JOE TORRE SPEAKS...WITH CLASS!

Why are so many people hating the for giving their former manager, , a sub-par contract offer? Watch and listen to his news conference from Friday and you will know why...class. Did he bash Brian Cashman who got the players that couldn't perform? No. Did he attack the Boss for his way of leadership? No. Did he complain about players that didn't hit and pitch when needed? No. That's classy. Joe showed the world and a generation of Yankee fans how to handle a tough situation and handle it with dignity and grace. He knew what the offer was from George and the boys, and wanted to look in their eyes to get a feel for where he really stood. I respect that. Maybe there isn't a place for Joe Torre on the team any longer, but there will always be a place in the heart of the Yankee fan and the memories of a generation. To borrow a phrase from Ron Burgundy, Stay Classy Joe Torre!
