Joe Torre in the Hall of Fame





Former Yankees Skipper, Joe Torre has been elected to join the greats at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.  He along with Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox will be listed among the greats for their accomplishments as players and especially as the most winningest of managers.  I am glad he was included.  I have great memories as a kid watching the Yankees win world series after world series.  The Yankees have not been the same since his departure.  

Torre was mocked by the Daily News when he was introduced as Yankees Manager in 1996.  The title they used was "Clueless Joe."  This was because as the manager of the Mets, he did not have much success taking that team to the world series.  However, others counter this by saying that the Mets weren't that good to begin with and that no manager can perform miracles.

Congratulations to Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox
