Joe Torre back in Yankee fold


Well, here's something we can stop worrying about -- Joe Torre is back in the fold:



First, Torre was essentially fired. Then he wrote the book. Then the Yankees disappeared him from the new Stadium (not really, but it made for cute little story for a couple of days). And now he's back in the fold. All in the space of less than three years. And it was, from the beginning, utterly inevitable.

Everything happens faster these days, and all the relevant parties are too clear-headed for this (supposed) rift to last much longer than it did.
