Torre to the Dodgers

By

Joe Torre is heading west; Pete Abraham breaks the news. Scott Proctor’s reaction is here.

In all seriousness, I wish Joe the best of luck and I truly hope he gets to come back to The Stadium as a coach for the All-Star Game.

    This could be interesting. I wouldn’t be suprised if Torre takes most of his old staff with him. I like Kevin Long so I hope he stays. Also this could mean that A-Rod has more reason to go to the Dodgers if all he said about liking Torre was true

    It’s a good thing the Dodgers have a stud young catcher and an effective closer already.

    The Dodgers will be seeing a lot of Proc-Brox-Saito 7-8-9.

    I wish Russel Martin was a free agent.

    Proctor’s reaction = priceless! :-)

    Good point about the Dodgers already having their established young closer but Im not so sure about the closer. Takashi Saito is a damn good closer but when you have a chance to add one of the Top 3 closers in all of baseball and the greatest post-season closer of all time, you do it unless your the Red Sox or Angels.

      Jamal,

      LA isn’t going to spend the $ on Mo – especially at 38. If they do, so be it, but I can’t see it.

      They also have Broxton who is a good young closer in waiting and Meloan who should be a great 8th inning guy. They are one of the few teams that doesnt really need relievers
