A series of some rather ‘interesting’ emails exchanged between Yankees president Randy Levine and A-Rod have come to light.
New York Magazine reporter Steve Fisher gives us a glimpse into the bizarre world of the Yankees relationship with their disgraced third baseman. The exchanges span the course of two years, and vary from mundane advice emails, to the flat-out hilarious and just wrong…like this email Levine sent A-Rod about Robinson Cano:
How r u feeing since u left Robby [Cano] under 200, he needs some steroids fast!
That was from July 2012, this next one was from August of the same year
Hey, what’s up with Robby. This guy must not be using the liquid. U didn’t tell me what did Chris and Steve say your ETA is. Don’t rush it unless u r right. We need you. Nova looks like he may need a breather. What do u see.
Why on Earth Levine would find it funny to joke about steroids with a guy like A-Rod is beyond reason. The series of emails paint a very cheesy reality show TV portrait of the Yankees and A-Rod, and is definitely worth reading start to finish, if you have about 3 hours to devote to laughing hysterically.
These are a different breed of Yankees, indeed.
