Not too many teams can afford Joe Torre......
I really wouldn't call it a stepping down. LA management is pretty upset about how LA went from second in the division to 4th place and lost their shot in the postseason. I think it was a mutual decision when they told Grady they were going to replace him.
Now thier talking about Torre and Mattingly to come in and coach, which i love and hate at the same time. I love it cause it will put "Donnie Baseball" in a great posistion a few years down the road when Torre retires. I hate it because i don't think Torre can coach NL teams very well and i think it is a bit of "stunt casting" on LA's part to pick up more Season Tickets. But then again i think they should bring back Lasorda.
