Torre in his own words

Thanks to sports editor Susie Arth for helping me get that first update up as soon as Torre finished speaking to the media. I’ve now braved the (really, really swirling) snow and am in a Starbucks on Broadway where they appear to have internet access.

Click below to hear what Torre had to say on a number of subjects, including the one it seems most of you guys were interested in hearing about: Violating clubhouse trust.

In short, Torre says he doesn’t believe he’s guilty of that at all. He even said there were things he left out of the book that were in earlier drafts because he was concerned about crossing that line. “I just wanted to write about my time with the Yankees,” he said, when asked about his motivation for the book. He said several times that his tenure in the Bronx was a “celebration” and mostly good times, but that he had to address the tougher times as well for it to be a complete story.

Listen for yourself. You’ll have more opportunities to hear Torre on radio and TV this afternoon and tomorrow.
