Most in the organization want Torre to go.
Steiny could have done it with a bit more class but barring a WS Championship Torre was gone once his contract expired this year.

You shouldn't have to create special rules so your manager doesn't destroy the arm of one of your best prospects

It would be funny if Torre resigned today about 30 minutes before the game.

If I were Torre, I'd do that and then call a press conference to piss off Steiny.

game could have legitimately been delayed for a few mins if it was bothering both teams which I believe it was. It obviously significantly impacted play.

Torre could have gone out and argued and argued and stalled until he was kicked out and then kept arguing until the bug situation had clered if he felt that strongly about it.
He probably thought such a lengthy stall-tactic delay could have messed with Joba's psyche even more than the bugs though.
But it's definitely something to consider.
Just go have a meeting on the mound and tell Joba, "Hey, I'm going to stall for you until these bugs disappear somewhat. Don't freak out. Just think of it as a regular delay. i might get ejected here but I want to see if we can find a way to get through this bug nonsense."


I was at a minor-league game in Rockford, IL 15 yrs ago that was delayed for 15 mins because of bugs. It wwas pretty bizarre and disgusting.

No one mentioned the most important part of the story. Steinbrenner thinks A-Rod is staying.

There's a zero percect chance of that happening. No way does Arod want to deal with all the crap he gets in NY anymore.

Chicago would be a place I'd like to see him.

Iggy - LAD, LAA or maybe SD would be my guess.

Bob, I'd be so happy to see him here in SD. I might even have to buy a season ticket package if that's the case. He's been my fav player ever since he got drafted. I was big into collecting baseball cards and that year, I just adopted him as the young guy that I wanted to collect.

So far, I've only got to see him play live once. He at least hit a homerun [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

0% huh? Umm... no. He hasn't been getting a lot of crap this year. I'd say 60% he stays, 20% he goes to LAA and 20% he goes to Boston. No way does he go to a NL team. He will want to DH once in a while when he is 35+ years old. And if it's about the money, no one is outbidding NY if they want him back.

Arod please come to Oakland we don't have the monies but we have Jack Cust and then we'll sign Barry Bonds too and then we can run out this lineup next year

1. Buck CF
2. Swisher RF
3. Bonds DH
4. Arod SS
5. Cust LF
6. Barton 1B
7. Chavez 3B
8. Ellis 2B
9. Suzuki C

And then trade for a bunch of righthanded groudball pitchers because the left side defense is going to be abysmal.
Billy make this happen otherwise you are so fired. No one cares that you wrote Moneyball back in the day if you can't get guys who play the game the right way anymore.

As a gigantic SD homer, I have to say I would love to have him here ... but there's absolutely no chance of that happening. We're way too poor. I don't remember the last time we spent over $10m for a player.
