Well, remember that a lot of decisions are made by the Boss and not by him.
The one decision that I really don't understand this year was getting Kevin Brown. I understand he was probably the best guy out there...The guy has some skills, but has he gone an entire year since the mid 90s without getting hurt at least twice? They paid 15 million bucks and a bunch of private jet trips for that...
Grady Little got fired last year for winning a ton of games and making a questionable call to lose the ALCS. Any chance Torre gets fired for this "choke?"
On a side note to what I said earlier - Sportscenter (which is now running 90 minutes at a time - isn't 60 enough?) wasted 20 minutes of the show talking about every single Yankees-Red Sox game over the past 18 months...that must be how you fill all that extra time that they don't need.
