Good for him! As sad as it makes me, I wish him the best. The Yankees organization has been dicking with him all year, and insult him with a low ball offer.

I'd love to see him either A) Manage here in St Louis, or B) Replace Tim McCarver on Fox broadcasts.

I'm not a Yankees fan at all, but I like Torre, and I'm glad he said no. At least he went out on his terms, and he doesn't have to go through another year of wondering whether or not his job is safe.

I expected them to ask him back, and then fire him a month into the season if things didn't go right for the team.

He'd be crazy not to retire at this point. There's nowhere to go but down, even for a guy who hasn't hoisted a trophy in seven years. Tony's staying in St. Louis, so a return to the Cardinals isn't in the works either.

I personally think he should have walked away when Steinbrenner threatened his job last year...and the year before, but that's just me. Better late than never, at least. Joe certainly deserves better than the way he's been treated in the last few years.

More significantly, this puts a nail in the coffin of the Yankees as we know them. I don't think Rivera's coming back if Torre isn't in the dugout.

79%. I'll consider that a success.
