JOE TORRE GONE!!!
In a typical Yankee idiotic move, after offering Joe Torre a one year (!) extention, he says NO! From ESPN.....
NEW YORK -- "Joe Torre rejected a $5 million, one-year contract to return as manager of the New York Yankees on Thursday.
The Yankees offered Torre a one-year deal with a base salary of $5 million and incentives that would have increased his salary to $8 million based on postseason performance. Under that offer, if Torre reached the World Series in 2008, an option for 2009 would have vested.
"It is now time for the New York Yankees to move forward," Levine said.
Torre made $7.5 million this year, the final season of a $19.2 million, three-year contract."
Peter here. I guess we all know now....the new leaders of the New York Yankees STILL don't know what the hell they are doing! Fools.
