Joe Torre: There's Nothing Bad About Anyone In The Book


For the most part, the Larry King/Joe Torre interview last night was a big fat dud. Other than the fact that Torre stood by what he wrote in the book, there was nothing earth-shattering about it. Click here to view an excerpt.

Well, wait a minute. At the very end of the show, Larry King's kids (at least, I'm assuming that's who they were) came onto the set and one of them asked Torre a question: What would happen if Bobby Abreu signed with the Dodgers? Meaning, would there be tension between him and Abreu because of the book?

The show was about to go off the air and there was barely time for an answer, thanks to how slowly the kid asked the question. But Torre managed to provide an answer that to me was very telling. He said, and I'm paraphrasing: "There's nothing bad about Abreu in the book." Then, very quickly, as if correcting himself: "There's nothing bad about anyone in the book.

Funny how he felt he had to add that last tidbit.
