When Derek Jeter was hit on a hand by a Daniel Cabrera pitch May 20, Torre was watching on television at Dodger Stadium. He picked up the phone and immediately telephoned his old clubhouse back in the Bronx.
â€œIt sounded ugly,â€ Torre said. â€œI called the training room just to see how he was. He got on the phone and said he was OK.â€
Clearly Torre is fraternizing with opposing players and should be suspended immediately.
Joe is in town this weekend to face the Mets. I was going to stop in and pay my respects but it takes way more than that to make going to Shea Stadium worth the hassle and possible rat attacks.
