I spoke to some people who were covering the game tonight. Kyle Farnsworth refused to speak to the media about his actions after being taken out of the game.
Joe Torre said it would be handled in house and said no pitcher should be upset about being replaced by Mariano Rivera.
Regardless of what you think of Torre as a manager, he was an All-Star player and has four rings as a manager. No player should show him up, least of all a guy like Farnsworth.
In recent weeks, Torre has been asked several times why he continues to trust Farnsworth in the 8th inning. He has defended him every time. This is the thanks he gets?
Taking on Torre is not a fight Farnsworth wants. Joe may be beaten up, but he’s got all the heavyweights on the team in his corner.
I’d be surprised if Farnsworth was a Yankee on July 31. There’s a reason he’s been on four teams since 2004 and we’re seeing it.
