|ESPN is reporting that the Yanks offered Torre a deal worth $5 mil (plus $3 in incentives) to stay on for the 2008 season and he has turned it down.
What the hell?
Did NOT see that one coming.
I guess he's had enough of Big Stein jerking him around year after year....?
My first thought was, good for Joe! They (management peeps) have shown little respect for him over the past few years, and this latest affair - keeping him waiting in the wings for over a week - was just too much.
Then I thought, damn, I really hope Joe isn't doing this to try to get more money. He's better than that. Unless, of course, Boras is HIS agent somehow, in which case it all makes sense.
Let's blame Boras regardless. It's more fun.
