    When Joe Torre took over as manager of the New York Yankees in 1996, the most storied franchise in sports had not won a World Series title in 18 years. The famously tough and mercurial owner, George Steinbrenner, had fired 17 managers during that span. Torre's appointment was greeted with Bronx cheers from the notoriously brutal New York media, who cited his record as the player and manager who had been in the most Major League games without appearing in a World Series.

    Overall

    Though not a Yankee fan, I have followed baseball for four decades and was hoping to deepen my understanding of the sport--or at least to find out something new and interesting about the Yankee teams of the last decade. But this is a pretty bland account of the Torre years. I'm guessing that the stuff he left out is probably much more interesting than what was included.
