A while back, we informed you of Gary Sheffield's belief that Joe Torre treated certain players differently than others.
Sheffield believed that race entered into the equation as to how Torre showed respect for, and treated players.
Well, it seems that the Yankees brass listened hard to what Sheffield had to say.
Yesterday, it was reported that Joe Torre was done as the Yankees manager.
Torre had led the Yankees to the post season every year he managed. And 6 World Series appearances. Clearly, a record like that would warrant unparalleled job security.
But, the Yankees obviously had had enough of the type of behavior and disrespect in the clubhouse that Sheffield brought to light.
And, in a show of deference to Torre's tenure and record, the Yankees allowed Torre the face saving move of rejecting an 'offer'.
We applaud the Yankees on their stand and their show of support for Sheffield's accusations.
It's rare that we see a corporate sports conglomerate like the New York Yankees put justice and righteousness ahead of winning.
Maybe it is time to bring Willie Randolph back into the Yankee fold?
