06:18 AM ET 01.27 | Alex Rodriguez told friends Monday that he is "not bothered at all" by the reports that Joe Torre apparently took some shots at him in his forthcoming book, and dismissed talk of an "A-Fraud" persona or any Derek Jeter obsession as old news that no longer applies to his standing in the Yankee clubhouse. "He laughed at the stuff because he is so beyond all of that," one person close to A-Rod said Monday. "Personally he feels like he's in a great space in his life and felt very comfortable last year in the clubhouse and with his relationship with his teammates." As for Torre, A-Rod indicated that anything his former manager may say about him couldn't hurt him because, as one friend put it, "He doesn't feel like he had any real relationship with (Torre)." In fact, people close to A-Rod say that he heard Torre characterized him as "a pretty boy" to his confidants during the four years they were together as player and manager, that Torre's close relationship with Jeter kept him from ever warming up to A-Rod.
