PHIL HUGHES'S ELBOW BREATHES A SIGH OF RELIEF:

Torre Turns Down Yankees Offer (Tyler Kepner, 10/18/07, NY Times)

The Yankees offered Manager Joe Torre a one-year deal with a base salary of $5 million and the chance to make another $3 million in performance bonuses. But after 12-years and 12 postseason appearances (including four World Series titles), Torre turned it down.

Smart way to force him out and keep him from doing any more damage to the youngsters.

It was never the starters who were in danger from Joe, rather the bullpen.

May the Yanks be cursed with La Russa or as most like to call him La Genius.
