Here are the details, courtesy of SteveB of the NJ.com Yankees blog:
The first time was on Opening Day, April 4th. When the Manager of the New York Yankees went out the mound to remove CC Sabathia from the game in the bottom of the 6th inning, Yankees radio announcer Suzyn Waldman said the following- "And here comes Joe Torre to get CC."So the blogger came up with a poll, for readers to vote on who is the Manager of the New York Yankees. Here are the voting possibilities:
The second time was April 13th. When the Manager of the New York Yankees presented ex-Yankee Hideki Matsui with his 2009 Championship Ring, it was, once again, Yankees radio announcer, Suzyn Waldman, who reported- "And Matsui is giving Joe Torre a hug."
The third time was April 15th. This time it was YES television broadcaster Al Leiter who referred to the Manager of the New York Yankees during Marcus Thames' 2nd inning double. Off the bat the hit looked like it would clear the fence and Thames went into his HR trot, only to see the ball bounce off the left-center field wall. Thames needed to hustle into second base for the double and Leiter mentioned that this (the lack of hustle out of the batter's box) was something Joe Torre didn't like seeing. He was corrected a minute later by Michael Kay, who seems to have a special insight as to whom the Manager of the New York Yankees might actually be.
Cup o' Joe
