Privileged Cashman Cusses Out Alex Rodriguez

Yankees GM Brian Cashman has a message for injured 3B Alex Rodriguez: never take sides against the family in public. Michael Coreone he ain't, but in telling A-Rod to shut the **** up, publicly, after A-Rod tweeted this:
Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez        ✔ @AROD

Visit from Dr. Kelly over the weekend, who gave me the best news - the green light to play games again!
4:22 PM - 25 Jun 2013

it would seem Cashman violated one of his own rules.

I don't know if what A-Rod did violated SOP, but can you blame him? A-Rod has been out all year with an injury and he's had to rehab away from the team while fending off charges he's involved in another drug scandal. He's down in Florida making $28 million and hasn't played one inning. So you can imagine how excited he was when he heard the news. Rodriguez has 647 career home runs (5th all-time) 1,950 RBI's (7th all-time, and number one active) and has been the MVP three times. A-Rod may have crossed a line by tweeting the news, but Cashman is way out of line for being so publicly nasty about someone with Hall of Fame numbers and someone, unlike Cashman, who actually earned his position in baseball.
