If I were Joe Torre for a day...the very first thing I would do is to resign as Yankees manager and tell George Steinbrenner to kiss my hairy ass. Does this jackass truly think I would not have at least five offers to manage other teams next year??? Does he think he can find a better manager??? I only led this team to a 97-65 record and a playoff birth even though two of my stars were hurt for a good part of the season. A copy of my letter of resignation:
Dear Mr. Bossman,
You are an idiot. You spent tons and tons of money on an amazing roster and still cannot make your way to a World Series title. Take a look at the Tigers roster...not even close to ours in dollars, yet they are going to the World Series while we will be sitting at home polishing the trophies from years gone by. Get a clue, would you????????? Baseball is a game of passion, not possessions. Quit buying players like you would buy up property...sometimes it just doesn't work out the way you would like it to.
I am going to move on to bigger and better things. Good luck trying to find another manager to put up with your crap. Don't call me next year when you are 40-122.
p.s. A-rod needs to be traded.
