Bonds' comment to Torre...

I was looking at the following article on ESPN (link) and the following quote made me wonder, did Bonds ever play against a Torre managed team?

"I want to thank the Giants for inviting all these great guys," he said. "It's weird for me not to be in uniform with the Dodgers [gesturing toward the Los Angeles dugout and manager Joe Torre] right there. You heard me, Torre. I beat you before and I can beat you again. I haven't retired. Thank you."

I can't think of any playoff games where the Giants or Pirates played a Torre managed team. Did they ever meet in an inter-league game or playoffs? I think the Giants made a visit to Yankee stadium, but I can't recall, is that what he's referring to? Or is he referring to playing against the Dodgers all those years with the Giants?

Joe Torre managed the Cardinals from 1990-95. Bonds' Pirates and Giants teams played the Cardinals dozens of times over that period. In 1990-92 Bonds had an OPS against the Cardinals of at least .900 every year, over 1.000 twice.

Well duh, how did I forget that? Had it stuck in my head that it had to be a playoff or interleague game.

Thanks Drungo!
