Torre’s new world

There were four of us — FOUR OF US — there for Torre’s pregame session today. Going to guess he hasn’t had that few people for a media session since he was managing the Cardinals in 1995. Someone asked him if this reminds him more of his days managing the Braves and Cardinals, where only a handful of daily beat guys would gather around him and ask him nuts-and-bolts questions about the team. He said yes, it did, and that it is a welcome sign. … No changes on any of the injuries. Joe said Saito won’t pitch in a game “until I leave town,” meaning the departure for the China trip next Tuesday, but that’s just a precaution. Closers never need as many spring-training appearances as other pitchers, anyway.
