This post isn’t to reflect upon “what’s next” for the Yankees. That will come later.
But contrary to reports by the idiots at ESPN, Joe Torre cannot be fired. Why? He is no longer under contract. He can either be resigned, or the Yankees can sign someone else. Much like Posada cannot be released, because he is a free agent.
Nitpicking? Sure. But it is important, because Torre likely would not have been retained last year, except that the Big Stein didn’t want to pay two managers at once.
