Joe Torre: Alex Rodriguez's teammates called him 'A-Fraud'

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Joe Torre's new book out to be a hot read around the Yankees spring training facility. But it definitely doesn't paint a very pretty picture of Torre's final years as manager in the Big Apple.

Among the highlights in "The Yankee Years":

  • Torre claims Alex Rodriguez's teammates cleverly called him "A-Fraud."
  • That A-Fraud developed an "obsession" with teammate Derek Jeter. (????)
  • That A-Fraud asked for a personal clubhouse attendant to run errands for him.
  • That General Manager Brian Cashman never relayed Torre's wish for a two-year contact to team management.
Apparently a change of venues and a trip to the NLCS with the Los Angeles Dodgers has done little to sooth Torre's bad feelings.
