More on the Torre book here…

Here’s an exerpt of a review written by Michiko Kakautani.

In “The Yankee Years,” Torre and the Sports Illustrated writer Tom Verducci — who collaborated on Torre’s 1997 memoir, “Chasing the Dream” — provide a lively chronicle of that historic era and the team’s depressing slide after 2001. There are two curious things about the book. One is that the volume is not a memoir but a third-person account, lacking anything resembling a personal voice and fleshed out with interviews with players like David Cone and Mike Mussina. The second is that it devotes less attention to the team’s remarkable run at the end of the millennium than to its subsequent fall from grace…

So here we are, after a full day of allegations and denials and angry statements, we might not get everything we need from the book. The best thing for us to do is reserve judgment until we read the book.
