There is no team campaign against Alex Rodriguez, the Bombers said Friday. Yankees president Randy Levine insisted through a team spokesman Friday that, “Nobody in this organization is mad at Alex.”
Pinstriped brass otherwise didn’t have a lot to say about a report in Friday’s Daily News. That report quoted a TV industry source as saying team officials were angered that A-Rod hadn’t immediately informed them he’d been contacted by the FBI, which wants to question him in its investigation of Dr. Anthony Galea.
In response to assertions that the organization also backed the YES Network’s decision to highlight Rodriguez’s most recent controversy during Wednesday’s telecast of the spring-training opener, GM Brian Cashman added that he has “never told YES to do or not do anything.”
