For everyone who ever blamed Joe Torre for our first round exits, his Dodgers are now 2-0 over what was probably the best regular season team in the NL. My guess is the Dodgers will win this series. If they do, and I acknowledge that they haven't yet, all criticism of Torre for first round exits must end. Further, we must all accept that not giving him a two or three year contract was a mistake. Hopefully Girardi turns out to be the manager Cashman believes he can be. Only time will tell. He is of course following a legend and he could win three world series as a Yankee and ppl would say Torre won four. I'm trying desperately not to turn into Joe Girardi's NoMaas but I'm skeptical of the guy's ability to manage this team. Hopefully next year will be different, and if Wang stays healthy it should be. We definitely make the playoffs if not for Wang's injury, as he would have more than made up for the six games we missed the wild card by.
In conclusion, Joe Girardi blows, Joe Torre is great, and I blame Wang for what happened this year.
