Joe Torre still has a sense of humor as this story indicates.
But whether he has a job with the Yankees won’t be decided until Tuesday when the Steinbrenners and their advisors meet in Tampa.
I’ve yet to learn a reason for the delay, but clearly this is a slow process. You have to wonder what is going on behind the scenes. It’s reasonable to assume that Torre has at least some chance of coming back, especially if he is willing to take a cut from the $7.5 million he made this season.
But I still get the sense that within a week, Don Mattingly will be the new manager.
