A Sad Day…

…not altogether unexpected, but sad nonetheless…

Joe Torre has rejected an offer to return to the Yankees as manager for another season.

I expected that this was The Yankee Skipper’s final season in pinstripes, but over the past few days, I was caught up in the whirlwind of media speculation. I began to wonder…

We can speculate no more: Joe Torre is out as manager of the New York Yankees.

Thanks, Joe. You’ve worn the uniform well; you’ve done us all proud.

    Yes.
    I’m saddened by the way it ended, but I don’t resent the Yankees’ ownership for wanting results.

    After all, it’s their money.

    Still, I feel like we’ve lost a good friend.
