Star Yankee players ponder future after ALDS loss
Some Yankees are reconsidering their future with the team after falling to Cleveland in the first round of the playoffs.
Among those with a cloudy future is Manager Joe Torre, who may be out of a job according to owner George Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner issued a statement over the weekend that said if the Yankees didn?t win the first-round series, Torre would probably not be brought back as manager. No decision has been made.
It is also up in the air whether Alex Rodriguez will return for a fifth season with the team. He will have 10 days following the conclusion of the World Series to decide if he wants to opt out of the last three years of his 10-year, $252 million contract.
General Manager Brian Cashman has said if A-Rod opts out, the Yankees will not try to sign him. A-Rod has hinted he would like to return. ?I love New York?.hopefully things work out,? he said.
Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Roger Clemens are all free agents. Andy Pettitte has an option to return for 2008, but has not made a decision.
