Joe Torre
Joe Torre's Yankees showed true class in defeat.
New York Yankees manager Joe Torre has guided his team back from two games to none, but Page 2 wants to give him something different instead of that World Series trophy he's already won four times.

Page 2 opened another case of The Berman Files to find a suitable nickname for the Yankees' skipper. Torre has calmly led the Yankees to four World Series titles in the past five seasons, but he deserves a snappy moniker so he's not mistaken for some ordinary Joe.

Since Wednesday, we received more than 500 letters suggesting nicknames. Below at the most clever ideas we received. Be sure to vote in the poll at left to pick the best moniker for Torre.

Check back next week for another case of The Berman Files.
