The New York Post is reporting Joe Torre turned down the Yankees' relatively paltry offer of $5-million per year (plus $1-million for each playoff series win) to manage next season.
Depending on the veracity of Chuck D's favourite fishwrap, it seems like a slap in the face to a manager who, in a sense, deserved to either be fired outright if the Yankees didn't want him back for a 13th season, not have it framed like he was turning down an offer. No manager ever resigns.
