Breaking news within the last hour..
This is unconfirmed, of course. If this turns out to be true, I’ll delve deeper into my thoughts on how Torre would do as manager of the Blue, but I just wanted to get this up as soon as possible.
And might I say? WOW. I honestly never gave this a shot in hell of happening. Maybe the Girardi rumors were actually accurate about him being bench coach if he didn’t get the Yankees job – except he wouldn’t be bench coach for Griddle, he’d be bench coach for Torre.
The link also states that Don Mattingly, who just quit the Yankees after not getting the manager gig, would come with. Growing up in NJ in the 80s, despite not being a Yankees fan, I was always a HUGE Mattingly fan. How could you not be? Talk about playing the game the right way. Plus, if you don’t know, LA drafted his son Preston in the first round last year. Sure, Preston sucked in the minors in his debut. But still.
More to come. Including whether this rumor is BS or not. But still. Whoa.
