Joe Torre sounds like he's going to retire

Aug 18, 2010, 3:31 PM EST

Jon Paul Morosi caught up with Joe Torre yesterday, and based on a bunch of quotes — which I’m not going to reproduce; click through and read them — concludes that Torre is leaning strongly towards retiring.

Maybe there’s more going on than we know and Torre’s comments were all prefaced with a big disclaimer or something, but I can see, based solely on what Torre is saying, why Morosi concludes that Torre is going to retire.  I mean, when you start talking about watching your kids grow up (and Torre has a teenage daughter), you probably mean business.

We’ll know for sure soon enough.

    Hey, he’s like 70, its time to hang ‘em up already. Enough, doesn’t need the money and surely don’t see any more World Series in his near future.

    As important as Torre has been to the Dodgers the past two seasons, a change could do everyone good but by change I mean a new manager with the freedom to choose his own staff and as much as a respect Mattingly, my gut tells me he will be the wrong choice for manager next year. If I had a vote, it would be for Tim Wallach to get the job.

    I would love to see Joe Torre mud wrestle Brett Favre.

    Favre agreed to the match, but then changed his mind. Then thought about it for awhile, and re-decided to do it. He’s not sure about next year’s match, however.
