The Yankee Years

Remember way back before A-Rod's steroid test came out and Joe Torre's book was expected to be the big story? Well, I`ve had a nasty virus since Monday so I finished the book while laying in bed recovering. It was a good read but lacked the bombshells I was expecting. The Torre input seemed to be very limited. The quotes from him were sparse and not really all that insightful. Honestly, the former bullpen catcher, Mike Borzello, seemed to be a bigger part of the book than Torre.

Its a decent book about the years Torre was with the Yankees. However, its has little to separate it from the dozens of other books that will surely follow.
