“Whatever his involvement is with this book, Joe Torre is the No.1 guy,” [Paul] Quantrill argued. “People may understand that he didn’t say that, but even being Joe Torre, being the greatest manager, blah-blah-blah, he’s walking a thin line. When you start exposing anything from the clubhouse in general, whether it’s about a d*ckhead like ‘the fraud,’ or anything, it doesn’t really matter. It’s that you opened up and said it.
“You are part of a book and guys don’t usually come out of it in a positive light, especially if they’re still active. To me, it’s pretty straightforward. It doesn’t matter if you’re a slapd*ck like Brian McNamee or Jose Canseco, or whether you’re Joe Torre. There are certain things, whether it be about Alex or whether it be about any player, the sanctity of the clubhouse is something that we all try to live by. It blew me away that an active manager is even involved in a book talking about the daily grind.”

Did Paul Quantrill just call Alex Rodriguez a…..?
Yeah, I think he did.
