Joe TorreIs Joe Torre's time with the NY Yankees over? The NY Daily News is reporting that Torre will be most likely let go after 11 years with the club. The article also cites that Alex Rodriguez "figures to be shopped on the trade market," as well.

The actions may come after, what many saw as the greatest offensive team ever, fall to the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS. The Yankees won Game 1 of the series but lost the next three.

As reported:

Afterward, Torre choked up on the interview room podium before composing himself. Like others, he seemed stunned. Critics wondered why he did not play Melky Cabrera earlier in the series or how he could use a neophyte first baseman such as Gary Sheffield in the playoffs, but the overriding fact was that the $200 million Yankees were overflowing with talent and it still wasn't even close to enough.

"I'm stunned," GM Brian Cashman said. "This team fooled me, to some degree."

That could be taken as a sign that changes are imminent, but Cashman gave no sign that Torre's situation was tenuous and the Yankee skipper did not offer any indication that he was concerned about his fate.

"What can the manager do? It is not his job to play the game for us," Mariano Rivera said. "It is the players who play."
