It was on this day in 1995 that the Yankees hired Joe Torre as their manager. Torre was something of a questionable hire at the time, given that he had already been fired in three previous managerial jobs and had a losing record (894-1003) as a bench boss. Needless to say, he turned that reputation around in the Bronx — Torre won four World Series championships, six AL pennants and 10 AL East titles as the Yankees’ manager, leading them to the postseason in all 12 of his years with the team. This success paved the way for Torre’s induction into the Hall of Fame last summer. Here’s this week’s look around the baseball blogosphere…
