Just What The Dodgers Needed: Torre "Tell-All" Slams Steinbrenners

ESPN is reporting that a new book on Joe Torre by Tom Verducci will reputedly go after the Steinbrenners, though honestly it doesn't much sound like anything we hadn't heard or imagined before; after all, the contract negotiations, in which the Yankees refused to make more than a one-year deal for Torre's services, had the air of a failing marriage.
His Dodgers deal came two weeks after having walked away from the Yankees when they offered a one-year contract worth $5 million plus $3 million in performance incentives he termed "an insult.''

"I don't think incentives are necessary," he said then. "I've been here a long time and I've never needed to be motivated. Plus, in my [previous] contract, I get a million-dollar bonus if we do win the World Series, so that's always been there."

Labels: , ,

i don't think the book will anywhere near the impact on the Dodgers/LA media than it will have in New York. This is mostly an NY story, especially the A-Rod angle.

The move to AZ will be the big theme next month, and it'll be long forgotten by then.
