sorry babe...I love Woody, but I love the Cards more. ;)

My prediction for the NLCS: Mutts in 6

dusty said...

B..kma dear ;p

The Dbacks won a World Series with two great pitchers..you only have one. I don't see you making it through a 7 game series with just your Cy Young pitcher.

black dog said...

so sorry for you.

dusty said...

For who John?

Bruce said...

That's why I said Mutts in 6...
