Joe Torre: Retribution

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?

vindication for the Sheff!

Gern said...

Everyone knows that Gary Sheffield is the voice of reason when it comes to baseball. If the Yankees don't immediately make him the head of the search for a new manager, then they should disband the Yankees immediately. Short of that, they need to hire a black GM, black head coach and make sure the lineup is 100% black players. All the employees at Yankee Stadium need to be black also. If none of this happens, then it proves Sheffield is right! And righteous.

and then burn the stadium down!

Gern said...

Dave, they are already going to burn the stadium down, or blow it up. Probably because Sheff told them to. Then the brothers are going to burn down their own neighborhoods (again), while everyone else sits around and laughs. And nothing changes....

since when is burning down Yankee Stadium a bad thing? can someone give the brothers directions to Foxboro, MA too ?! and Irvine, TX ?! burn baby burn.

censored said...

excellent post...and you are correct if winning is no longer the most important thing for the yankees then they should bring back willie randolph...willie was responsible for the biggest choke job in sports since lattrell sprewell got hold of pj carlesimo. But that is the culture today...a white man like torre can win for 12 years and get let go whereas a black man like randolph (working under lesser expectations) can be given a pass for one of the worst managerial jobs in baseball history. Willie Randolph, living proof of how affirmative action cripples organizations.

"a white man like torre can win for 12 years using minority talent"

censored said...

and again you pull out these jackass thesis'...you are racist scum. If Sheffields comments had anything to do with Torre being let go, then why isnt Sheffield still a yankee? why wasnt torre fired last year? you make up alot of crap and it just shows how stupid you are. You know nothing about baseball..you prove that time and time again. But I eagerly await your posting about how it was the white mans fault that CC Sabathia choked in the biggest games of his life. Just funny though how that fat bastard never choked on all those extra meals he eats.

"If Sheffields comments had anything to do with Torre being let go, then why isnt Sheffield still a yankee? "

Sir, maybe you didn't get the memo...Sheff was unhappy with the team and wanted out.

That's why.

And, as for why Torre wasn't let go last year....um....when did Shef bring the facts to light? Yea.....ok.

And you call us stupid....

He was uncomfortable in the clubhouse and with the treatment he witnessed. Hence, he wanted gone. And he is gone.

"But I eagerly await your posting about how it was the white mans fault that CC Sabathia choked in the biggest games of his life."

Ummm...sir, we fail to see what CC has to do with Shef and Torre.

But, well...we guess coming from you, the fact that you were able to mention another baseball player kind of relates to the topic....so, well done.

and you think this thread was about baseball????

who's the real dummy?

censored said...

Sir, maybe you didn't get the memo...Sheff was unhappy with the team and wanted out.

Obviously your racism blinds you to the facts of the case...Sheffield was openly petitioning the yankees for a contract extension...even going so far as to have a private meeting with Steinbrenner to try to convince him to extend the contract. When the yankees refused to extend Sheff beyond the year remaining on his deal, he began to whine and cause trouble just like he has done his entire career. So the facts are this...the yankees refused to offer a contract extension to Sheff and traded him.
An extremely smart move as the steroid use seems to have caught up with the physically frail Sheffield. On the flip side, the yanks DID offer Torre a contract with guaranteed money that would have kept him the highest paid manager in baseball..HE is the one who chose to walk away...Again fact doesnt much matter to you, only racist agendas...which is why you quickly shut up with all your willie randolph talk. Sheff lead the tigers from an american league championship one year to missing the playoffs the next..and willie's team couldnt even beat the overrated dontrelle willis in the last week of the season to make the playoffs.

I was going to mention Dwight Gooden but as we have all learned from the brilliant sheffield, joe torre makes black players feel uncomfortable and treats them wrongly. I guess he does that even when he is saving their careers as well.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Sheffield was openly petitioning the yankees for a contract extension"

Sir, you mean that your hatred of Negroes and hatred of The Truth blinds you from reality...he wanted more money as compensation for the uncomfortable clubhouse environment created by Torre...the Boss refused...Shef moved on...

And?

Tripod said...

" I guess he does that even when he is saving their careers as well."

yes, censored...all those minority players on the yankees roster over the Torre years had their careers saved...jeter, posada, rivera, bernie, etc etc...all had their careers saved...LOL...you are a lost soul, man...you hate anything that ain't white...you are in for a miserable future...cause this country is well on the way to no longer being white..

while I really don't see where censored sees any racism in the post, I do have to ask the following question: is there any evidence that the dismissal of Torre was linked to his shoddy treatment of Sheffield or is this just typical George steinbrenner in action?

my personal take is that

censored said...

you are just flat out stupid. If he hated the environment in NY he clearly knew that he could get the same money in other places (which he did) The fact is that Sheff the whiny bitch didnt get the extension he wanted from the yankees and then requested a trade...it had nothing to do with torre..as much as you would like to make the issue race. Sheff had his feelings hurt that he yankees didnt want him long term so he started making accusations after he left...kinda like a woman who gets dumped and then says she never loved the guy anyway...Sheffield is clearly the woman.

you are new to this post...how it works here is that NOIS doesnt need proof...all he has to do is assert that whitey mistreats blacks and that is the reason blacks cant take responsibility for their actions. Sheffield is long forgotten by the yankees and is not an issue in the current Torre situation. Sheffield actually went to the tigers and made them worse than last year.

tripod..obviously your parent didnt teach you any reading comprehension. It is Sheffields assertion that Torre treated black players differently....your post proves the point that in fact minorities have thrived under torre...so thank you for making NOIS look foolish for supporting the idiotic rants of gary sheffield.

censored said...

Why do you completely ignore the willie randolph comments?? A black manager can fail miserably and keep his job because he is black...affirmitive action is mediocrity in action.

Al_Sharpton's_Banana_Hammock said...

"Sheff had his feelings hurt that he yankees didnt want him long term so he started making accusations after he left."

no.

he held his tongue as long as he could. he talked with other players who felt the same way. and he was compelled to speak up.

it's called courage.

no, my post proves that minorities gave Torre 12 staight playoff appearances.

censored is the resident 'white power' guy...he can't stand the fact that there is an internet where opinions and truths that aren't dictated by the white media exists. so, he comes to this blog daily and makes racist comments and tries to ignore the realities of America.

look at some of his old comments. he has had the ignorance to actually say that 250 years of slavery has had NO impact on the black community today.

you can pretty much discount everything he says as uniformed and simply a racist attack on real Americans.

A. managed a team that won its division this season and
B.

those minorities you refer to are hard working latinos...they helped torre win because they care more about winning then their own egos. Sheffield is a selfish player and that is why he cant stay on a team more than a few seasons.

censored said...

If things were so bad with the yankees under torre then Sheff would not have pushed so hard for an extension...his past history proves that there will always be a team willing to overlook his bad attitude and pay him his market value. Those are the facts but the facts dont play into your racist agenda and take away your trump card...the blame whitey game.

censored said...

As for you all calling me racist...excuse the phrase but aint that the pot calling the kettle black...use of the word cracker is used more times in these posts than anything else. Every black failure is not due to racism..although that offers the easiest excuse. I never said slavery plays no role but what i have said is your community is in a shambles and as long as the excuse culture exists so will failure.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"I never said slavery plays no role "

Sir, that is an out right lie.

You, on more than one occassion have flat out said that there is no existing relationship between problems in the Negro community today and the 250 year enslavement and ensuing institutionalized racism of the Negro.

You have said it on more than one occassion.

Now, you try to back away.

You are a liar. Plain and simple.

You are a liar who hates Negroes and takes every opportunity to come on here multiple times throughout the day to spew your venomous hatred and ill feelings.

We see you for what you are.

The readers and operators of this blog have had enough of your lies, false accusations...and bigotry fueled hatred of Negroes.

You have added nothing to the discussion on any thread. The redundant theme of Anti-Negro speech in each and every one of your posts has reached a peak.

Frankly, we feel that your presence here produces a positive effect.

People of all colors, race and religion can read your bile filled statements and understand what ignorant hatred is. You provide an example of what a closed mind can provide the individual. You provide an example of how an individual can lose sight of what this country stands for, and only focus on holding others down.

Unfortunately, our readers have spoken.

Your presence is no longer required here.

We won't ban you or delete your droppings, however.

We are simply serving notice that the readers and writers here will no longer respond to your hate fueled ignorance.

Should you feel repentant, and choose to issue a retraction of your lies. Or admit that you are a liar and ask for help in combatting your racist feelings.

We will listen.

Until then, best of luck as you drown in a world that will soon no longer be white.

Whenever your postings are proven wrong by fact you cry like a girl. It is easy to prove you wrong because everything you write is swayed solely by race. Every wrong is the fault of a white person somehow. I get that this is your schtick but you do nothing to truly advance your people. I expose you for the racist you are...you hate white people, that is obvious but you dont have the guts to say it so you veil it in these racially charged posts. You sir are exactly the thing you say you despise...that makes you a hypocrite. You are willing to take people at their word as long as that word is anti-white or blames white people for the ills of your people. I have no hate for you...just pity...as your house crumbles around you...you worry about what curtains to hang...you are misguided.
I questioned your inclusion of Willie Randolph in your post but yet you make no mention of it again...because again that is what you do..when you are exposed you immediately start yelling racist..I dont blame you because that is your easiest excuse.

it's typical, tho. he has to justify his hatred of blacks to himself somehow.

you gotta laugh at the things he points out as 'facts'. they are his own opinions, but since he is white, he considers them 'facts'. and nois comes out with actual quotes and articles in his posts, but this guy disputes them as not being facts.

must be nice to live in your own little world like this guy does.

i still can't figure out why he turns everything into a racial thing tho. or why he constantly demands that his silly, off topic questions be answered and become the focus of the thread.

it must be joke. no one could be this stupid on purpose.

censored said...

But, the Yankees obviously had had enough of the type of behavior and disrespect in the clubhouse that Sheffield brought to light.

Honestly can anyone truthfully say that this douche doesnt race bait? The FACTS are Torre was given an ultimatum..win the ALDS or get fired...after thinking it over after they lost the yankees mgt. still decided to offer him a 5 MILLION DOLLAR one year contract, which torre rejected because he knew if the team got off to a slow start next year he would hear rumblings about being fired (the yanks would have little to lose because they only committed for the one year). NOIS presents as fact that the words of Gary Sheffield had something to do with this..again with no source...just to race bait. He ignores how minorities have thrived under Torre's leadership and ignores that Willie Randolph credits him as his mentor...why? because the sheffield thing allows him to race bait. The Sheffield comments allow him to forge ahead with his racist agenda. He just doesnt have the guts to acknowledge it.

This is too funny.

actually if he reached the incentives in the contract it would have been for 500 grand more than last year..so read up dopey. Even without incentives the contract was worth significantly more than any other managers deal...so yes the yankees were dealing with a financial edge knowing that no other team could even match their pre-incentive offer. The fact that the yankees put those incentive clauses in shows what is most important to them...WINNING. Sheffields words played no role whatsoever...we all truly know that but it isnt any fun without your race baiting. The yankees didnt want to guarantee 8 mil for next year unless they got to the world series...again these are things called FACTS which you choose to ignore..and it is why you are ignorant.

"he's the typical know it all white guy. can't stand admitting that black men are correct."

his insecurities are completely exposed here.

anyone with any sense will occassionally admit that they aren't always right.

he can't do that. he is so insecure in himself that he resorts to lies, hypocrisy and half-truths as protection against the clear fact that he has been proven wrong by virtually every commentor on here.

To admit that a black man is correct would be a verification of his insecurities.

censored is lost in himself. the reality is that he doesn't hate blacks.

he hates himself.

and the way he manifests it is by continually accepting intellectual beatdowns on the internet. over and over. looking more the ass with every post.

but, whatever floats your boat.

another one on the chin for ol' censored.

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?

Can you clarify? are you saying because winning is not the most important thing to the yankees anymore they should bring in the managerial failure willie randolph to run the team? I honestly dont understand why you are disrespecting willie.

uncommon sense said...

"anytime you know you are wrong you just yell racist"

no other team puts such a premium on winning like the yankees. Show me another team that would pay a manager 7.5 mil in the first place. There is no doubt that several in the front office didnt want Torre back..but it was because they havent won a championship in 7 years, not because of sheffield. They still offered him 5 mil with the chance to make 8 mil...if the clubhouse was in chaos there would have been no offer....again facts mean nothing to you.

Now, after the clubhouse is in shambles, as sheffield pointed out, the yankees resort to incentives to try to force Torre to clean up the mess he made.

If the clubhouse is in shambles then why did every big name player on the team go on record as wanting Torre to come back...including minority free agents to be who said if torre didnt come back they may not either...surely if he made players feel uncomfortable they would welcome a change and not actively petition for his return. Oh wait, one of those players who wanted him back is Jeter..but he doesnt count because as sheffield says "he is not all-the-way black".
Again i know facts dont matter to you...just race baiting but i will put them out there anyway.

nice job censored. you took what was an insightful and unbiased look at the demise of Joe Torre, and turned it into a racial name calling match and people trying to prove who has more money on the internet.

You truly are ignorance personified.

As for your assertion that the post was unbiased, well, that just proves that you can read words but not really understand what they mean. The post stated as fact that Sheffields comments played a role in Torre not coming back (clubhouse issues, etc.) Unbiased would mean he would point out all the facts of the situation. I question this by pointing to quotes by current players stating their desire for him to return (several minority players by the way). Surely if Torre managed over a fractured clubhouse players would not defend him. But NOIS neglects any facts and decides that race had to be the issue. When you bring up Jeters support of Torre that doesnt count. I can guarantee that NOIS would label jeter "all the way black" if he ripped Torre. I understand this is what NOIS does, his perception is that the white media only presents the white side of things and thus discriminates against blacks...his answer is to do the same thing, only to whites. That doesnt make him innovative, it just makes him a hypocite.
But again can anyone clear up the point about willie randolph...Nois states that winning isnt the most important thing to the yankees anymore so they should bring willie back into the fold...why the disrespect of a black manager...is NOIS just really a self loathing negro?

that's rich. coming from YOU.

look, we all know that you live in a world divided into black and white. you've made your racist outlook clear. you may disagree with NOIS and the commentors here. but that doesn't make THEM racist.

YOU are the racist. you have never even denied it. in fact, you revel in it.

You are the one that gets caught up in every post NOIS makes, and can't see the meaning behind it. You see Negro and lose your mind.

The reality is, this post has NOTHING to do with black/white or sheffields comments.

Read it again.

No, YOU decided that it was the issue.

Read the post and figure out what the issue REALLY is.

what point about willie randolph?

you didn't make any.

censored said...

Really, man are you dumb, the whole thesis of the post is that Sheffields comments about torre treating minority players differently was the reason the yankees made him a less than stellar contract offer. So genius, dont be so vague, if i need to be enlightened tell me how this post doesnt play the race card by ignoring all the FACTS surrounding the Torre situation?


"But again can anyone clear up the point about willie randolph..."

Moron...read the question again...this time slowly so you get it...the point i was questioning was the point being made by NOIS....READ the post...i was asking for clarity about the idea that because the yankees dont value winning above all else they should bring back willie randolph...Based on willies terrible job managing the mets one could gather that the only reason NOIS says the yankees should bring willie back is because he is black.

soundtech, you truly are not that bright, show me where anything pointed to sheffields words having an effect on the yankees decision...why do you ignore all the facts i brought up and the support the players have made public? Now throw back some comments at me about how i am racist so you can dodge the question you ignorant fool.

ultrasound tech said...

"READ the post"

i read the post.

nois seemed to be questioning how the yankees could let a guy with his record go....that seemed to be the point. the other stuff is just used to rile up morons like YOU.

Am I right here, NOIS?

ultrasound tech said...

"why do you ignore all the facts i brought up and the support the players have made public?"

WHAT FACTS???

because a couple of old vets who are used to Torre's ways don't want to be bothered with moving and going to new teams in the twilight of their careers???

wow, that is just hard as rock evidence, isn't it?

i don't have to call you a racist. every comment you make proves you are one.

LOL. the man that claims that institutional racism and slavery have played ZERO role on the state of black america today is calling someone ignorant???

HAHAHAHAHA.

Talk about a complete lack of currency.

But the words of Gary Sheffield instead...that is evidence? I dont even understand how you could be so dumb. Derek Jeter is the captain of the team...an african american...and he said he wanted torre back. NOIS said that torres ways divided the clubhouse...then why would any minorities come out defending him so hard. Those veterans you talk about are some of the best players in baseball...who happen to be free agents and could choose to go to any team....yet they specifically said that KEEPING torre would sway them to stay. You have no clue at all...maybe instead of taking NOIS' word for everything you should find some facts first. Nowhere is it documented that Torre's treatment of players factored into the contract he was offered....this is just race baiting by NOIS...his specialty

censored said...

now come back with your best defense....call me a racist..anyone who doesnt buy into the "whoa is me, i cant do anything myself attitude" is racist.

Malcom Hex said...

"here we go again...slavery"

why do you keep trying to ignore this?

people are simply bringing back your own words to you.

YOU are the one that awhile back said these things. It is only reasonable that they be brought up to completely discredit you.

And it works.

You have ZERO credibility in any discussion of race.

You have no one to blame but your racist self.

Why should anyone take you seriously or give your opinion on race any value when you have gone out of your way to say ridiculous things that easily destroy your credibility?

You made your bed. Lie in it.

"Why should anyone take you seriously or give your opinion on race any value when you have gone out of your way to say ridiculous things that easily destroy your credibility?"

EXACTLY!

this guy, in the past has said the black community is completely responsible for each and every issue they face and that there is NO connection between 250 years of slavery and institutionalized racism and oppression and ANY problems that face blacks today.
And then, he expect to engage in racial discussion and have his opinion taken seriously? Particularly when, in each and every discussion he tries to half-ass slant everything that NOIS says? Please...why would anyone care that censored thinks that there was no race problem in the yankees clubhouse...censored has already made it clear that he thinks there has NEVER been a race problem in AMERICA...lol....but, he is quick to dismiss the statements of a reasonable black man who WAS in the clubhouse...whatever. Let him ramble on with his fringe opinions...the mainstream media is behind NOIS on this one.

HAAHAAA...moronic new lows..shine my shoes while you down there. So you are saying that sheff is a reasonable black man and jeter is not...why because that way you can use the race card...keep talking your trash but that is all it is...lean on your crutch...your failure is in no way your own...couldnt be cause we had slavery 250 years ago...ignore facts in place of slanted opinion...it has gotten your people far since the 60's....running in quicksand.

madd hatter said...

"your failure is in no way your own"

what failures? i'm a success.

If I spent my work day being race baited on some obscure blog, then maybe I'd be a failure. DOH!

Malcom Hex said...

"couldnt be cause we had slavery 250 years ago"

actually, we had slavery 150 years ago...dipshit. But, of course, the facts are NEVER your strong point.

we had 250 years OF slavery.

and, according to you...that has had no negative effect on this country. none. zero zip. 250 years of it, and the day the emancipation proclamation was signed, everything was peachy and great.

you are a mess, man.
