Joe ToorreI remeber when Reggie Jackson left the Yankee's ... My grandfather said there goes the Yankee's. I said Why..his reply was "pull the straw and the drink will fall" .. he then got on the phone furiously and change some bets he had made.
Torre had them Yankee's playing good ball. Then ole George fired him. Torre moved to La and they went to the play-offs and now lead the MLB in wins,and the Yankee's well we will see again this year.
There is alot of other situations where one man made a difference..
Does anyone remember the Braves and Fred "THE CRIME DAWG" McGriff?
