Joe Torre Turns Down Yankees Deal

Anti Yankees Thread Number 2

Joe Torre had an offer on the table for a one-year deal for 5 million with incentives that could reach 8 million. And Joe said no.

This is the first step to major turnover on the Yankees. A lot of the players who are on the cusp of free agency (Mariano Rivera, Posada, etc.) or just canceling their contract (A-Rod), were looking for Torre to return. Without him in New York a lot of guys might want to move on.

Next question is who will be the next manager in New York.

Tim Kurkjian of ESPN thinks the next Yankee manager will be Don Mattingly. Kurkjian had to say Mattingly because: “He’s a Yankee and he’s beloved.” Also it would give the Yankees an the edge in resigning players who would have stuck around for Torre.

Torre seems happy.

More to come on this situation.
