ESPN's hall-of-fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons went on The Michael Kay Show based in New York City to talk about postseason baseball. What came out of his mouth at the end of the interview was both shocking yet not surprising.

Here's the tail end of the interview:

Michael Kay: One final thing. Joe Torre said today that after next year when his contract is up, he thinks that's going to do it. He'll be 70 years old. Do you buy that? Peter Gammons: Yes. I do buy that. I can just see him out there surfing in Hawaii, in Maui re-enacting that commercial. I wouldn't be surprised.

I think a lot of things will probably come out here in the next few months. But I think life with the Dodgers is pretty much a living hell.

MK: Really?!

PG: Oh yeah.

MK: So he thought he had it bad in New York, and now it's worse there?

PG: Oh yeah. There'll be a lot that comes out in time with Dodger ownership. But that is a mess. I don't think anybody wants to have to put up with it too long.

MK: Wow.
