What's the reason for the shake up? Are there any particular things they're not happy with that we know of?

Obviously umpiring for starters - Mike Port is a good guy but he was blindsided by this.

New guy in town, his people get into place. Happens all the time, so there is no surprise there.

Hire a guy who has been a Manager for the past few decades, you get someone who knows how bad the bad Umps are and how good the good ones are. I expect to see an increase in the quality of the umpiring. If Ozzie left the Sox and Torre made him in charge of the umps, there would be some very interesting developments in umpiring.......:smile:

Gammons said Mike Port's job was eliminated as Torre demanded control over the umpires as part of his taking the job.

Bob Watson 'retired' in November - Alderson took the Mets job knowing he was on thin ice. Selig is plotting something....

God would it be nice if Torre could get rid of him. No teal.
