A-Rod has asked and been granted a meeting with the Yankees, GM Brian Cashman confirmed. — Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) February 6, 2015
Well well well. I guess some of those earlier reports about the Yankees turning down A-Rod's request to meet and clear the air were nothing more than shoddy reporting/typical anti-A-Rod rumor mongering. According to this report by Nick Cafardo earlier this morning, the Yankees and Alex have agreed to meet and talk before the start of the upcoming season. Cash went further to say that those previous reports were untrue, and that this was the first time A-Rod asked to have a sit down with the team.
Between Cash shooting down that earlier report, him saying the Yanks are "more than happy to meet with him [A-Rod]" and Alex seemingly trying to do everything the right way, it appears as though all the A-Rod haters might not get the drama and shame they were looking for this season. I shudder to think at what's going to become of the Daily News I-Team when that happens. Without a bunch of made up negative A-Rod stories to write, how are those people going to fill their time? Do they even remember how to do actual reporting and fact-based news writing? Guess we'll find out.
