Please Come to KC Joe Torre

10/20 Update: Joe's not coming to KC. 44-year-old Trey Hillman was hired by the Royals. He has never played, coached or managed in the majors. But he was always successful as a minor league manager, and his Nippon Ham Fighters are playing in the Japan Series for the second consecutive year. Sorry Joe.. welcome to KC Trey!
10/18: According to this article:
Joe Torre rejected a one-year contract offer to return as manager of the New York Yankees, turning down Thursday a deal that would have meant a pay cut unless the team won the 2008 World Series.
And in a totally unrelated KC Star article:
The Royals appear to be closing in on a choice for their new manager — and it could include a Japanese twist. Sources close to the process indicate a decision could be announced early next week, before the start of the World Series, and say the club is looking at someone currently managing in Japan.
I am not sure that the Royals can afford Joe.. but I guy can dream can't he J
