Just as the attention of the baseball world has turned away from them to teams more deserving, the Yankees and their willing accomplices at ESPN turn the spotlight back on themselves with this Joe Torre announcement.
Who outside of Yankees fans care? And yet ESPN pre-empts one of my favorite shows, Around The Horn, yesterday, to have a 30 minute show on Joe Torre.
I'll bet eleven donuts that the announcement of a new Yankees manager will occur next week as some other team is on the verge of winning the World Series, drawing attention back to them again. And if not a new manager, some other big news will come out of the Bronx to capture the gaze of fawning sports reporters.
