Congratulations to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
I am a Yankee fan, and will forever be a Yankee fan, but I have been supporting the Dodgers this season as my secondary team. I grew up idolizing Don Mattingly, and spent every season from 1996-2007 watching Mr. Joe Torre calmly guide the Yankees to October after October, no-matter what obstacle’s were thrown his teams direction. He gets the best out of his players, there is no doubt about it.
It’s no coincidence that the Dodgers win their first NL East tittle since 2004, complete their first playoff sweep since 1963 and their first playoff series win since 1988 upon Mr. Torre’s arrival.
It is also no coincidence that the Yankees, in 2008, missed their first October since 1993 upon Joe Torre’s departure. I wonder what Hank Steinbrenner has to say now?
They just swept the Cubs; the Cubs had the best record in the National League.
Congratulations Mr. Torre, I knew you could do it again. Congratulations, Donnie baseball. Congratulations Los Angeles Dodgers, best of luck to you.
