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.
“I will continue to work hard until my efforts get me back in pinstripes and help my team win,” the New York Yankees star said in a statement to news media outlets, including USA TODAY Sports. “The tweet was pure excitement about Dr. Kelly’s prognosis.”
Twitter is a hell of a social media site.
