The Yankees current weakness is middle relief. Game 7 and who is doing middle relief - starters. They got the job done. Torre used what he had to best effect. Grady Little and Dusty Baker both went with their starters too long and guess what - they lost.
The thing that Joe does best is manage George. You have to give George credit. He bought the Yankees cheap ($10M I recall) and has turned them into a financial empire and baseball juggernaugt. Owners who object to the money George spends are jealous - they had the same opportunity to buy the Yankees, missed it and are now on the receiving end.
