We’ve all expected it for a while, and it isn’t yet official, but Jeff Fletcher of AOL Fanhouse reports that the Dodgers are finalizing a one-year extension with manager Joe Torre that will keep him in Los Angeles through 2011.
Torre, who turns 70 in July, signed a three-year, $13 million contract with the Dodgers after the 2007 season. Over his first two season in Los Angeles, Torre has led the Dodgers to consecutive National League West titles. Torre is 179-145 (.552) in Los Angeles and is fifth all-time with 2246 career wins.
