Even after last night, Torre says he is still confident in Contreras.

Why?

I've been going to games since August 8, 1973....and on August 22, 2004, finally, a foul ball came my way. I had to reach for it, and it deflected off the tip of my right index finger. Shoot, if I was only 4 inches taller!

You know you've had a bad night from your starting pitcher when he is showered and dressed before your lead-off hitter even bats.

What would you expect or want him to say in public?

What I would like to hear Torre say: That he has to do better and that results like last night are unacceptable.

I think it's time for tough love on Jose. I doubt that Castro held his hand and kept stroking his head.

well, they're skipping his next start, so there goes your confidence... 'at least till his mechanics get sorted out'
