Torre Out As Yank's Manager
The Joe Torre era has ended for the New York Yankees, as the skipper turned down a 1-year deal worth $5M with $3M worth of incentives. The deal was $2.5M less than Joe made last season, most likely the reason he left. Should be quite a big turn for the Yankees, as Mariano Rivera has said that he will pend his decision on a return for the simple fact if Torre was managing. Therefore, this means that the Yankees will most likely be without their star skipper and closer. On the flip side, it looks like Joe Girardi will get the job he's been waiting for in New York.
