Yankees’ meeting on Torre to start Tuesday

October 15, 2007


— Yankees officials will convene at their complex in Tampa, Fla., starting Tuesday morning to debate the future of Joe Torre.

Torre has led New York to the playoffs in all 12 of his seasons, but owner George Steinbrenner told The Record on Oct. 6 that he didn't think he'd bring back the manager if the Yankees failed to advance to the AL championship series.

Cleveland eliminated New York in four games, the Yankees' third straight first-round exit.

Steinbrenner will hear advice from sons Hal and Hank; son-in-law Felix Lopez; president Randy Levine; chief operating officer Lonn Trost; and GM Brian Cashman.

Levine said Sunday that the final decision remains with the 77-year-old owner.

"He's still the boss. He's acting like the chairman of a major company," Levine said. "As in many other instances in major-league baseball, his kids have stepped up and are devoting a lot of time on the day-to-day running of the team."
