07:31 AM ET 10.14 | Many people, including a good number of Yankees fans, believe the franchise would be better off if Alex Rodriguez's suspension is upheld and he's sidelined for all of 2014. Brian Cashman isn't one of them. The Yankees general manager reiterated that thought during an appearance on ESPN Radio Sunday, noting the challenge that comes with trying to replace a productive third baseman. "If it comes down to, would we want the player we signed to be playing that position without any problems? Absolutely, no question about that," Cashman said. "I think if people think there's some sort of benefit by losing that talent, I mean, you can't replace it. It's not like, 'All right, well, Alex is gone.' If he winds up getting suspended and it's upheld, how do you replace that? It's not easy."

He has to say that so the lawyers handling this case and the ruling body don't think the Yankees "have it in" for Rodriguez and are just trying to get rid of his contract. PR move and that's all this is.

Those two clowns(ARoid and Assman) are worth the price of admission. If nothing else, they will make for very entertaining winter baseball news as the Yankees continue their implosion. I wonder if the ARoid suit against the Yankees has anything to do with what Assman is saying? And in other news, the Yankees were scouting the local retirement home in search of younge players for next season.

The true Yankee fans are cringing as they read this media story.

This POS needs to be banned from baseball for life. There is no place for him, and his type, in professional baseball. He needs to switch sports and play professional football. The Patriots, where cheating is encouraged, would pick him up........

Translation: "All I know is if he is suspended half a year $12.5 million comes off our team salary and I can spend it as I choose. If he gets a year, well, that number becomes $25 million. What's not to like about the guy?"....

A productive third baseman? When was the last time he was "productive?" All he produces now is disharmony and controversy. Take what money you have left (which should be a lot) and just go away.
