Torre Moving From Dugout To MLB's Gotham City Lair

From SI.com's Jon Heyman:

Major League Baseball is expected to announce tomorrow that longtime player and manager Joe Torre will be appointed to a major role in the commissioner's office as the executive vice president for baseball operations.

In the new role, Torre would oversee on-field operations, making him one of the top executives at MLB's offices in New York.

I can't imagine a better man for the job. Torre's been around forever, knows everyone, seems to get along well with everyone, and his credibility is off the charts. At the very least this a great move for MLB, PR-wise. The job probably does occasionally require some tough love, which is why Sandy Alderson was good at it. If Torre can resist the temptation to make everyone happy all the time, this should work out well enough.
