Joe Torre’s daughter reportedly caught falling baby in New York

Joe Torre’s daughter is being considered a hero in New York Wednesday after making a catch to save a falling baby. Seriously.

You Can Thank Joe Torre for Helping to Keep MLB Behind the Times

You can stick Joe Torre in the same category as Bud Selig and Sepp Blather when it comes to advancing the game using instant replay. And that’s not a good thing.

I Thought Joe Torre Had More Class

Tom Verducci wants to make it clear that the book he has co-authored with Joe Torre is a third person narrative, not a tell-all by Torre. Fine. Verducci says you need to read the book to understand the context of the quotes that have been revealed. Fine. He’s trying to sell a book, what else…Read More

Joe Torre Doesn’t Look Like Such a Genius Anymore

It bothered me that Joe Torre got so much credit for the Dodgers making it to the playoffs, and even more after they swept the Cubs. The amounts of praise he received was nauseating. There was talk about what a calming influence he provided, how he was able to tie together the two groups of…Read More
