Torre never says never on managing future
Torre’s name has emerged as a possible candidate to replace Lou Piniella, who is retiring as Cubs manager at season’s end.
“I don’t want to rule anything out, but at this point in time I’m certainly not thinking of going anywhere else,” he said Wednesday.
“I don’t anticipate managing anymore if I’m not doing it here, but you’re certainly crazy if you don’t listen to things. I’m not saying that as a come-on to anybody, trust me. I’m just doing that so I don’t say, `I’m definitely not going to do it’ and all of a sudden I’m a liar somewhere down the road. I don’t want to be that.”
Torre is in the third and final year of his contract with the Dodgers, and during spring training he asked the club to put off discussions on a possible extension. He turned 70 last week, and has said he’ll decide his future in the next month or so.
Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is embroiled in a contentious divorce from his estranged wife Jamie, who contends that she also owns the team. The trial is set to begin Aug. 30.
“I enjoy this organization, I really have,” Torre said. “Has there been some stuff going on, distractions and all that? But, hell, after coming from New York, that’s no big deal, distraction-wise.”
