Cashman challenges A-Rod to exam

Brian Cashman’s expression said it all.

Every time Alex Rodriguez’s name was mentioned Friday, the New York Yankees general manager appeared as if he might get sick.

Cashman challenged A-Rod to have his leg examined by an outside doctor, defending the team’s medical and training staff and saying he wouldn’t comment on “extra noise.”

Woman ejected for tampered jersey

A Wisconsin woman said Friday she is still a Milwaukee Brewers fan, even though security at Miller Park asked her to leave a game after she changed her Ryan Braun jersey to read “FRAUD.”

Karen Eidem, 37, of Pewaukee said she papered over the letters “B’’ and “N’’ in Braun’s name with the letters “F’’ and “D’’ on the back of her Brewers shirt after the slugger accepted a season-ending, 65-game suspension after admitting to violating baseball’s rules on performance-enhancing drugs.
