I bet he's got something up his sleeve come deadline time. Stottlemyre can do nothing about the pitching woes, these are established pitchers who are probably too egotistical about help. I miss the good ole days.

LiKe George is going to care if Torre gets upset after spending 200M for a .500 ballclub? What is Torre going to do, quit and lose all that money? Even if he does, all that means is George goes and gets a new manager for 06 to go along with a new GM and new coaching staff. I do not want to see Torre go, but his performace from 03 forward has been pretty lousy and if he insists on keeping guys that are not getting the job done (like Stottlemeyer) and wants to fall on his sword in protest, so be it.
Really does not matter though whether Stottlemeyer goes now or in October. As long as Cashman is not around to mess this team up even more come July. The more you watch them, the more you have to come to the conclusion that this team just is not pennant caliber and trying to put a baand-aid on the Titanic to plug a hole or two is not going to get it done and not in the long term interests of the team. There are just way to many gaping gashes.

Guys they could move if they decided to cut bait include Gordon, Sturtz, Sierra, Womack, Quantril. What you get for each obviously varies. Brown and Wright and Bernie and and Giambi are basically unmovable. They might have been able to eat all of Brown's contract and trade him to a NL contender if he was ealthy, but now forget it.
Brown and Bernie are gone after this season thankfully. As to Matsui, I would agree you could deal and re-sign, but from a PR perspective with all the Japanese media and money George makes, I can't see Matsui going anywhere even for 2 months.
