Cashman Tells AROD To “Shut The F*ck Up”

In the latest news from the walking tabloid that is Alex Rodriguez, he has finally caused Brian Cashman to let down his guard on how he really feels about the former MVP.

When AROD first joined twitter, I could not have been happier. Everyone knew it was only a matter of time until he embarrassed the Yankees and himself over the widely popular social media outlet.

On Monday Cashman was asked about rumored reports that AROD was ready to start a rehab assignment which he answered replied with “He has not been cleared by our doctors to play in rehab games yet,” said Cashman. “He’s getting closer. There’s no doubt about it. But we don’t have a date for him to start playing games yet. It could be July 1. It could also be July 5 or maybe June 25.”

Now he did throw that June 25 date in there, but he was clearly saying that in a sarcastic tone to reporters as if to say nothing has been decided.

AROD has been on twitter roughly a month now and has stuck to posting brief messages with photos on the progress of his rehab down in Tampa. Yesterday he posted this…

Brian Cashman did not take a liking to this self proclaimed announcement that AROD is ready to start playing in games. His response when a reporter informed him of the tweet “You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, we will” Cashman said. “Alex should just shut the f— up. That’s it. I’m calling him now”

This is what Joe Girardi had to say regarding the matter and Yankee protocol on rehabbing players:

“There is always a chain of command with injuries,” Yankees manager Joe Giardi said after the Yankees’ 5-3 win on Tuesday. “And there has to be. That is the process. It goes through our training staff, our doctors, our GM and then it probably gets to me.”

Now Rodriguez released a statement stating that he is going to comply with whatever the Yankees want him to do and that the tweet was simply a form of excitement. Whatever the real reason was, whether it was to force the Yankees hand in allowing him to begin a rehab assignment or not, the front office is clearly not pleased.

With an ongoing investigation looming on AROD’s full involvement with the Miami Biogensis clinic, I’m sure the Yankees would love to keep him off the field. The only problem? The Yankees are so decimated by injuries that they need his bat in the line up.

Stay tuned for this story to further develop and be sure to follow AROD on twitter as he surely will provide us with another story shortly.

    Not a fan of A Rod, but the Yankees are just pissed off because they were so Stupid in renegotiating his contract for 275 mill, and didn’t and couldn’t ever get there moneys worth on such an overrated Jack ass like A- fraud!! Both losers!!

      Gotta remember Cashman never wanted to give him that extension in the first place, all on Steinbrenner for that move.

      AROD is going to continue to embarrass this franchise for as long as he’s ok the roster. Cashman is going to have to bite his tongue for the rest of his tenure. I’m not his biggest fan, but I bet years down the road Cashman writes a very insightful book full of the juicy details from his Yankees tenure.
