Joe Torre the player was extremely underrated. Over 18 years, his 162 game average was .297/.365/.452 with 18 homer's and 87 rbi's. He won one MVP award in 71, and finished in the top 5 another year. Was voted to NINE All Star teams, won a Gold Glove, and batted .363 in his MVP year to lead the league in BA. Not bad stats at all for a guy that will go down as being remembered as the captain of the Yankees ship, not as a very good, if not great, player.
