What’s next for A-Rod: A tell-all book?

Alex Rodriguez 8

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.

    I wonder what his legal fees are…might have been better to take the suspension :-)

    What will happen if Arod wins the hearing? No suspension at all or 50 game suspension as first offender?

  3. tom says:

    Same as Jhonny Peralta.

    The steroid thing kills me. I hate that I have to take ARod's side on something, especially when its clear that his narcissism knows no bounds ( a book?! really? a documentary?!!). But the fact is that MLB violated his privacy when it leaked his random test results from 2003. MLB pulled that 200+ game suspension out of its @ss – there's no precedent for it. MLB is behaving badly here.

  6. OK, he did admit to doing steroids while with the Texas Rangers (in a "60 Minutes" interview. The guys who were suspended for 50 days, to the man, never tested positive for PED,s.

    Ryan Braun took a 65 game suspension as he did fail a drug test in 2012 but got off on a technicality, in addition to the newer charges. His policy seemed to be why why split hairs over 15 more games and get the hell out of the spotlight.

    Unlike all mentioned, none were accused of obstructing justice. AROD is innocent until proven guilty like everyone else, of course.

    Arod is baseball's Lance Armstrong. Only the tip of his iceberg has been revealed and we''ll probably never know the extent of his PED usage.
