Trust me, I didn’t believe the headline either. But it really was said and New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is fed up. And who could blame him, Cashman spoke what most sports fans have thought for years now. It’s bad when you win a World Series in New York and the fans still can’t stand ya. Just another story in the once promising career of Alex Rodriquez.
After A-Rod tweeted that he was cleared to play, Cashman fired back over Rodriguez’s Twitter comments.
Visit from Dr. Kelly over the weekend, who gave me the best news – the green light to play games again! http://t.co/RuzfXOJjHI

Livid over Alex Rodriguez’s decision to tweet an update on his rehab process, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman had a message for the third baseman.
“You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, [we will],” Cashman told ESPN New York. “Alex should just shut the f— up. That’s it. I’m going to call Alex now.”
Could Cashman be irked because the Yanks don’t want him causing a distraction for the team? The Yanks don’t seem to stoked to have him back. Cashman reported Monday that A-Rod wasn’t ready to play in any games yet.
“He has not been cleared by our doctors to play in rehab games yet,” he said. “He’s getting closer. There’s no doubt about it. But we don’t have a date for him to start playing games yet. It could be July 1. It could also be July 5, or maybe June 25.”
Here is a tip from the Sports-Kings crew, A-Rod; Twitter may not be the best thing for ya, pal.
