Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe wrote in his Sunday notes column that “talk is strong” around the baseball world that Joe Torre might want to manage again. But it seems really doubtful to happen.
According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the 72-year-old Torre said Sunday afternoon that he is enjoying his current gig in the commissioner’s office and has no desire to return to the dugout. ”I don’t know where that came from,” said Torre. “Certainly not my camp.”
So we can put that rumor to rest before it gains any sort of steam.
Torre had a 2326-1997 career record in stints with the Mets, Braves, Cardinals, Yankees and Dodgers.
