Torre Surfs The Willie Watch

“It’s a tough market,” Torre said. “Willie is a good man, he’s had success as a player and a manager. Unfortunately, with what happened last year, he’s having to endure some things tough to endure.

“People get caught up on both sides of the equation. He’s under a great deal of pressure, as is [Yankees manager] Joe Girardi, as was I [for 12 years as the Yankees manager]. Maybe you’re not as well-rested one day and you get a little cranky.”

I like Joe’s new commercial that was on during Idol – Joe adjusting to life in LA – but I can’t find it online to share.
