    Former managers Tony La Russa, Joe Torre and Bobby Cox have been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by a unanimous vote of the Expansion Era committee.

    La Russa, Torre and Cox each won more than 2,000 games as a manager. Torre is one of five to win at least four World Series titles, which he did with the Yankees in 1996 and 1998-2000. La Russa won championships with Oakland in 1989 and St. Louis in 2006 and 2011. Cox led Atlanta to the 1995 World Series title and 14 straight division titles.

    Steiner Collectibles is probably trying to broker a three-signature ball as we speak…

    So, will the Yankees now give Torre a day and retire #6?

      I’m really glad Joe got in. And, really glad Steinbrenner didn’t.

      It will be interesting to see what former players go in too. Going to be a huge ceremony this year.

      Why is “Clueless Joe” in the Hall? Is it because he is the only M.L.B. manager to lose a best-of-seven postseason series with a 3-0 lead? Because he won four world championships with teams built by Gene Michael? Or is there a legitimate reason?

      According to the worst G.M. in baseball, Torre’s number will be retired: “… At some point, that’ll happen. No doubt about it. Clearly it’s already unofficially happened.”
