• Cashman: “A-Fraud” Just Another Thing For A-Rod

    Via Mark Feinsand -

    Cashman, who has remained relatively quiet about the contents of Joe Torre’s book, has spoken with his superstar third baseman about the “A-Fraud” firestorm created by the release of Torre’s “The Yankee Years,” and the general manager isn’t worried about Rodriguez’s ability to cast the controversy aside and focus on baseball.

    “He’s fine,” Cashman said. “It’s something he’s going to have to deal with.”

    Cashman has spoken to Rodriguez several times throughout the winter, which is not unusual for them. The GM said he didn’t reach out to A-Rod specifically to address Torre’s book, though the topic came up during a recent conversation.

    “He’s already dealt with stuff like this way too many times,” Cashman said of the “A-Fraud” fallout. “It’s just another thing for him to swat out of the way.”

    …It’s just another thing for him to swat out of the way…

    How cool would it be to have a full 12-month period, or longer, where A-Rod doesn’t have “another thing” to deal with?

      It’s not going to happen until he’s dead.

      It would also be cool if we could stop all wars and put an end to world hunger, however some things just aren’t realistic.

      Also, since there is no “Cooler Talk” and this is A-Rod related….

      Apparently there are sources saying A-Rod did steroids in 2003 with Texas…….. not sure what to make of it yet.
