Joe Torre recently said that he’s going to manage in 2011 and his agent is currently negotiating with the Dodgers for an extension to make that so, but there’s no guarantee he’ll be back:
“I’m sort of sorry I said I’m even doing it, to be honest with you,”
Torre said. “I know what I want to do. I like the situation I’m in over
here and all that stuff. Even though I said want to manage next year,
even if I have a contract, that doesn’t mean that at the end of the
year, I won’t say, ‘That’s enough’ and do something else.”
And with that, anything else that gets said or written about Joe Torre’s status is officially meaningless.
