Joe Torre: Kate Hudson "Relaxing" A-Rod

Kate Hudson is "relaxing" Alex Rodriguez, according to A-Rod's former manager. In an interview with "Extra," ex-Yankee skipper Joe Torre was asked if he thought Hudson, whom the Yankee third baseman began seeing earlier this year, had helped Rodriguez have a better season. "Somebody's relaxing him, that's all I can say," Torre replied with a smirk, "because he certainly looked like he enjoyed himself this year." Becoming more serious, Torre added, "I know how important baseball is to him. So whatever the reason, it seems to be working."
