Prior to Sunday's game between Cubs and Washington Nationals, A-Rod had the opportunity to discuss the matter with the Cubs driver.
A-Rod: "I do have a lot of respect for Joe and the #Cubs organization and I have for a long time and that has not changed. As a matter of fact, before I go to rehearsal, Joe and I plan to have drinks together, that's planned, that's in the books. "- Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat)

Maddon told the press there was a sincere discussion between the two after one of his previous broadcasts criticized the way Cubs has handled Darvish's injury.
Rodriguez also spoke to the press and according to Carrie Muskat of MLB.com he explained that nothing would change about Darvish.
No. My job is to speak fairly and objectively. I have more than 25 years in the game, and I will call it as I see it. We do not always have to agree on everything.
