Joe, Yanks over & out: Loss in Motown leaves playoff skid marks (SAM BORDEN, 10/08/06, NY DAILY NEWS)

Joe Torre chewed his gum. It was all he could do, really, as he sat in the Yankee dugout here last night. Chew his gum while watching the season - and perhaps his tenure as Yankee manager - come crashing down around him.

Suddenly, the future of the Bombers is gloomy, and a virtual demolition of the franchise may not be far off. Torre's 11-year run as Yankee manager could end within days.

There are only two pitchers on the team you can trust with the ball--Mariano's likely not got a lot of cutters left in his arm and Wang just struck out 76 guys in 218 innings, numbers that are almost never a harbinger of long term success.
