From the Bergen Record, George Steinbrenner on Joe Torre:
"His job is on the line" He continued "I think we're paying him a lot of money. He's the highest-paid manager in baseball, so I don't think we'd take him back if we don't win this series."
I hope this is true. Yes, it's unfair to judge a manager on the result of a playoff series. However, when one builds his reputation on being a postseason winner, you can't complain when people think you've lost your "magic" after losing for seven consecutive years.
More on this, if the Yankees lose this series.
