(BOSTON) — New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman’s relationship with star player Alex Rodriguez is getting awkward.
Cashman talked with the media Sunday before the team’s 9-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox.
“I’m not comfortable talking to Alex about this because we feel we are in a litigious environment,” Cashman said. “Hello and goodbye, that’s about it. I’m not comfortable talking to him anymore. I don’t want to be distorted.”
“Is this a distraction? For me, yes,” he said. “I can’t speak for others but I know it’s definitely a distraction for me. I’ve got a lot of extra work from this stuff. It’s very frustrating.”
