Steinbrenner Blowing Steam or Serious?

8 posts in this topic

You guys think Torres done? If I were him, and even if crazy George didn't fire me- I'd be done with all his non-sense and find another team who would give me the freedom he doesn't and let alone all the criticism as well. I'd be gone either way....

I think he is done. If you don't win a world series in NY you aren't doing your job. Time for a change there. I think Torre will not coach next year with anyone else. I think he will end up with the Mets when Willie Randolph's contract is up after next year. As for Torre's replacement, I have heared 3 names: Mattingly, LaRussa, and Giradi. How about this name for ya: Tom Kelly. Can anyone picture him in NY? I'm just throwing his name out there. Would like to see TK coach again.

I'm not sure if TK will ever manage again. I seem to remember an interview of his on FSN and he said he stepped down from managing because he didn't like the person he was becoming, kind of like Terry Ryan. But a fat contract from Steinbrenner could change that!

I don't think Torre would mind not being brought back...he can find a job in the majors easily enough. He might just as soon get out of NY.

I don't think TK would put up with the Boss' BS. If he did get the job, he wouldn't last long there with his management style.

Mattingly's agent says he's interested in the job.

I thought I heard the opposite. Mattingly was not interested in taking the job from Torre.

I'm sure Mattigly is trying to be somewhat respectfull of the situation but he certainly wants the Job if it's available.

TK is way too smart to get mixed up with that bunch!

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
