Most team,s if they are down 6-0 in the 5th innings, just waste their worst 2 bullpen pitchers for the last 5 innnings and call it a day. Thing is, with the Yankkes, that game's not close to over yet, so why give up runs. Keep it 6-0 and hope your lineup can scratch out a bunch......

Yep, Joe plays to win every game. It's nice, but not if it means ruining the bullpen by May.

I've heard rumors for the past couple years, every time the Yankees lose a few games, Torre's job is in jeoperdy. I think he keeps his job.
