Now, Yankees team president Randy Levine is firing back.

Those records would show the treatment Rodriguez received from Dr. Anthony Galea – which the Yankees did not sanction. “The one medical issue we can’t confirm is [Rodriguez's] treatment by Dr. Anthony Galea. We obviously didn’t know he was being treated by Dr. Galea,” Levine told ESPNNewYork.com in a phone interview. “We didn’t authorize it. Since [Rodriguez] has put his condition into play, he should release his records with Galea.” With the third b...

A-Rod lawyer: Yanks prez Randy Levine told doc operating on him: "I don't ever want to see him on the field again." Crazy allegation.
It's an A-bomb for A-Rod -- and his attorney!

Here's a link to the New York Times article with the accusations. And here's what I think...
