    Torre turns down the offer

    Joe Torre turned down a 1-year $5mill offer.

    20 minutes ago everyone was saying that a re-signing deal was going to happen. As a Yanks fan I didn't think it was going to be Torre who decided his fate.

    ESPN - Torre turns down offer to return as Yanks' skipper - MLB

    None of the major sites (ESPN, New York Yankees.com, MLB.com) have actually stories out yet....

    That is CRAZY!!!


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    If he really wanted to stick it to them, he would have accepted and sucked it up to take their $$$. Could not happen to a worse orginization.

    Good for Torre!!! He dosn't need the money and won't let the BOSS jerk him around any more. Glad someone finally said to Steanbrenner "no thanks, and STUFF IT"
    GO SOX and anyone but Yanks.

    Good for him. He won't be out of work for long either probably and the next place he goes will probably appreciate him more than NY did these past few years.

    Re: Torre turns down the offer

    NY appreciated him, the players appreciated him, it was Steinbrenner who can't pull his head out from betwixt his cheeks to appreciate him. I was born a Yankees fan, and I'll die a Yankees fan, but the Boss needs to ride off into the sunset.

    Re: Torre turns down the offer

    Awesome! Go Torre! I happy he's the one telling the Yanks to shove it instead of the other way around. He is a great manager and doesn't deserve the crap he's had to put up with. I hope my Orioles sign him.

    Re: Torre turns down the offer

    Some of the free agent players are going to tell George to shove it too without Torre there.

    Re: Torre turns down the offer

    I am so glad that Torre did that. That is so disrespectful for him to only get offered a one year deal. I hope he told them to shove it up their ***.

    Here's a darkhorse for where either LaRussa or Torre could end up: Seattle. They have a nice group of players there right now that made a push for the playoffs. Even heard that if Jocketty winds up as the GM there it would be more enticing for LaRussa as well.

    Ha! Go Torre. I hate the Yankees. At least he made them deliberate for a couple days wasting money and time on the issue before he said kiss my @$$.
