Joe Torre received an offer from the New York Yankees for 1 year/5 million dollars, plus 1 million dollars for each level of playoffs the Yanks reach.  If the Yanks made the WS is '08, he would have made 8 million dollars in 2009.

He turned it down.

I'm still pretty stunned here, but I feel very good for Joe Torre.  The man went out on his own terms.  He went out on top.

That said, it's a sad day for the New York Yankees.

What do you guys think?
