I'm holding my tongue on Joe Torre's book because it's still unclear what he has really said and what he hasn't.
No matter what though, it's clear that he has made negative comments about his players and the Yankees. Why tarnish those years? The answer is money.
If these comments are true Torre really should be ashamed. He showed himself to be above it all during his time with the Yankees and is an all-time favorite of Yankee fans for his success, but also his class. I for one am pretty disappointed.
