Jersey's Quick Take On Joe Torre

JerseySenior Analyst IJanuary 27, 2009

I wasn't going to, because everyone else already did, but I guess I may as well mention the whole Joe Torre book thing.

My take:

Torre is going to take a lot of flak for this. Yankees fans had always remained loyal, even though he left for LA. No more. And that really isn't a good move by Torre. I don't know why he would do this, and Peter Abraham seems to feel the Yankees won't retire his number now. I wouldn't be surprised. Why burn that bridge?

That said, I bet most of the book is positive, but to sell copies, only the controversial stuff was pre-released.
