Torre will stay with Yankees in 2007
NEW YORK -- Joe Torre will remain as manager of the New York Yankees, finally getting the word from owner George Steinbrenner after the team's surprise elimination from the playoffs last weekend.
Torre spoke with Steinbrenner on the telephone Tuesday, shortly before he walked into the interview room at Yankee Stadium and made the announcement.
"He gave me his support," Torre said. "I'm just pleased I'm able to stay on and do this."
Torre didn't go into detail about his conversations with Steinbrenner.
Torre has led the Yankees to 11 consecutive playoff berths and nine AL East titles in a row.
