First about the implication that he felt betrayed by Brian Cashman:
“I heard the word betrayed and I knew that it wasn’t part of the actual book,” Torre said in a telephone interview from Hawaii on Tuesday morning. “I can tell you this much: I know there’s stuff Brian and I disagreed on, and I had one perception and he had another, which, to me, there’s nothing wrong with that. We’re obviously two different people.”“As far as the betrayed thing, that’s the reason I called him,” Torre added. “I knew there was no word betrayed in there in regards to feeling that he left me out there somewhere.”
...“There’s stuff in there where, from my angle, I looked at it one way and I’m sure, from his angle, he probably looked at it a different way,”...About A-Rod:
“If you’ve been together with someone that long, it would be suspect if you did agree on everything,” Torre said on the telephone. “I told Brian that we’d always be friends. Whether we got along or not, one is the business side. The other is personal.”
“I don’t think I said anything about A-Rod that I didn’t say already,”About the contents of the book:
“Knowing that my name is on it, I know I’m going to have to answer for it,”...The article also mentions that Torre will be on Larry King Live on Friday to discuss the book.
“I’m comfortable with what I contributed to the book,” Torre said, “even though I’m probably going to get more credit or more blame than I deserve, whichever way you want to look at it.”
