Well today was the day we had all been waiting for, the day we found out the future of Joe Torre and the Yanks. And with the outcome many are going to be sad, I know I am. Sad to see Joe Torre, arguably the best manager in baseball history, leave the team where he accomplished so much. 12 seasons, 12 playoff appearances, and 4 World Series Championships after joining the Yankees, the Joe Torre era is over.
He was offered a new one year deal, but it seemed like it was made to be rejected and thats exactly what happened. So Joe Torre left behind a team and fans which he loved, probably forever. He has said that he is still interested in managing, so it should be interesting to see where he might end up. Where ever or what ever success he has, he deserves it. The things which Torre has accomplished are some of the greatest in baseball history. He has earned a ton of respect from around the league and no matter what he does in the future he will always be remembered as one of the greatest to ever manage a team.
