10 Questions With Mike Vaccaro

5. Has Torre Lost the Dodgers?

RCS: Of course, Torre is currently the manager of the Dodgers. Do you think he’s lost the trust of his current players, and if so, what can he do now to repair that trust?

Vaccaro: Torre is nothing if not smart and savvy; you know this is the first thing he will address at spring training. And it's funny: the very thing that always caused the Dodgers so much pre-Torre angst -- the age and makeup of the kids on the roster -- might help this. Kids probably won't be as prone to being wary and holding grudges as vets might be. Plus, whenever I was around that team last year it was evident they like playing for Joe. That's the biggest thing he'll have going for him.
