Joe Torre Keeping An Eye On Girardi, Mattingly Talk

Joe_Torre_2013LOS ANGELES — Officially speaking, Joe Torre is staying out of it. Unofficially, the former New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers manager is keeping a close eye on the two men who succeeded him in both jobs.

Torre’s protégé with the Dodgers, Don Mattingly, finds himself in precarious waters despite leading the team to the NL West title.

The Dodgers have yet to pick up the option on Mattingly’s contract for next season, leaving his future with the club unsettled as they face the Atlanta Braves in the NL Division Series.
