The end of an era

Nobody likes the Yankees (except their millions and millions of fans) but most people can agree Joe Torre is a classy guy. He must also be an adept ringleader, as he managed the Yankees to four world championships and a remarkable 12 straight playoff appearances in the circus that is Bronx baseball. Today he turned down the Yankees' insulting one-year, $2.5 million paycut offer, ending his tenure with the club. Good for you Joe, and good luck. You deserve more respect than that. And hey, anything to ruin Derek Jeter's day, right?

Good for Joe. 5 bucks says the Yankees don't win another championship for at least 10 years.
