The Yankees are apparently forgiving and forgetting when it comes to Alex Rodriguez and his past misgivings. Team executives met with A-Rod and his lawyer in a meeting that Rodriguez himself asked for. It seems the A-Rod’s apology did the trick because shortly after the meeting, the Yankees organization and Rodriguez’s camp issued a brief, joint statement regarding A-Rod’s future with the team.
“Today we held a meeting at Yankee Stadium between Hal Steinbrenner, Randy Levine, Brian Cashman, Jean Afterman, Alex Rodriguez and Jim Sharp. Alex initiated the meeting and apologized to the organization for his actions over the past several years.
“There was an honest and frank discussion on all of the issues. As far as the Yankees are concerned, the next step is to play baseball in spring training.”
