Joe Torre told a funny story yesterday. After the season ended last fall, he attended a soccer game to watch his 11-year-old daughter.
One of the players on the other team – and now keep in mind it was an 11-year-old girl – came up to Torre and asked him why he hit Alex Rodriguez No. 8 in Game 4 against Detroit.
That’s why managing in New York, Boston and Philadelphia (to a lesser extent) is different than anywhere else.
