Brian Cashman made an appearance on the Joe Benigno/Evan Roberts WFAN show Friday and succeeded in diverting the attention from his inability to land a righthanded-hitting outfielder by suggesting Alex Rodriguez could miss the entire 2013 season because of his latest hip surgery.
When asked if such a doomsday scenario was possible, Cashman replied, yes, as in anything is possible. “I think . . . because of the serious condition he is trying to recover from, you know, there is that chance,” Cashman said.
What Cashman didn’t say was that A-Rod missing the entire season wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing for the Yankees.
