I watched approximately 10 minutes of the WS this year. I'll agree with you Matt, it was boring. So boring, in fact, that I fell asleep during the deciding game 6. Eighth inning, fish up 2-0, fell asleep, wake up and their celebrating. The first thing I did was wake the wife and told her the Yankees lost. She said good, then went back to sleep. I then said congrats to the Marlins and all their front running fans and switched the channel. I can tell you nobody in Massachusetts actually gave a **** about it, that's for sure.
Torre will be around another year. I doubt ole Georgie Boy wouldn't let him now that the Sox need a manager. As much as I hate the Yankees, Joe Torre is a class act and I would be estatic if him came to the Sox. Not going to happen though. His coaches might be let go (Zim, Mel, etc) but not him. Expect Steinbrenner to eclipse $200 million in payroll next year in his quest for another championship.
PS - And the best closeup of the WS: Soriano crying like a little bitch.
