As reported on Monday, Randy Levine emailed Alex Rodriguez in 2012, and suggested that a then-slumping Robinson Cano needed to get on “steroids fast.

Even if he was joking, shouldn’t Levine be asked why, in an era of intense PED scrutiny, he felt it was appropriate to email a player those comments, particularly when the recipient of those emails was public enemy #1, Alex Rodriguez?

These is a valid and newsworthy question that should be answered. If Alex Rodriguez had made this comment, would we not see an immediate media response from journalists who cover the Yankees?
