09:41 AM ET 07.27 | First Brian Cashman cursed out A-Rod, and now he's calling him out. The Yankees general manager, who last month publicly ordered the third baseman to "shut the f--- up" when he tweeted about being ready to play in games before being given the green light, said Alex Rodriguez should file a grievance with the Major League Baseball Players Association if he really feels the Yankees are preventing him from playing by falsifying his medical condition regarding his strained left quadriceps muscle. "The MRI is the MRI. It's fact," Cashman said. "You can't change the results of an MRI. We're very comfortable with it and if anybody wants to utilize the process in place with the union, go right ahead. It's not something we're afraid of."

It's not a good sign when attorneys have to be a part of a conference call with a player his agent and the GM. That is what happened from the meeting. so it was reported by Yankee officals.

For people wanting to write off A-Rod for the year, I thought Tim Kurkjian made a good point the other day on Baseball Tonight. He pointed out how, since the Yankees are currently getting zero production from anyone they're sticking at 3rd base these days, that they'd be willing to bring him back.

As long as he did not double dog dare him then it is no big deal.

He will play at some point this year. I have no reason to doubt it.

Unless he gets suspended.

I hope so, but will have to see it happen. Braun rolled over for convenience sake. bad year for team, he was hurt and he knew he was cornered.

I saw the same piece. Worst production at 3rd in all MLB. Bring him back until the ban hammer strikes hot.

Arod will screw the Yankees into paying him claiming he can still play, if they cut him he goes to Japan, gets paid by a Japanese Team while sueing The Yankees and MLB for a conspiracy, it like hitting The Lotto!!!

If A-rod feel the Yankees are having the medical staff are conspiring to keep A -rod from being cleared to play, A-rod has a legal right to consult his own physician. If his physician does an MRI and that MRI shows no injury Then A-Rod has a case.

A-Rod's recourse is to petition the league and allege that the Yankees are conspiring to keep him off the field.

However, contrary to your statement, A-Rod does not have the right to get a second opinion without the Yankees' permission.

Plus, Braun's salary goes up next year and in each successive year thereafter. From a financial standpoint, taking the hit now costs Braun less than taking a suspension next year.
