Joe Torre and the Yankees have parted ways after Torre refused a one-year, $5 million performance-based contract.
I don't blame Torre for anything. I thank him for contending for twelve years, winning four World Series, and carrying himself with class throughout. That said, I think the time had naturally come for a new voice. Every pro-Torre argument I'd heard the past two weeks sounded simply scared of the new. I don't know who will be the next great Yankee manager, but I'm willing to start looking.
