Dodgers manager Joe Torre told MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick that he remains uncertain about his future and doesn’t expect to seek out a new managerial job after the season when his contract expires.
"I refuse to say absolutely,” Torre said. “But I have to say it's very, very remote that ever happens. I certainly don't anticipate, at age 70, searching around for another managing job."
Ken Rosenthal recently reported that Torre’s friends aren’t sure he would continue managing the Dodgers if their ownership situation doesn’t become settled, but Torre bristled at that suggestion. Torre said in February that he was discussing an extension that would keep him in Dodger Blue through 2011. The sides considered a front office role for Torre, who turns 70 this summer.
Torre has a 2260-1932 record in 29 seasons as a big league manager to go along with four World Series titles. His Dodgers are now 14-17, in fourth place in the NL West.
