Torre Needs to Go

The All Star break came and went. With its passing brings hope for a lot of teams that they can make it to the post season. My Yanks are no different. Right after the All Star game itself, Jeter was quoted as saying that he believes the Yanks can catch the Sox before season’s end. Coming from Jeter, I’d believe anything. Unfortunately for Jeter and the rest of the Yanks, he has two things going against him: he has a leper playing to his right that fields balls hit to him like they are wrapped in poo and has emptied his tank in April and June, and he has a manager that is begging to be fired at the helm. Sorry Jeter, the Yanks’ shipping is going down faster than any of the strippers in the harem of the guy that plays to your right.

I despise #13 and have game 7 of the World Series marked on my caldendars at home and at work (even in my Outlook) as the glorious day when that clown can opt out of his deal. The Eric Duncan Era needs to begin tonight. Him leaving will make me happy beyond belief.  However, Torre is a different  story.

 It pains me to want Torre out. Unfortunately, his time passed during Game 7 of the ’01 Series. His managing since then has not been worthy of a AAA job. With Torre at the helm, there is no way this team can make it to the post season and win. No way. Look at yesterday’s game against the Rays as recent proof. Moose struggled early, but scraped to keep them in the game. The Yanks need to win damn near every game at this point, but rather than approaching every game like that (like Jeter does), Torre turns the ball over the Ron Villone, Luis Vizcaino and Kyle Farnsworth. What?!?!?!? Villone has no business even being on this team, and are there two better players than Vizcaino and Farnsworth to be the poster boys for how much of a disappointment this team has been? Villone of course sucked it, Vizcaino was surprisingly good, and Farnsworth, of course, was his typical terrible self. Has there been any inning this year (or even since he has been a Yankee) that he has not given up either a walk or a hit (or lots of both)?!?!? I can’t think of any. This is the same clown who showed up his manager and his teammates when he was pulled for being terrible. How is he even still on the team?!?!?!

Torre continues to make moves that put the Yanks in positions to lose. Granted, I know Torre can’t make Damon and Myers lose their vaginas and stop being a Red Sox homerspies. Or be Abreu’s therapist to make his mental boo-boo’s go away when he comes to the plate (could there be a worse walk year performance in the history of sport-probably guarantees that the Yanks will give him $15 mil per year for 10 years next year though). But, he can still make moves to put them in better positions to win. Whay not send runners? Why not manufacture runs? What the hell was that line-up you pout out for the Saturday game against the Rays?!?!?! Why not TELL your pitchers to pitch inside. When Sheffield and Lofton come up again against the Yanks, the Yanks pitchers should not have to be told to throw up and in. However, they won’t because Torre has created a culture of losing where sallyness is accepted. The Yanks have become the Cubs and “Wait ‘Til Next Year” is probably posted in the Yanks clubhouse somewhere.  Disgusting.

Torre needs to go. Yanks need to install Girardi or Larry Bowa as manager and give Paulie O whatever he wants to be bench coach. Seriously. Do you think Abreu would come back to the dugout after one of his typical at bats knowing that Paulie O would be waiting for him? No way.  Cashman needs to give Joe an endless supply of green tea, a new pillow to rest his head during games and send him on his way. If not, the Yanks might as well start making Fall tee times now.

  1. Here are more reasons and supporting documentation and proof that Torre is intentionally pitching the wrong guy when it matters most:

    From the NY Daily News: “Luis Vizcaino hurled a spotless eighth, but Torre insisted Kyle Farnsworth will remain his primary eighth-inning reliever. “That’s his job, he’s still an eighth-inning guy,” Torre said of Farnsworth, who has permitted at least one baserunner in 11 of his last 13 appearances. With 13 pitchers, Torre added that he’d like to get rookie Edwar Ramirez some important innings this week, saying, “I need to get him more involved.” Ramirez has pitched in only two games since he was recalled from Triple-A on July 1, and none since July 6 despite registering four strikeouts in 2-1/3 innings.”

    So Joe….when the game is on the line in the 8th inning your go to guy is the guy that always always always puts a runner on base. Give me a break. A tee ball coach could out manage you right now.

  2. What has Farnsworth done at any point is his career to warrant such blind loyalty?!?! He showed up his manager and his team. He has been terrible. What gives?!?!?
