Colletti: Torre not a done deal

The Dodgers GM said he also is compiling a list of potential managerial candidates, although that presumably is only a fallback in the event the Torre thing falls through, which it doesn’t look like it’s going to. But that doesn’t mean it’s a lock.
“I have watched the last 72 hours, and I can’t believe what I’m watching,” Colletti said. “I’m telling you, we do not have an agreement, and I have seen more inaccuracy (in the media) than I can ever remember. … I don’t ever classify anything as close or far. It’s either done or it’s not done, and it’s not done.”
That having been said, Colletti was speaking early in the day and cautioned that things could definitely change later today. He didn’t specify what that meant, but he didn’t have to. It’s getting very difficult to imagine that Joe Torrey won’t be the next manager of the Dodgers, and it’s somewhat difficult to imagine that we won’t know that by the end of the day or early tomorrow.
Stay tuned. Or, if you would rather, go and do something else for a while and check back later. I wish I had that option.
