Joe Torre Could Be In Line For Position Within MLB League Office
Former MLB manager Joe Torre last night said he is "definitely interested" in a front-office role with MLB that could include the post of Exec VP/Baseball Operations. Torre, at the MLB owners' meetings in Arizona as a member of the league's Special Committee for On-Field Matters, added he expects further discussion on the topic with MLB Commissioner Bud Selig while there, schedule permitting.
Several talks about Torre joining the league office have already occurred in recent weeks, he said. No formal job offer, however, has arrived yet from Selig, and it is not known whether one will be made to Torre. "I think he's also still talking to other people. ... It's a two-way street here," said Torre.
