We can hear Michael Kay already. "Everyone thinks he's St. Joe, but he's not", etc. Joe Torre has a new book, with Tom Verducci, 'The Yankee Years", coming out at the beginning of February. In it he takes shots at Alex Rodriguez, Brian Cashman, and George Steinbrenner, to name just a few.
On A-Rod - his teammates often referred to him as "A-Fraud" and he was obsessed with his rivalry with Derek Jeter. Brian Cashman - Less than loyal and betrayed Torre "on several fronts". Torre was particularly unhappy with Cashman's lack of support during the post 2007 fiasco/contract negotiation. George Steinbrenner - Knew of Joe Torre's prostate cancer diagnosis before Torre could tell him. Torre was stunned by this.
Maybe this book was cathartic for Torre, and we know he loves money, but we're not big on tell all books. That being said, we'll probably read it.
Torre will be on David Letterman's show on February 3 and will be signing books that day at Yogi Berra's Museum.
