Torre's made up his mind about 2011

Joe Torre Joe Torre has made a decision about managing the Dodgers in 2011 -- he's just not telling.

"I know what I'm going to do," Torre told reporters (via MLB.com ) before Thursday's game. "I still have some things I need to do first. Everybody is assuming I'm not coming back, which is the fun part. My wife knows. If my wife knows, my daughter knows. Ned [Colletti] and I have talked."

Earlier Thursday, Dodgers bench coach Bob Schaefer mentioned in a radio interview that he didn't think Torre would be back next season.

"He doesn't know that," Torre responded.

MLB.com's Ken Gurnick wrote he took "an informal and anonymous clubhouse poll" and the result was a split "almost down the middle."

Dodgers bench coach doesn't see Torre returning

So, apparently Dodgers bench coach Bob Schaefer felt like talking when he appeared on MLB Network Radio with Jim Bowden and Casey Stern.

Here's what he had to say, according to Bowden's Twitter account :

Some interesting stuff -- it's not exactly Earth-shattering that he doesn't believe Joe Torre will return to the Dodgers next season.

As for his statement about Manny Ramirez, the numbers back him up -- in the first 27 games of 2009, Ramirez hit .348/.492/.641 with six homers and in the 77 after the 50-game suspension, he hit .269/.389/.492 with 13 home runs.
