Torre vs. Steinbrenner

By bullpenbrian - October 11, 2009 - 12:01 am Leave a comment.

I’m already thinking Dodgers vs. Yankees in the World Series.

I’d just love to see Torre, who was shamefully pushed out of Gotham; take it to the Steinbrenners.

The former Yankee skipper doesn’t get the credit he deserves for winning four championship rings.

Back-to-back NLCS appearances with the Dodgers, however, can’t be ignored.

The Cardinals played much better in the NLDS than the Cubs did the past two Octobers, but still left with the same result: no wins.

Roidriguez

Here’s what’s laughable about the recent A-Roid news.

ESPN’s Outside the Lines ran an interview Sunday with a former Rangers trainer who says during Spring Training 2003 he warned then Rangers GM John Hart that Roidriguez was showing signs of PED use.

Hart says he has no recollection of this conversation. Remarkable isn’t it!

So, let’s get this straight: team trainer tells GM that his star player – and one of the game’s brightest stars – is using PEDS…and the GM can’t remember such a conversation.

For me it’s beyond comprehension just how stupid some of baseball’s players and front office personnel believe the fans are.

There’s no better example of this than Roger Clemens continuous denial of using HGH and steroids.

Apparently we’re all jock-sniffing clowns with no grasp of the outside world.

Seriously, who do these guys think they’re fooling!!!

And what is it the guilty parties believe they gain from hiding the truth?

Plus, I have to believe the A-Rod news put a smile on Joe Torre’s face wider than the Brooklyn bridge.

New York ran Torre over the coals after his book release saying the former Yankee skipper broke the locker room code of keeping personal matters in house.

The thing is, Torre won’t lose any respect for telling the truth in his book, which, was only strengthened with the discovery of A-Roid.
