Joe Torre Will Be MLB Executive VP

Former New York Yankees and New York Mets skipper Joe Torre is finding life after managing. On Friday, MLB commissioner Bud Selig announced that Torre will take a new gig as executive vice president for baseball operations.

According to SI.com's Jon Heyman, Torre will, "oversee on-field operations, making him one of the top executives at MLB's offices in New York".

Torre, who played 18 seasons, mainly as a catcher and first basmen, and managed the Yankees (1996-2007) to four World Series titles, seems like a decent fit for this position. However, do we actually know what MLB executives do? Or any executive in any job does?

Torre, 70, seems to not want to jump into the television booth -- he'll stick with State Farm Commercials -- or take a analyst job at MLB Network. I guess, as long as Torre isn't trying to find out who's coming out of the bullpen in the company softball game, the MLB is going to be ok.
