LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- Joe Torre, who is quitting as the LA Dodgers' manager at season's end, says he hasn't talked to anyone about going to the New York Mets next season.
ESPN reports there is speculation Torre, a New York native, will replace Jerry Manuel as manager of the Mets, who have struggled this season and last.
"I never like to rule anything out," Torre said Sunday before the Dodgers played Colorado. "I guess some close, personal friend of mine has been telling people that is where I'm going. Overall, a lot of people don't really care if it's true or not. They just fire it out there.
"Wherever I go, if I go anywhere, there obviously are no legs to this story because I have had no conversations of any kind and nobody I know has had any conversations of any kind with anybody."
Torre said he has no idea who might be putting his name out there for the Mets job.
