A-Rod is going to the World Series.
Not as a player, but as a baseball analyst with Fox Sports. The official announcement was made when Alex Rodriguez made a special appearance on Fox's NFL Sunday.
He also did this.
He overthrew a football that went beyond Jay Glazer and broke one of the TV monitors in the studio.
Host Curt Menefee said,
“Alex, you know that comes out of your check at Fox."
The steroids tainted slugger will make his official debut during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series between the Kansas City Royals and the Toronto Blue Jays. His contract will last through the World Series.
This is not the first time Fox has made a controversial decision when they signed Pete Rose as an analyst earlier this season.
The all-time MLB hits leader has been banned from baseball for gambling, but has continued to make a comeback in baseball. He also met up with Major League Baseball commissioner, Rob Manfred, for possible reinstatement, but the commissioner has put the decision on hold, until the end of the year.
The hiring of Alex Rodriguez has definitely sparked a huge controversy online.
It sure will help with the ratings as many people will be following every on of A-Rod's moves on TV.
This can also lead to a potential post-baseball career in television. We will simply have to wait and see how well he does tomorrow.
