Alex Rodriguez is under fire once again for rumored use of performance enhancing drugs. Rodriguez is rehabbing a bad hip, and in order to keep the media from hounding Rodriguez during his rehab, ESPN New York is reporting that the team will keep his rehab location a secret.
“I’m not going to say to try and keep away the extra whatever you want to call it, paparazzi, whatever it is, the stakeout wherever he is working out,” Cashman said at the Hard Rock Café in Time Square, where he helped support the Yankees’ radio producer/engineer, Carlos Silva, who is battling cancer.
“That’s the only reason I’m not going to say where he is going to be on a given day.”
The 37-year-old Rodriguez underwent hip surgery in January and could miss most of the upcoming season. Yankees medical staff has been in contact with Alex in regards to his rehab.
“We have a protocol set up for Alex that was already in line through Dr. (Brian) Kelly’s office,” Cashman said, referencing the surgeon who performed the operation. “I’m not going to state where he will be when camp opens. It hasn’t been altered with the recent publicity that he is dealing with.”
“The only thing required right now is patience and smarts,” Cashman said. “By smarts, I mean, do not get ahead of things you don’t know about. Do not speak to areas you have no knowledge of. Do not throw out sound bites that are convenient because everybody is hungry and thirsty for answers before you can legitimately provide any. So that’s obviously what we are doing.

So the Alex Rodriguez saga continues, but no one can seem to find him?
Alex Rodriguez – Yankee Stadium.
Well according Bill Maddon of the New York Daily News :
“The latest word on Alex Rodriguez, wherever he is, is that he’s scared. Not scared because of all these revelations about his involvement with an associate named Tony Bosch, an alleged dispenser of HGH and testosterone...
From the NY Daily News:Alex Rodriguez is taking his wildest swing yet in his fight against steroid allegations: The Yankees and MLB are conspiring to push him out of the game.
Sources say the embattled Yankee star is “scared” that bigger forces are at work to try to discredit him and sink his career. Holed up in Miami, Rodriguez has been huddling with an army of lawyers and...
Alex Rodriguez appears to be hiding. Between rehabbing an injury that could sideline him for much of the 2013 season and facing accusations surrounding performance-enhancing drug use, A-Rod is likely not anxious to speak to the media any time soon. That is why the New York Yankees are doing their best to protect him.
“I’m not going to say to try and keep away the extra, whatever...
Replacing Alex Rodriguez isn’t a realistic target to throw on any draft pick, or even on a pair of draft picks. But the Seattle Mariners missed badly when they tried to do their best at that in the 2001 draft as the names they called -- and the names they passed over -- when considering where they selected may go down as the worst draft in franchise history.
With reports coming this week tying Alex Rodriguez to yet another steroid scandal, now seems like a good time to look back at when the Mets decided to make a run at the then 25-year-old shortstop. So hop in the DeLorean, and close your eyes because we’re going to rev it up to 88 miles per hour and go back to the year 2000.
Open your eyes. It’s November of the year 2000. ...

It was Super Bowl Sunday on WGBB, but I elected to talk some basketball as Hall of Fame NBA columnist Peter Vecsey joined me.
Vecsey was known for his “Hoop Du Jour” column in the New York Post until this past September. He talked about his departure from the paper, what bothers him about today’s NBA and remembered his days as part of the “NBA on NBC” team.
After the Ravens...
After the conclusion of last night's Super Bowl between the Ravens and 49ers (which by the way, made me a very happy man), the tide turned from football season...to baseball season. In one short week, pitchers and catchers will be reporting in Florida and Arizona for Spring Training, and you'll have more baseball coverage than you know what to do with. And quite frankly,...
