Look at the players that have thrived under his leadership: O'Neill, Brosius, Miguel Cairo, to name just a few. He has kept supersatrs like Jeter, Posada, B. Williams, Sheffield, A-Rod all going in the same direction.
Most of the years the Red Sox have been as talented as the Yankees and look what happens. Sure, the money Steinbrenner throws around has an incredibly huge impact, but I don't think the Yankees have as much success under someone else. Torre has an incredibly great knack for reading, understanding, and getting the most out of his players.

It is pure ignorance to suggest anyone could have got the same results as Torre, given the abundance of talent the Yankees have had at their disposal.
Larry Bowra is a great example of that to the other extreme.
