Yankees brass to meet next week regarding Torre

The meetings are likely to start Monday night or Tuesday, and they probably will be held at the team's spring training complex in Tampa, Fla.

Joe Torre will not be asked to attend the start of the session, when owner George Steinbrenner, his sons and top aides will discuss whether to bring the manager back for a 13th season -- which would be the longest run for a baseball manager in New York since Joe McCarthy was in the Yankees' dugout from 1931-46.

Steinbrenner said last weekend that he didn't think the Yankees would keep Torre if the team failed to advance from its first-round series with Cleveland. New York was eliminated in four games by the Indians. the Yankees' third straight opening-round exit, but Steinbrenner has been silent on Torre's fate. (Yahoo! Sports)

This is only the beginning of what looks like will be a very eventful offseason.

Mariano Rivera has already come out and said that Torre's fate may affect his decision on whether or not he will want to re-sign with the Yankees. However, it is a business, and if the Yankees offer the most money, I'm sure Rivera wouldn't mind re-signing with the Yankees, regardless of the manager.

Mattingly doesn't want Yanks job

Yankees bench coach Don Mattingly has told a member of the Steinbrenner family he does not feel ready for the manager's job and is uncomfortable with replacing Joe Torre, according to a friend. The friend, who requested anonymity because the situation is unresolved, said he spoke directly with the former Yankees great in recent days. Mattingly's stance could open the door for the Yankees to bring back Torre for a 13th season because he was the leading candidate for the job.
