Say it ain't so, Joe!

Longtime Yankee's manager Joe Torre walked away from an "insulting" offer of $5million a year salary. But he's getting the last laugh.

Today he accepted an offer from the LA Dodgers to be their manager for $4.3 million a year.

Wait. That doesn't make sense!

Torre was hired by Los Angeles to succeed Grady Little on Thursday, taking the job two weeks after walking away from the New York Yankees.

The winningest manager in postseason history, Torre moved from one storied franchise to another, agreeing to a three-year, $13 million contract.

Notice how I took the high road on all the Grady Little jokes.
