Most of what you say is true, but the blame for Scott Proctor's ineffectiveness does fall on Torre. For the past several years, Torre has had a habit of having a favorite reliever that he uses repeatedly until the pitcher has nothing left. Proctor has that role this year and is currently on pace to pitch in 96 games.
See Proctor in the first half of '06, Villone in the second half of '06, Sturtze in '05, Quantrill '04/'05, Karsay '02. Tom Gordon also deserves honorable mention for narrowly avoiding being a part of this list.
Proctor is well on his way to following in the footsteps of Paul Quantrill and Tanyon Sturtze.
