Brian Cashman Tells Alex Rodriguez to Pipe Down; New York Yankees Fed Up With A-Rod
You can sometimes tell when a player has gotten under his boss’s skin. However, it’s usually not as obvious as New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman made it on Thursday. Alex Rodriguez has brought a gigantic doom cloud to the “Bronx Bombers,” so you really can’t blame Cashman for being a little upset with No. 13.
With that being said, no professional should tell one of his employees to shut his yap in such a profane manner. This was the gem that Cashman gave a local radio station when talking about Rodriguez’s decision to express his excitement to come back to the Yankees’ lineup via Twitter:
“Alex should just shut the (expletive) up.”
It should be noted that the expletive Cashman used rhymes with the word duck. Even Rodriguez didn’t deserve this kind of cruel treatment and besides, what kind of general manager tells his players to shut up? This is a prime example of a superstar butting heads with the front office for reasons rather trivial.
Winning heals all and relationships like this one are easily fixed when Ws begin to appear on the box scores. For example, these two surely had issues in 2009, but the team was too busy winning the MLB World Series to worry about cute skirmishes like the current feud between Cashman and A-Rod.
Early reports have Rodriguez making a rehab start within the next week — A-Rod is only 115 home runs shy of Barry Bonds’ historic 762 bombs.
