Yankees remain days away from decision on Torre
Published October 11, 2007
NEW YORK - Deciding Joe Torre's fate might take the Yankees longer than their playoff run.
Meetings on the manager's future won't start until Friday at the earliest, possibly not until next week. Even the site of the sessions hasn't been set, although they probably will take place at the team's spring training complex in Tampa.
New York was eliminated Monday by the Indians in the ALDS, the Yankees' third straight first-round exit. Owner George Steinbrenner's flight home to Tampa on Tuesday was delayed by weather, and he didn't arrive until late. He was not seen at Legends Field on Wednesday.
Since Steinbrenner, 77, said last weekend that he didn't think Torre would remain if the Yankees failed to advance, players have urged the owner to retain the manager who helped New York overcome a 21-29 start and reach the playoffs for the 13th straight year.
"I don't feel good about it," closer Mariano Rivera said. "I don't see why they're even thinking (about letting Torre go). I wish he's back, definitely."
Rivera is eligible to become a free agent. He said the decision on Torre will be part of his decision.
CARDINALS: RH reliever Russ Springer, 38, agreed to a one-year contract after posting a 2.18 ERA in a career-high 76 games.
