Taken from April 28, 2007 - NEW YORK POST

April 28, 2007 -- A seven-game losing streak has George Steinbrenner so concerned he is wondering if replacing Joe Torre is the answer.

Last October, The Boss came very close to boxing Torre after the second straight first-round elimination in the postseason. This past Monday, Steinbrenner expressed to Torre how disappointed he was that the Yankees were swept by the Red Sox last weekend in Boston.
Yesterday, the word out of Tampa was that Steinbrenner "was very displeased" about the way his high-priced stable of talent is underachieving and was thinking about a change.
And that was before the Red Sox punished the last-place Yankees, 11-4, in front of 55,005 at Yankee Stadium last night.

Could Torre, who is in the final year of his contract, really be fired before April is finished? Is Torre the reason the starting rotation has melted in the first month and put an alarming workload on the bullpen? Is it Torre's fault the lineup, so potent through 19 games, has gone 20 innings without an extra-base hit?

If Steinbrenner and the voices he is listening to believe the answers are "yes," and if the Yankees get swept this weekend by the Red Sox, it's not out of the realm of the possibility that The Boss could make a change.

Bench coach Don Mattingly and former Yankees catcher Joe Girardi are the names you hear when potential replacements for Torre are mentioned. Working in Girardi's favor is that he has a year of managing experience. Mattingly was moved from hitting coach to bench coach to be groomed as Torre's successor.

Are the Yankees Really This Bad?

"It's as frustrating as you can get. It's embarrassing is what it is. It's a joke that I can't go out there and get through six or seven innings right there when the team needs me to do that as bad as they do." -- 4.27.07, Andy Pettitte

Big Dave's View

It does my old heart good to the see the Yankees lose. I am not a Hater, but I am a Boston Sports Fan who is sick and tired of seeing NYC be in the forfront of America. Last year the Sox had a tremendous first half and a horrific second half. Could this be a repeat? I doubt it Boys & Girls. Things are much different in the AL East in 2007. The Six, O's & Jays are much - much better now. The yanks are regressing into the bone-yard of the sport.

The Yanks hung on and won the AL East in '06, because they had the balls and determination to do so. 2007 is another story! The once proud - strong Yanks have become "wanks". They lose because they do not pitch well - yes they can still hit. One to eight their lineup is one of the best in baseball history. BUT - the pitching staff has more holes than one of your Pa's old tee shirts and IT smells that bad too.

I know -- wait and see, but let us all enjoy the current fall of the Evil Empire! It is much more fun to win - when you BEAT THE DAMNABLE NY YANKEES.
