Interesting. Who knew this is how it would turn out?

Quote
Joe Torre, a future Hall of Famer who guided the Yankees to four world championships and six pennants while making the postseason in every one of his 12 seasons at the helm, turned down a one-year contract offer to continue as manager, the team announced on Thursday....

Speculation about a replacement for Torre will most certainly center on bench coach Don Mattingly, former catcher and Marlins manager Joe Girardi, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and perhaps coaches such as Tony Pena and Larry Bowa.
It'll be interesting to see their decision. I'm especially wanting to see where La Russa ends up. Someone will hire him, that's for certain. Just as long as it's not the Cubs....

Sigh . . . all things must pass away.  Cry Farewell, Joe.

Stand up guy.  Good thing he finally decided not to work for the forces of the Evil Empire.

He needs to hire Kosmo Kramer...a good fit

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

First Joe, then A-Rod, now this about Andy Pettitte declining his $16M option with the Yankees:

Well, it appears that he has not permanently said no. Pettite appears to be weighing only retirement or returning to the Yankees, and the Yankees are basically leaving the decision up to him.

Quote
Last week, however, Pettitte was still weighing retirement or playing. "It probably wouldn't be real honorable for me not to do anything other than if I shut it down, shut it down or go back and play for the New York Yankees," he told KRIV television....

Cashman said Pettitte called him and they spoke for 10-20 minutes. Pettitte has a standing offer of $16 million he can accept at any time. Cashman wouldn't discuss whether the team would entertain a new deal.
