The Victory Formation:
Not the most shocking news of the day, but odd to hear it coming from someone within the New York Yankees organization. But when one considers the way Brian Cashman responded to Alex Rodriguez’s tweet, you cannot count on professionalism from the Yanks at this point with all things A-Rod. From Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record: Let’s face it, in terms of entertainment value, all the Yankees have is the Alex Rodriguez-front office war – a real doozy, at that. Club officials have nothing but contempt for A-Rod, a sentiment that goes both ways. But they’re also stumped by the slugger’s recent behavior and public comments, which one insider characterized as “bizarre.” You mean to tell me a guy who hangs paintings, yes plural, in his house of himself as a centaur is bizarre? That being said, the Yankees front office is acting like a spoiled rotten kid. A-Rod had offseason surgery, and he is attempting to make a comeback. The guy wants to be on the field, yet the Yankees front office is knocking him for this. The main guy in charge of the roster not named Steinbrenner then berate him publicly, and the Yankees wonder why he [...]

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is acting up again, and as a fan I don’t appreciate his antics.
A-Rod is not exactly the poster boy for good judgment off the baseball field. But considering the current state of the Yankees offense, A-Rod could be a little more selfless about his health.
Here is a timeline of A-Rod’s latest public antics that are messing with Yankee...
Oh, this is so A-Rod.
The New York Daily News reports that the reason Alex Rodriguez is rushing to get back on the field is because the embattled superstar wants to prove he can’t play so he can retire and collect the $114 million remaining on his contract with the Yankees. The New York Post also reports that Rodriguez is looking to use his injured hip as a reason to retire.
Alex Rodriguez says he feels great and his relationship with the New York Yankees is fine.
Rodriguez didn't indicate when he will start a minor league injury rehabilitation assignment or rejoin the big league team, saying Saturday he "can't wait to get back."
"So far, no issues," Rodriguez said. "I'm just working really hard. I'm having...
This was a battle that folks should’ve seen coming from the start. Yankees vs Arod is about to commence, because it’s conspiracy time.
According to a source the disgraced 3rd baseman who is also rehabbing from a hip injury feels the Yankees are intentionally slowing his return to the starting roster so that they can have him declared medically unfit to play this season, thus...
ALEX WITH THE ANGLE
Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez intends to make a quick return to the field so he can retire and collect his entire salary before he's suspended by the MLB.
We reported the news last night of the rather umm… direct way New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman responded to Alex Rodriguez tweeting out that he had been cleared by doctors to resume playing baseball.
Taking into account the way Cashman responded, we knew it would only be a matter of time before A-Rod decided to issue a statement in regards to what Cashman had to say.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman wants gimpy superstar Alex Rodriguez to know that a doctor clearing him to play doesn’t mean the third baseman can just hop back on the field.
Apparently, Rodriguez agrees — just not the way everyone thought.
In a week full of firestorms after Rodriguez said a doctor had cleared him to play and Cashman angrily retorted that the team would...
The Alex Rodriguez rehab-gate saga just took a strange turn. One day after he tweeted about how excited he was to begin playing baseball in minor league rehab games, which led to him being told by GM Brian Cashman to ‘shut the f up’, A-Rod has informed Yankees officials in Tampa that he is physically not ready to play baseball, according to the New York Post. “He is not ready...
While making great strides in his rehab, Derek Jeter said he believes Alex Rodriguez will be productive upon his return and there's "no way he can be a distraction to us."
The Yankees are in need of a third baseman since Alex Rodriguez is hurt and facing a possible suspension. While the Yankees have faced injuries to Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Derek Jeter, they still have found a way to remain in contention. To be honest, I can't believe it and neither can many reporters throughout the league.
The Yankees, according...
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez doesn't believe he is ready to
return to game action, the New York Post reports.
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Writer The instructions were so simple it makes you wonder what part of ''just shut ... up'' Alex Rodriguez didn't understand.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman's directive the other day was calibrated for maximum effect, sure. He knew exactly what he was doing. It's why he tucked a profanity in the middle.
Derek Jeter has joined teammate Alex Rodriguez in hitting against minor league pitching.
Coming back from a broken left ankle, Jeter had an opposite-field single to right in six at-bats Friday against a minor league right-hander. The Yankees captain said it was his second day of facing live pitching.
Rodriguez, who had hip surgery in January, had two doubles and a single in five...
