If divorce proceedings between Grady Little and the Dodgers go the distance, as many expect, The New York Post has learned Joe Torre has been targeted as the manager to heal a fractured Los Angeles clubhouse.
According to two people with knowledge of the Dodgers' universe, the club and Little are talking about a buyout that would leave the manager's office in Chavez Ravine vacant for Torre to inherit. Since none of Little's coaches is signed for next year and he is ($1 million and an undisclosed option for 2009), there has been speculation Little is out.
Torre, who wants to manage again, is interested in talking to the Dodgers if the job becomes available.
So the Dodgers want to replace a manager who doesn't understand in-game tactics or how to manage a bullpen with a manager who doesn't understand in-game tactic or how to manage a bullpen and is also actively trying to embarrass his former employers in the press and tonight on Letterman.
Why would Joe take the job? Well he gets to abuse the right arm of Scott Proctor again. Who could resist that?
