I'm not sure there is anyone more fit for the Yankees job than Torre at the moment, and I'm not sure that everyone with "sense" would have the same success as him in managing the Yankees.Cleveland Steamers wrote:dannyolbb wrote:It seems to me that if you run out a lineup like the one the Yankees have, you could have Jose Canseco in your rotation and you'd still win 90 games.
Sure, maybe the "worst" label was too much, but it's not nearly as ridiculous as saying he was one of the top 3 in the league this year.
Just off the top of my head, here is a list of managers who did a better job than Torre this year:
Completely agree with the above. Im pretty sure anyone with sense could manage the Yankees. The ultimate manager for the Yankees? How bout a guy with some baseball knowledge and a master in psychology because it seems that the Yankee manager needs to deal with meshing ego's rather than baseball.
Torre did a good job of helping with egos, but definitely nothing too special with actual managing. Maybe he should win Best Counselor award, but not a chance at Best Manager.
