Don Mattingly on Joe Torre:

“Let me put it this way, and it’s really pretty simple for me. He deserves to be treated with respect. No matter what happens, no matter what the decision is, Joe Torre needs to be treated with respect.

“Anything less than that, to me, would be unacceptable. He deserves that. You don’t hear him talk bad about the organization; you don’t hear him talk bad about any members of it. You don’t hear nothing negative from Joe in those terms. He’s handled himself with class. He needs to be treated with respect. … He has demanded it in a sense by the way he’s treated everyone and the job that he did.”

Strong words from the bench coach, especially considering he’s a candidate for the job.
