I understand why we're still talking about Torts, but I really wish we weren't. I think the fact that we are so polarized over this guy can be boiled down to what you think about the following cliche:

"It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game."

You cannot argue with the results the man had here. They were great, especially by NYR standards. You can argue about whether or not the method by which those results were achieved were similarly great. Even if you take the argument over whether or not the "system" maximized the potential of the roster off the table, I will still argue that this team was just not playing the game the right way. The analogy to "positive" soccer is a great one. This team has not been playing a "positive" game, and I'm actually kind of glad they didn't win it all because it may have had a negative impact on the entire league given coach's copycat tendencies.

All of this media relations crap is irrelevant.
