Remember the good ol’ days, when Michael Kay was A-Rod’s media mouthpiece?
Via Bob’s Blitz –
Immediately after Meredith Marakovits reported today that Brian Cashman had said on a conference call earlier that Dr. Dan Murphy confirmed Alex Rodriguez’ quad is improving and that A-Rod “was in agreement” moving forward with an August 1 goal for a simulated game…Arod confirmed Michael Kay’s suspicions of blind support and opinion buying as he appeared tonight, again, with his good buddy Mike Francesa.
Surprise, surprise, surprise.
Asked if he trusted the Yankees and their process, Rodriguez said: “Um…..I’d rather not get into that. I’m just frustrated that I’m not on the field tomorrow. I’ll leave it at that. He added, “My frustration is obvious, but I’m going to put my head down here and get back to New York as soon as I can.”
Asked why his lawyer was with him, Arod answered, “I just wanted to make sure that everything was documented properly.”
Doesn’t sound like it.
“I told Cashman and Randy (Levine) that I’m ready to play, that I want to play tomorrow,” A-Rod said. “I made it very clear … Obviously I’m very, very disappointed because I thought tomorrow night would be the perfect night to come back and get in the lineup.”
The Yankees front office these days tends to hold a grudge. At what point to they go after Francesa for continuing to give A-Rod a platform for this stuff?
