A-Rod has grudge against Torre

Joe Torre The Yankees visit Dodger Stadium and former manager Joe Torre this weekend, but it doesn't look like it's going to be a warm and fuzzy reunion for Torre and Alex Rodriguez.

"Business as usual," Rodriguez told the New York Post. "I am not going to get into that."

That's in strong contrast to Rodriguez's Yankees teammates, who have spoken glowingly this week of their former manager, who brought four titles to the Bronx and now manages the Dodgers.

Of course, his teammates didn't take the beating Rodriguez did in Torre's candid book "The Yankee Years," in which Torre revealed that teammates called Rodriguez "A-Fraud" and discussed Rodriguez's seemingly obsessive interest in Derek Jeter.

"I am sorry to hear that because I didn't think I had a bad relationship with Alex at all," Torre said when told of Rodriguez's apparent grudge. 

"I don’t think I violated anything with Alex [in the book]. I am sorry if he feels that way."

Rodriguez isn't the only one at odds with Torre over the book. Yankees GM Brian Cashman, for one, hasn't spoken to Torre since the book came out.

Grow up A-Rod!

Every former player under Torre is fine with him ... except him?  Big shocker there!  Yes they called him A-Fraud (why not?) and he is clearly obsessed with Jeter and has been since 1996.  So now he is trying to be the loner who brushes this off while acting all "whatever' about it?  

Nice try Jacko!
