Well, he’s rejected the offer from the Yankees for a 1 year-$5 million deal. Plus bonuses for playoffs.

At least they gave him an offer and he had the opportunity to reject it. At least it was his decision.

But still, while I wouldn’t sneeze at $5 million (much less any amount with some or even a few of those zeros), it’s kind of a sleazy offer. Bonuses for playoffs plus a pay cut? Going to a rewards-based system?

I can see the merit in that, but come on guys! It’s Joe Torre! Seriously!

At least it was his choice.

Too bad we won’t get to see him next year when we go.

Just hope Posada re-signs!


Edit: Here’s the story.

At least he went out with dignity and grace, which is more than can be said for most people!
