I wonder how much this would **** off the Yankees. From the NY Daily News:
"Alex Rodriguez has 114 million reasons to get back on the field. According to sources close to the ongoing drama surrounding the star-crossed Yankee third baseman, Rodriguez and his advisers are so concerned that Major League Baseball's drug posse is quickly closing in on him that they have racheted up the timetable for him to return to game action. Once he's back playing in rehab games, the sources say, he could then claim he is physically unable to perform because of the serious hip injury he is recovering from, "retire" from the game, and still collect the full amount of his salary -- $114 million over the next five years. "It's all about him getting his money and not losing it to suspension," one source close to the situation told the Daily News."
Could that be why Cashman was ******? Are the Yankees trying to stall clearing him for game action?
