Joe Torre told reporters in San Francisco tonight that he texted Derek Jeter to congratulate him for breaking the Yankees hits record.

“I communicated with him. I didn’t call him,” Torre said. “I heard back. I texted him. That’s his favorite thing. I’ve got to get into that young stuff.

“He’s a special kid. The person he is, to me, means a great deal. That’s really something to be proud of, the respect he has for the game and his teammates. He’s a leader but not that ‘rah, rah.’ He’s a lot of things in that clubhouse. His consistency, if you’re a manager, you count on (it). … Just the tenacity, the determination. He’s not afraid to win.”

A Dodgers-Yankees World Series would something to see, wouldn’t it?
