Dodgers' manager gets long-needed operation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- New Dodgers manager Joe Torre had knee
replacement surgery this week.
Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Thursday
that the operation took place Wednesday.
The 67-year-old Torre, a former major league catcher, had said
for several years that he needed the operation. He had limped more
noticeably during the past year. After managing the New York Yankees to four World Series titles
in 12 seasons, Torre joined the Dodgers last month.
