While the bad buzz on Torre’s book is permeating the web (even Buster Olney knocks him), we would like to stand up for Joe. Really people — Do you think they called Alex Rodriguez “A-Fraud?” Joe Torre obviously softened this for mass consumption. More likely tauntnames for A-Rod:
7. Showing Up Really Late To The Madonna Vagina Party-Rod
8. Pretty Boy
9. Scotty J (Philip Seymour Hoffman character in Boogie Nights. “Derek, look at my car.”)
10. Best Power Hitter of His Generation But We Still Don’t Want to Hang Out With You-Rod
Stay classy, Joe!
