The 10 traveling beat writers (8 papers, MLB.com and Sweeny Murti of WFAN) met with Joe Torre for about 12 minutes in his office.
The manager seemed relaxed as he was watching the Rockies-Phillies game.
A few highlights:
He would not reveal the Game 4 starter but said that Phil Hughes would be available in the bullpen tonight in long relief. So, yes, it’s Mike Mussina unless Chien-Ming Wang goes on short rest. … Torre spoke to George Steinbrenner yesterday. Big Stein will be in New York for Game 3. … Jason Giambi will be coming off the bench. He wants to keep Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui in the lineup and you get the feeling they don’t want to mess with Giambi playing first.
Here’s some audio. This is good, behind-the-scenes stuff if you’re a Yankees fan.
