Stuck in a rut, Yankees get hour-long meeting with Torre
TORONTO -- His team stuck in a rut, manager Joe Torre wanted to talk to the New York Yankees.
For an hour.
Sensing an attitude problem on his struggling team, Torre held a lengthy meeting before Monday night's game in Toronto. The session ran so long the Yankees were nearly a half-hour late taking the field for stretching and batting practice.
"I've seen some tentativeness," Torre said. "If there's a word to characterize this whole thing, it's 'frustration."'
