Cashman comments on Rodriguez situation

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 24, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here’s the statement from Brian Cashman as passed along by the Yankees…

“I heard via a text message this afternoon from Alex Rodriguez that he had retained a doctor to review his medical situation. In media reports, we have since learned that the doctor in question has acknowledged that he did not examine Mr. Rodriguez and that he was not retained to do a comprehensive medical examination of Mr. Rodriguez. Contrary to the Basic Agreement, Mr. Rodriguez did not notify us at any time that he was seeking a second opinion from any doctor with regard to his quad strain.

“As you know, it is the Yankees’ desire to have Alex return to the lineup as soon as possible. And we have done everything to try and accomplish this.

“As early as Friday, July 12, when I suggested to Alex that we move his rehab from Tampa to Triple-A Scranton (at Buffalo), Alex complained for the first time of “tightness” in his quad and therefore refused to consent to the transfer of his assignment. Again, last Sunday, Alex advised that he had stiffness in his quad and should not play on Sunday or Monday. We sent Alex to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for an MRI which evidenced a Grade 1 strain.

“As always, we will follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Basic Agreement, and will again re-evaluate Alex in Tampa tomorrow, as our goal is to return him to the lineup as soon as he is medically capable of doing so.”

    Soriano can help.

    Some of the games we were losing; were winnable….but look at the current line-up….a few hits here & there and we’ve got some wins…..and closer to the post-season.

    We’re hanging in there with ‘that line-up’…..

    Soriano can help.

    Would like to think Cashman is working on some additional (maybe rental) bats.

    Talking to The Record, Dr. Gross said he reviewed Rodriguez’s MRI as a favor.

    “I thought it would be fun,” Dr. Gross said. “It’s my five minutes of fame.”

    And it seems those five minutes might have revealed exactly the kind of connection Rodriguez is trying to avoid. The Daily News investigative team was the first to note that Dr. Gross was reprimanded by the New Jersey Attorney General in February for “failing to adequately ensure proper patient treatment involving the prescribing of hormones including steroids.”



    To the people making excuses for this guy…

    Time to fold ‘em, Alex

    He’s totally going down in flames. It’s like the 4th of July in Hell.

    What ever happens to any of these people, let’s just win this one tonight. This blog is getting too toxic. The Salem trials are tame compared.
    Let’s go, boys!

    ….from a CUBS fan regarding Soriano…..


    Kudos to Alfonso Soriano.
    He has been a class act with the Cubs.
    He was offered a big contract and, regardless of his performance vs. contract money, he has been a very positive influence with the Cubs, from all reports.
    He’s improved as an outfielder late in his career.
    Some excellent hot streaks.
    I have nothing respect for Soriano.

    “It is a little sore,” Rodriguez said on Saturday night. “So I decided to DH instead of play third. I felt it a little bit this morning. I didn’t feel it so much on the ground balls (in batting practice), but in the acceleration.”

    How many f***ing times are you going to post on this subject? Talk about an agenda… :roll:

    Try to find two brain cells and think about this. Arod said his quad was sore. So they sent him for an MRI. The doctor says he has a grade 1 strain so the Yankees immediately say he’s out for a while. He just said his quad was sore and he should miss a game or two. So there is no conflict between Arod’s statements/actions.

    Arod wants to play, the Yankees don’t want him to. Despite what the Yankees say, every one of their actions point to them not wanting him back, including forcing him to take the full 20 days in the minors while everyone else gets fast tracked.

    Its always a circus with this roid freak.

  9. Chambliss July 24th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Girardi must be wondering about his decision to return to the bronx.

    Arod is a disgrace. He has no shame at all. He like a spoiled little child.

    As for the ump last night, Hughes was getting squeezed a lot too. The strike zone for Mo was generous, as it should be.

    If you can muster up enough ATP in your last brain cells Jacksquat, maybe try this. If you don’t understand it. I will keep reposting it until you’ve shown that you know how to read.

    Bob Klapisch ? @BobKlap
    Also worth noting from Cashman’s statement: ARod first refused assignment to AAA on July 12 bc of tight quad. Yet, it’s a NYY conspiracy?


    More reading material for you Jacksquat. It’s just a small tweet so maybe you can manage to cram it into your thick skull.

    Sell assets?

    What assets,Cano, possibly a 2 month rental, Hughes, Chamberlain ditto?

    How about CC or Kuroda? Nope, CC bad year,declining arsenal with a bloated contract?

    Kuroda probably will retire but in any case another 2 month rental?

    Finally the system where there is no one having a standout year?

    They will try to placate the fans and media with a few obscure deals for more bandaids and sing the song of if this or that player comes back they could still make the playoffs.

    But on 8-1 they will remain a team who neither has the ability to attract prime assets for their youth , or sell assets for other organization’s youth!

    The question then becomes will the fan base tolerate 2-3 years of mediocrity and keep paying the bills?

  13. comnsnse July 24th, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    Andrew Marchand, interesting but goofy take on the Arod/Dr.Gross deal.

    Perhaps not a WW media tour, but perhaps a little due diligence on this particular doctor’s creds?

    Maybe Marchand could jump into Weiner’s PR group?
