MLB, Joe Torre

Joe Torre compared George Steinbrenner to his abusive father

No one will ever confuse me with a George Steinbrenner fan. Honestly, I think the man is a cancer to Major League Baseball, and his lasting legacy will be as the man who crippled the game and economically brought it to its knees, thanks to his free-spending, economically insane ways. And from everything I've ever heard, he's also not the most pleasant man in the world

However, I think Joe Torre took it a bit too far, when he and his wife compared Steinbrenner to Torre's father, who threw his wife down the stairs when she was pregnant with the baby who would grow up to be the beloved World Series-winning manager with the Yankees.

I'm not saying Steinbrenner is (or has EVER been) a good guy. But seriously, Joe?
