Joe Torre has had a lot of success in New York. As manager of the Yankees, Torre won four World Series rings. After recently stepping down as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the 70-year-old future Hall of Famer isn’t ready to close the door on his future in baseball. In fact, Joe Torre is already talking about possibly managing the New York Mets.
“Oh, there is no question. That is why I didn’t shut the door,” said Torre when asked by ESPN’s Ian O’Connor about if he’d be interested in the Mets job.
Long before he was leading the Yankees to World Series titles, Torre was a manager for the Mets. Hired when he was 36, rejoining the Mets would bring Torre’s career full circle.
“I don’t really anticipate managing again,” said Selig, “but I think it would be unfair not to listen just out of curiosity to see if something excites me.”
The Mets are 74-76 and will surely miss the playoffs once again. After the season, it is expected that both the manager and GM job could be open. Torre would undoubtedly be a popular choice with fans and players.
