    This thread is not about the USF Bandwagon

    I absolutely HATE the yankees and steinbrenner, but I have the upmost respect for Joe Torre. I just thought I would pose the question on whether you would keep him or fire him.

    Me personally, there is no way I would lose him, 12 playoff apps in 12 years??? That's incredible in the MLB no matter who you are. yet again, new york has standards no other team anywhere has.

    FOX Sports on MSN - MLB - Yanks make no decision on Torre's future

    If you were Torre why wouldn't you say, "Screw you guys, I'm going home."

    Re: This thread is not about the USF Bandwagon

    Keep Torre and get rid of Cashman... How much of the Steinbrenner's money has he flat out wasted.... He stripped their minor league system and now rushes the few prospects they do have... Have a plan man, don't just go spending on whatever free agent is out there... He forced out a Yankee lifer in Williams because they already had 5 guys who could only DH....

    Oh, and I hate the Yankees... Can't wait fot the Colorado v. Cleveland series, two teams that play the game right, on and off the field...

    As strange as it sounds...especially with the info you provided above...doesn't it just feel like the Yankees have underachieved? With all that money and all that talent wouldn't you expect more World Series titles?

    Re: This thread is not about the USF Bandwagon

    I am a Huge Red Sox fans. The way I see it Torre has had the highest payroll for the last 12 years he has been coaching. The last 7 years it's been the highest by far. If they fire him I would totally understand. It's kind of rediculous that he can't win with the team they give him. Fire Cashman??? All he does is go get the best players every year. What has he done wrong.
