The Yankees have done something I didn’t think was possible.
They’ve become boring.
On the tedious meter, they’ve hit 11. It has now been nine days since the season ended and they still can’t make a decision about the manager. Pamela Anderson has had shorter marriages.
“We’re in a position right now, we’re having a dialogue with all relevant parties,” Brian Cashman said. “All I can tell you is when we come to a decision and a conclusion, then we’ll share it with you. Other than that, as long as it takes, as long as we have the Yankee interest in heart and what’s best for us as we go forward, that’s the right call, whatever it’s going to be.”
That’s fine. They certainly have every right to take as long as they want. If Joe Torre doesn’t like it, I suppose he can quit. He won’t, of course.
In the meantime, it’s a snoozefest.
For the record, it sounds like they have not shut the door on Torre. As to how long it will take to reach a conclusion, I have no idea.
