JOE GOES: PART 1.

PRIDE AND DIGNITY


I wonder if Yankees (mis)management understands how stupid they look today?


The 3 Steinbrenners and their committee of idiots made the premier organization in the history of professional sports look like a low budget scrub franchise.


Good for Joe! We might never know what was said in that room, but I hope "up your ass, George" was included in the conversation. Joe kept his pride, didn't swallow it.





"Torre extended the Yankees' season into October after general manager Brian Cashman's reliance on pitchers like Carl Pavano and Kei Igawa contributed to a 21-29 start, and he did it with eight rookie pitchers combining to make 50 starts."


If the Yankees didn't want Joe back, simply say so. Tell Joe they want to change direction, throw a chunk of change to the Joe Torre Foundation and plan Joe Torre Day.


But no, they chose to look like the asses that they are and offer a "contract" they knew he wouldn't accept.

The play-off bonuses were a joke. I can see Joe sitting in the dugout watching Kyle Farnsworth throw a meatball taking Joe's "bonus" with it over the outfield wall. "That was a $1 million gopher ball Ky, thanks!"

Randy Levine said "We thought that we need to go to a performance-based model, having nothing to do with Joe Torre's character, integrity or ability. We just think it's important to motivate people."


Motivate Joe Torre?! Are you saying that he wasn't trying to win so you need to motivate him? Are you saying he was just a chair warmer going along for the ride? DO YOU REALIZE WHAT YOU JUST SAID?!


Levine added: "It is now time for the New York Yankees to move forward."


By taking a major step BACKWARDS?
The the best quote from this moron, after he came from under George's desk, about the Yankees lack of what they call "success":

"We are all responsible"

Is that so, Randy? Then why do YOU and CASHMAN still have your jobs, or did you take a 30% pay cut?
JOE TORRE IS EXPECTED TO ADDRESS THE MEDIA TODAY.
