The Yankee Years is a book written by

Torre has received criticism for revealing certain things that went on in the clubhouse after he emphasized loyalty between Yankee personnel.[2] In the book, Torre said he felt that Cashman "betrayed" him in negotiations with the Yankees following the 2007 season. Torre also highlighted the fact that teammates had referred to Alex Rodriguez as "A-Fraud."

In response to the criticism, Torre said he was proud of the book and he did not violate the sanctity of the clubhouse.[3][4]
