Former baseball player and shadow occupier, Frank Torre died at the spry age of 82.

In 1957, he hit two home runs to help the  Milwaukee Braves beat the Yankees in the ‘57 world series.  Which make him a national hero.

But when his brother went to work for the Yankees, they bought themselves a few world series wins.  So… Joe’s the famous one.

Frank would become the Forgotten Torre while his asshole brother would be remembered for being this “great” manager.  Joe was a shitty manager.  His boss just spent crazy money on salaries.  If Joe Torre was such a great manager, he would have gotten a winning season from the Mets somewhere between ‘77 and ‘81.  But he didn’t.  You know why?  He’s not a Frank Torre“great” manager.  I’m not even asking for a world series here, just a winning fucking season.

Joe, regarded his older brother as a mentor during their traumatic years growing up with an NFL star of a father in Brooklyn.   I assume he was an NFL star because he beat his wife on a regular basis, which scared the tar out of the Torre kids.

Despite this, Joe continued to be an asshole to his older brother.

In 1996, Frank went in for a heart transplant.  His brother, reinforced the Yankee-asshole stereotype by not staying with his loving brother in the hospital the entire time.  Noooo… he had to manage his team in the World Series… asshole.

While Frank was the Forgotten Torre, Bean remembered him!  Tailgating with Jesus suddenly reminds us that he’s still in this mo-fo!  Bean goes up to 160 points!  A mere 30 points behind the leader!

Looks like Jami needs to spike some addict’s drink to keep her lead up.

NOTE:  Draft Night is on November 1st!  Please let me know if you plan on coming.

Happy pooling,
