Joe Torre Does It His Way.

I’m not the least bit upset that Joe Torre turned down a one-year $5 million deal from the New York Yankees, the deal carried incentives that would make the deal worth $8 million.

The deal would also give Torre a lame duck status throughout the 2008 season, something a manager of his stature does not deserve.

Torre managed the Bronx Bombers for twelve seasons, of those twelve seasons he won 4 World Championships he made the playoffs all twelve of his seasons at the helm.

He has managed through the illness of his brother, he has managed through 9/11 and during those times he has managed with dignity and class.

The ripple effect of Torre’s departure is bound to effect the Steinbrenner’s and the Yankees’ immediate future…stay tuned.
