Breaking news: Torre to Dodgers

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Oct 29, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Journal News is reporting that Joe Torre will be hired as manager of the Dodgers. The announcement could come as soon as the next or two once a buyout of Grady Little is completed.

Don Mattingly is in line to join his staff. Torre also is interested in Kevin Long. I suspect Long will stay with the Yankees, but he is in demand.

UPDATE, 12:15 a.m.: The Times is reporting the story as well.

It has sure been a quite a few weeks in baseball. The job makes sense for Torre. He’s closer to his home in Hawaii and he knows Southern California from his time as an announcer for the Angels. It also makes sense for Don Mattingly given that his son, Preston, is in the Los Angeles organization.

If the Rockies made the World Series, how far away can the Dodgers be?

Here’s hoping Clint Hurdle names Torre to the coaching staff for the All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium next season.

UPDATE, 2:44 p.m.: Here is the story for Tuesday’s newspaper.
