Torre rumors are alive and kicking

Joe Torre says there's nothing to it, but the New York Post says there is and the L.A. Times cites two major league sources who say the Dodgers are talking to ex-Yankee manager (and Angels broadcaster) Torre about replacing Grady Little as manager. Little hasn't been fired, but the Dodgers are evading the questions rather than denying interest. ESPN's Buster Olney also has sources saying talks are definitely on, and that the Dodgers had been wooing Joe Girardi before he was offered Torre's old job with the Yankees.
