Enough is Enough Fire Torre

Postby acsguitar » Sat May 19, 2007 6:38 pm

He's gotta go...He has done great things for this team but right now its pathetic how poorly they are playing.

:-t

New spark maybee gets them back in the hunt. I love Joe and what he's done but there have been lots of dissapointments lately.

I think girardi or mattingly could do a great job

I like Joe but would have no problem if they replaced him. That said, I don't see how this would help. Mattingly is definitely next in line but there is nothing that I have seen that would indicate that he is ready and that he could do a better job.

espn article calling for the move
http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/st ... ortCat=mlb

i love joe torre and everything he has meant to the yanks over the last decade but i agree with the call to get someone with some spark in there. among many reasons, gone are the days of o'neill, brosius, leyritz, or anyone (take your pick) with that fire to win every second of every day. joe was a great manager when he didn't have to do the little things to get guys fired up every day to play Yankee baseball. everyone says "why should a guy getting 10-20 mil a year need someone to fire them up?" the obvious answer is they are complacent with their paychecks. i'm not so sure mattingly is the in-your face guy these players need either.

granted, the yanks are dealing with a ton of injuries to the pitching staff but there is no excuse for miserable play in the field and at the plate. the complacency is contageous. the slow and steady, nice guy routine is not working anymore in the bronx. lets face it, 10+ years is a long time for a manager to stick around and if you don't have the type of players that get themselves up for the games each and every day, and don't have the manager to light some fires, then its time for a change. this series with boston could be the end of the line for joe. it just might be time.

Joe's a great guy but he doesn't know what he's doing out there with the pitchers and the bullpen.

I don't think Mattingly would do any better and he has no real experience.


Girardi is my pick.

I don't have a problem with anyone who wants Torre,or Cashman for that matter, fired but my thing is this: Say you replace Torre with Mattingly or Girardi and things continue to spiral out of control,then what? Fire Mattingly or Girardi? IMO, For better or worse, Yanks are gonna have to ride this one out with the current management.

torre gets tossed! maybe that'll get this overpaid/underproducing team fired up. it helps they beat up on the red sox too. hopefully they get a little swagger...
