Well, if you happened to open the New York Post today and turn to the Page Six section, you might find a story that Alex Rodriguez‘s next move could possibly be to write a tell-all book about his legal battle with Major League Baseball and how he plans to lift the lid on the “dirt full of Major League Baseball tactics” they have reportedly used against him.
If that wasn’t enough, sources tell the New York Post that HarperCollins and Random House are two of the book publishers fighting one another for publishing rights and a deal could be reached with A-Rod within the next few weeks.
Also according to the New York Post, Rodriguez has met with filmmaker Billy Corben about making a documentary on his battle to stay on the field.
“A number of publishers are vying for the book, with offers coming in over $5 million. Alex has met with several publishers over the past few weeks and has meetings with others right after the new year.” The source said. “This book is going to go into the real low-down dirt of MLB tactics and collusion with the Yankees to get him out of the game. Alex has also had meetings with Billy Corben on a ‘30 for 30’-type documentary about his story.”
If the documentary is made, it would most likely air on HBO, given ESPN’s relationship with Major League Baseball. The book deal also comes at an interesting time. If Rodriguez is suspended for the 2014 season, he could lose $25 Million.
