Is no news good news for Torre?

It’s always amusing to me when team executives act like they’re determining the course of the free world.

That was the case in Tampa today as the Yankees played cloak-and-dagger with the media and then refused comment as to what happened. There were literally black cars with grim-faced men behind the wheel zooming past reporters.

We’re talking about who is going to manage a baseball team next season. I understand this is big business. But it’s baseball, not life and death. If the Joint Chiefs of Staff want to keep their feelings private, that’s OK. Not the people who run a baseball team.

Enough ranting.

Meanwhile, I have no idea yet what happened today. But if they were going to get rid of Joe Torre, wouldn’t they have done that by now? If they let Torre go tomorrow, it amounts to unprofessional behavior on their part. Why would you treat one of your best, most loyal employees that way?
