ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Joe Torre wants to wait a few more months before deciding whether he wants to manage after this season.
Torre, who'll be 70 on Sunday, is in the final year of a three-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Before the season, talks were cut off.
Torre said Friday he wanted to make sure he retired when he was still healthy and active. Attending Wimbledon is one of the things Torre said he wanted to do.
By September, Torre expects to have a good idea what he'd like to do.
As for now, he said managing is still exciting for him, although he's not enamored of all the travel. The Dodgers were in third place in the NL West, four games back.
