Alex Rodriguez certainly didn’t receive any support from Red Sox fans at Fenway Park this past weekend as the former MVP was jeered during each and every at-bat during the three game set between Boston and New York. Now, A-Rod can’t even receive support from the Yankees.

Yanks president Randy Levine blasted back at Rodriguez’s new lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, who alleges that the Yankees misled Rodriguez about his injuries in hopes that he would be unable to play baseball again.

“Alex should put up or shut up,” Levine said to ESPN on Saturday.

Tacopina shot back: “We will put up, mark my words, we will put up,” he told ESPN. “[Levine] is always a very big talker, but he is going to be humbled eventually. He is acting in a way that if his bosses and superiors and the Steinbrenner family have any sense of decency, if they are true to what the Yankees’ heritage is, they would be appalled with how their president is acting. We will put up.”

Had Rodriguez not been able to return to the field this season, the Yankees would have likely been able to collect insurance on his hefty contract.
