- a Korean Groundskeeper, in the movie Major League.
In the film, he wasn’t talking about the 2005 New York Yankees – but, he might as well have been……..
One more game like this over the weekend and maybe Joe doesn’t get a ticket back home to the Bronx. I did find it interesting in the post-game where Joe, when asked what did he say to the team, said “It’s nobody’s business.”
Whatever he said, if it doesn’t work, what more can he do to turn this around? Nothing, probably. So, why not give someone else a chance to see if they can clean up this mess while there’s still some time to make a run at this season? Money (as in the remainder of Torre’s contract) an issue?
That’s sort of silly. Think of it this way: You’re throwing a party and you’ve spent $200 million already on the plans. Now, unless you throw in another $16 mill, the party will be a failure. Of course, it makes sense to throw in some more dough rather than let the $200 million investment go down the tubes. That’s why it would make no sense to allow Torre’s remaining money on his contract to preclude the team from making a change.
