The Cousin Yuri case has been closed. MLB has done an extensive investigation into sightings of Alex Rodriguez’s Cousin Yuri Sucart at team hotels on Yankees road trips this season. The issue has been “resolved.” MLB’s findings? Don’t worry about it.
“Our position is, we told the Yankees, they agreed, that (Sucart) should not be allowed in any non-public areas; clubhouses, any team charters, buses. And it’s our understanding that that prohibition has been respected,” Manfred told ESPN.com. “We’ve talked to the Yankees and they’ve assured us the prohibition has been respected.”
“All we can do is control his access to areas that (MLB) or the team control. We will stay in touch with the Yankees to make sure that prohibition is being respected. A hotel lobby is a public place; there is nothing we can do,” Manfred added.
Cousin Yuri just hangs out in public places. In the eyes of Major League Baseball there ain’t nothing wrong with that. Cousin Yuri in the hotel lobby is kind of like cornbread. Cousin Yuri loves cornbread!
