Torre Officially Joins MLB Staff To Oversee All On-Field Matters
Published February 28, 2011
RIGHT MAN FOR THE JOB: YAHOO SPORTS' Steve Henson wrote under the header, "Torre's Temperament Is Ideal For Key MLB Post." Throughout the league, "decisions will gain the benefit of the doubt because Joe Torre will have made them." Henson: "When discipline is meted out, Torre will explain why. If umpires’ hubris needs reining in, Torre will get it done without diminishing their authority. If replay is expanded or a crackdown on beanball retaliation becomes necessary, Torre will make the announcement and take the questions in measured, congenial tones, leaving the impression that baseball knows what it is doing" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 2/27).
