I have the perfect scenario re: Yankees/Torre/Cashman et al.

This would take a bit if financial commitment from a notoriously cheapskate organization in order to really work, but if Stienbrenner is stupid enough to fire Torre, and with Stottlemyre definately leaving and Cashman most likely leaving, how about all three of them going to the Devil Rays together??

Zimmer is already there. . . There is already somewhat of a rivalry. . . The Tampa thing is perfect with the "2nd front office" for the Yankees (and the one that seemingly is more in Stienbrenner's favor) there. . . You have the "big spenders" vs "frugal upstarts" thing going (although, once again, The Devil Rays cannot be quite as obscenely cheap as they have been). . .

That, from a dramatic standpoint, is soooo juicy that Selig should even get involved as much as he can in order to make it happen IMO.

that would make things interesting.

The way Yank fans are trashin A-Rod maybe he can join em down there.
Cripes, they are even trashin Matsui, and if they dont re-sign that man, they are the biggest fools in the game.

Why would firing Torre be stupid? Yanks really haven't cut it for years with
the amount of money they spend - it's approaching a billion dollars since
they beat the Mets in 2000.

Why would Torre want to go to Tampa Bay after having what many people
would think of as baseball's dream for so long?

I still watch the video of Pedro dismissing Zimmer to the ground and laugh.

Selig should stay away from juicy and just retire already.

Tampa Bay & Beltran

How about the Yankees do the Tampa thing and we swap Beltran to TB ...closer to home for him...and Take MayRod...I think he would fit in as a Met!

cant buy love,
cant buy happiness,
cant buy the way the ball bounces in baseball.

Money can get you the ingedients, but it cant make em jell.

With my connection in the Tampa Bay ownership group, I could try to make it happen.
