Players Show the Love for Torre
By mvyb, 10.10.2006, 12:15

Here are some quotes the media's gathered over the past several days:
Ron Villone
"He gave us every opportunity (to win). He put us on the field at the right times ... You can't point the finger at him."
Jaret Wright
"I mean, he didn't get any at-bats. He didn't throw any pitches. We did that and we wish it could've turned out better for him, for us and for the fans, but it didn't and you go from there."
Scott Boras, Alex Rodriguez's agent
"Alex is very supportive of Joe Torre and enjoys playing for him. I think he views what happened this postseason as one where some great starting pitchers beat a very good offense. From his perspective, that had nothing to do with Joe Torre."
Miguel Cairo
"He's still the manager. I don't know what you guys are talking about. He's the manager. He's going to be the manager until something happens different but he's still the manager."
Ron Villone
"He's a class act. He knows what he's doing. He's a great manager."
Scott Proctor
"I've got nothing but great things to say about him. He gave me an opportunity. I learned a lot about handling New York. ... He handles the caliber of guys we had better than anyone."
NJ.com (Sports)
Chien-Ming Wang
"...[Torre] should stay here [as manager]. If I pitch a bad game, Joe [would say], 'Don't worry, forget about that.' "
NJ.com (Sports)
Ron Guidry
"The job I've seen him do with this team is probably the best job he [ever] did."
NJ.com (Sports)
Hmmm.... where's Jeter? Or Rivera? Or Posada? Mussina? Williams? All the veterans of the ball club have remained mysteriously quiet.
 The former New York mayor ( and huge Yankee fan) spoke out about Torre yesterday:
Rudy Giuliani
"I don't have any doubt that it is in the best interest of the Yankees to retain Joe Torre."
"You've got to look at a guy's whole record, and you have to look at the whole season, and you have to ask yourself, 'Would anyone have gotten the Yankees to the same place?"
   Reports are still floating around the country on the subject of Joe Torre's future. Some people insist he's on his way out, while others are quite sure that he'll stay with the Yankees for at least one more year.
Joe staying:
Read what you want. Believe what you want. My feeling is that Torre is gonna stay on as Yankee manager. Enough time has passed for Steinbrenner to cool down, maybe even think clearly.
Torre is holding a press conference today at 1PM, we'll learn his fate then.
