Joe Torre

The New York Yankees inexcusably omitted an image of Joe Torre from its video tribute to past great managers Sunday night during closing ceremonies at Yankee Stadium.

Torre helped the franchise return to past glory when he piloted Yankees to four world championships and playoff appearance after playoff appearance. Now he's nearing yet another post-season berth as manager of the Dodgers.

The Torre-Yankees divorce wasn't the most amicable, but history is history and Torre deserved to be honored, right up there with Casey Stengel, Miller Huggins, Joe McCarthy and Billy Martin. (By the way, the Yankees overlooked Ralph Houk, too.)

So how's Torre doing? See this story in today's Los Angeles Times.
