Page 2 staff

He has won four of the last five World Series, but Joe Torre is better known this week for his controversial All-Star selections. So, what's on the mind of the Yankees skipper entering the Midsummer Classic? Page 2 reveals all:

"Five batters ought to be about right for Roger tonight."

"And if Piazza gets out of line, I'll sic the Gerbil on him."

"I don't know what everybody's talking about. Hard to work for? This guy's a pussycat."

"Here's my game plan: After the first pitch, I'll yank Boone, Ichiro and Olerud and replace 'em with Jeet, Bernie and Jorge."

"I can't say it yet, but technically I named eight Yankees to the All-Star team."

"Who said there's no crying in baseball?"

"Thank God for Velcro Bobby. As long as he's working in this town, I'll always be Teflon Joe."
