Cincinnati Welcomes Joe Torre With Open Arms

Posted by Matt on October 12, 2007


Well, we haven’t yet but we would, and doesn’t that crimson and black look good on Joe? I think so.

If, or when, the New York Yankees and Mr. Torre part ways, I am sure there are many teams that would be high on his services and he’s already stated that he isn’t ready to move somewhere and do nothing. If Torre is still looking to manage, what a perfect place Cincinnati would be for him. There is a lot of young talent in Josh Hamilton, Edwin Encarnacion, Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto, Jeff Keppinger, Homer Bailey, Phil Dumatrait, among others, for Torre to mold and bring together as a strong, cohesive unit around veterans such as Adam Dunn, Ken Griffey Junior, Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo, etcetera.

There would be absolutely no pressure on Torre like he felt in The Big Apple, where his job was on the line anytime he didn’t win the World Series. In Cincinnati, if his teams starting sniffing the smiling side of .500 quickly, Reds fans would be elated. A Playoff appearance? Joe Torre is a saint. A World Series ring? Joe Torre gets a street and/or bridge named after him. It’s that easy.

Now I realize the Cincinnati Reds front office has already interviewed former Giants and Cubs manager Dusty Baker and he seems to be the early favorite to win the job, but I just hope the Reds don’t act too quickly and can weigh all of their possible options, especially if those options include Joe Torre. I would not be against Dusty Baker as he is a high profile manager and that is something the Reds have needed for a long time, but there are a lot of fish in the pond and if the new ownership is set on winning, they should settle for nothing less than the best; especially if the best available is Joe Torre.

Because Cincinnati would welcome Joe Torre with open arms.

    Like the Reds would actually open their pocketbooks enought to entice Joe Torre. In Cincy fans’ dreams.

    LOL, I know…that is the sad thing about. I am such an optimist when it comes to those losers…
