me Sunday night, it was quite interesting that Joe Torre was not mentioned.  You know, the Joe Torre that won them 4 World Series Championships in 6 appearances in his role as manager.  You know, the Joe Torre that made sure they made the playoffs for the past 14 seasons. You know, the Joe Torre where they got off to horrible starts and still guided them to the playoffs?  You know, the Joe Torre who is now managing the Dodgers into the playoffs after you wanted him to take a pay cut?  Yea, that Joe Torre.

When Joe was manager, expections of anything less than a world series were called a failure.  Now, without him, with the same team in place, you could not get to the playoffs.  Pathetic.

The Yankees are one of the most storied franchises in sports of all time but the way that Joe was handled at the end of last season and his omission on Sunday was uncalled for.  Even Red Sox fans are surprised.  I bet they are sure glad that the Red Sox were the ones that eliminated you from playoff contention.

Next year, the real new era of the Yankees begin.  Let’s see if you are playing baseball in October at your new ballpark.-Dr.FB
