Joe Torre Rejoins MLB

Joe Torre has rejoined Major League Baseball as its executive VP of baseball operations, MLB announced on Twitter. The longtime player and manager had stepped down from his duties at the league office to join a group bidding for the Dodgers.

Joe Garagiola Jr., Kim Ng, and Peter Woodfork had assumed Torre's responsibilities at MLB while Torre was away. MLB said it would search for a replacement, but never found one. Torre joined MLB as executive VP for baseball operations last February.

    It must be nice to be able to leave a job for greener pastures and then when those pastures turn brown return to the same high paying job.

  2. As a Yankee fan, I never had any use for Torre …… he had the horses, so he won (most of the time)  One of the things I had against him, was the way he destroyed pitchers …… over & over out of the pen (Paul Quantrill, Scott Proctor, Tanyan Sturtze, et.)  Now add to that ……. the way he fiddled while Rome burned, during the 2004 playoffs.  Myself, i wish he would go home and put his feet up.

    Wait what? What has Torre done that’s so “bad for baseball?”

  5. That’s pretty much the problem: he hasn’t done anything. He was presented last season with no shortage of major issues that warranted serious review, and all he did was give token replies and return to his proposal to… make players on opposing teams not fraternize before games.

    He and Selig are out of date, out of touch, and pretty obviously disinterested in actually improving the game. Now that the new CBA is drafted, they’re just collecting paychecks and playing pinochle.

    Selig is the main problem. No guts, no leadership. But keep in mind that he works for the owners so if issues aren’t being addressed the buck stops with the owners not the commissioner.

    Yeah, I remember, but I’m still surprised. I figured the Dodgers bid was his last hurrah in baseball. Maybe 70 really is the new 60.
