Well, this is a shock

According to two newspaper reports, Torre blasts the team he managed to four World Series titles in a book set to be released Feb. 3.

Teammates frequently called Alex Rodriguez "A-Fraud," and the third baseman was obsessed over his rivalry with shortstop Derek Jeter, "The Yankee Years" reveals, according to the New York Daily News and New York Post.

Really? A-Rod is unpopular with teammates? I'm speechless.

The book was written by Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci after interviewing players and team employees, and a source told ESPN that the quotes are being "overblown," but still, this should make the Yankees a little more fun this year. And everyone knows how well Alex Rodriguez handles pressure and how little he cares about his public persona, so I'm sure this won't affect him at all.

Where can I comment?
