Congrats, Andre! From Tony Jackson:
Joe Torre broke the news to Juan Pierre this morning. "He just said 'OK,' but I know he is disappointed, and that's fine," Torre said. "You don't want a guy sitting on your bench who just accepts being on the bench." Torre said JP will be a regular bench player, pinch hitting, etc. "Before it's all said and done, we're going to get contributions from a lot of people," Torre said.
Joe Torre makes his first controversial decision, and it's the right one. Things are looking up after the Dodgers' dismal spring training.
