      To be clear: A Pavano-Yankees reunion would have only happened on a sign-and-trade that would’ve saved the NYY their No. 1 pick.

      I think there are/were too many moving parts for that to realistically happen.

      In truth, Torre was neither a genius nor a complete buffoon.

      He managed the 2003 WS and the 2004 ALCS the way he has always managed. Come to think of it, I’d say most MLB managers would’ve managed the game the same way.

      Agreed, which is why we don’t see these types of trades too often.

      I suppose that’s true. I can certainly find fault with his decision-making during the 2003 WS. I guess the 2004 ALCS was less about Torre’s shortcomings and more about Rivera/Gordon failing to do their jobs and the offense picking the wrong time to take four games off…
