Sad column from Harvey Araton in The Times on the Yankees’ manager, Joe Torre, who, it’s expected, is going to be fired after the Yankees lost in the first round of the playoffs. (Perfect photo to accompany the column.)
The Yankees lost to the Indians because they were both out-hit and out-pitched. They were not out-managed. Before Torre took the helm, the last time the Yankees made it to the World Series was 1981, and the last time they won it was 1978. It says here that firing Torre is a mistake.
