Yankees manager Joe Girardi addressed the New York media and 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio late Wednesday morning and confirmed that he does not receive updates on what is going on with MLB and their continued effort to ban Alex Rodriguez and many others for their roles in the Biogenesis drug lab.“I’m not privy to any of that information. If you want to find out stuff, you’re going to have to talk to MLB,” Girardi said. “That doesn’t come through my desk; it doesn’t come to me. My job is to manage the guys in the clubhouse, and I’ll continue to do that.”

Girardi’s main concern is the overall game of baseball.

“When we talk about this, my concern is about the game and the game being clean,” Girardi said. “I’d hoped that we were through it, but obviously, maybe we’re not. But we’re going to find out.”

MLB hopes to have 100-game suspensions handed out within two weeks, according to the initial report by “Outside the Lines.”  Biogenesis owner Tony Bosch is expected to hand over more documents proving the use of PED’s by several players and is willing to talk about the situation more in-depth with MLB’s higher brass.  Players include A-Rod and Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun.
