Here’s Joe Girardi’s postgame interview. There were mostly baseball questions (Posada, Bruney, Hughes, Melancon) but a few on A-Rod, the crowd reaction to A-Rod and his cousin. It runs for about seven minutes:
The Associated Press just reported that the Yankees have ordered A-Rod to keep his cousin away from ballparks for the rest of the season.
Said Girardi: “That situation has been addressed and I’ll just leave it at that.”
According to the AP, Rodriguez acknowledged that he made a mistake. His cousin, Yuri Sucart, is the man who smuggled the anabolic steroid Primobolan to the United States from the Dominican Republic from 2001-03.
