A-Rod weighs in after a tweet about his progress in rehab caused his GM to tell him to STFU:

“I will continue to work hard until my efforts get me back in pinstripes and help my team win. The tweet was pure excitement about Dr. Kelly’s prognosis.”

God, he’s really a monster, isn’t he?

      Ugh! Why does that keep happening when I comment by replying to the email? Does anyone know how to fix that?

        Don’t reply to the email?

    And now will Brian Cashman please shut the fuck up?

      Cashman is toast. Least productive front office executive (per dollar spent) in American sports history.

    He looks like he’s going to cry in that photo. I actually feel bad for him.

      Heyyy brother.

  5. chadjones27 - Jun 26, 2013 at 10:47 AM

    What’s Cashman’s next response? “Is Brian gonna have to choke a bitch?”

  6. uyf1950 - Jun 26, 2013 at 10:56 AM

    Got to say I’m with A-Rod on this one. Cashman over reacted big time.

    Woudln’t be baseball without the Yankees at the center of the perceived universe.

        Go ahead, throw your damn Monsanto popcorn, I dare ya!

      • historiophiliac - Jun 26, 2013 at 1:22 PM

        Worse. It has cooties!

        (Pretty sure the down-thumbers are gonna go NUTS on that. ha ha! I love irritating them.)

    Some might percieve what A-Rod said as, “I like to drown puppies and make fun of orphans.”

    • bfunk1978 - Jun 26, 2013 at 11:28 AM

      So he’s just a regular guy, then.

    My biggest complaint with Alex Rodriguez is his nickname. Ever since he came around, people who lack any creativity have jointly decided that taking the first initial from anyone’s first name and the first syllable from their last name constitutes a legitimate nickname.

    • chadjones27 - Jun 26, 2013 at 11:55 AM

      Did he nickname himself? (Given the whole centaur portrait, it’s conceivable)
      My personal favorite is K-Rod (Francisco Rodriguez). I’m assuming the K is for strike outs. And I don’t mind the first initial/first syllable thing as long as it sounds right. R-How, M-Tex, J-Ver, etc… are just plain bad.

      • yahmule - Jun 26, 2013 at 12:01 PM

        It wasn’t my intention to blame him for his boring letter/syllable nickname, merely to identify him as boring letter/syllable nickname zero.

        And I don’t mind the first initial/first syllable thing as long as it sounds right.

        What do you think about King Felix’s? 😉

    There is no other way to say it …. BRIAN CASHMAN MUST GO.

    He’s put a very ugly face on the Yankees with his public use of the F Bomb in relation to any NY Yankee.

  11. rayburns - Jun 26, 2013 at 11:40 AM

    No, A-Rod is not a monster… he’s a prima-donna with the public relations sense of a rock, but he’s not a monster…

    • apmn - Jun 26, 2013 at 1:31 PM

      And apparently incapable of STFU-ing.

  12. historiophiliac - Jun 26, 2013 at 11:46 AM

    I can just hear him saying that in his stupid-sounding voice…

    Maybe the Biogenesis investigation will unearth how many times Craig has sucked A-rod’s cock, the number has got to be way up there. The girl A-rod gave his number to during the playoff game was actually Craig dressed in drag.

    • jimeejohnson - Jun 26, 2013 at 12:25 PM

      What the hell is your problem?

      • apmn - Jun 26, 2013 at 1:25 PM

        He was breast fed by his father. It really screws a person up.

      Gotta hand it to you Ted – every time I think you have plumbed the Marianas Trench of stupidity and trailer park classlessness, you crawl to yet another abyssal depth where thus far uncalssified forms of lowlife feed on seeping sulfur and decomposing annelid feces and then present them for our delectation. You also seem to have a nitrogen bubble lodged somewhere in your corpus collosum. Good luck trying to dislodge it, you drooling moron.

      • rockthered1286 - Jun 26, 2013 at 2:31 PM

        So in a much more creative way, the OG has said Teddy needs to STFU. You’ve just been Cashmanned! Can we throw some rights on that one?
