Now this all makes sense. Why did A-Rod decide to go with ESPN as his interviewer following the news that he did steroids? Well because ESPN is using him to promote their coverage of the World Baseball Classic. I honestly wish I was kidding. ESPN and ESPN2 are carrying 23 games of the Baseball tournament this March, and along with Jorge Cantu, Ichiro and Derek Jeter, A-Rod will be one of their marquee names in advertisements starting this Saturday….
It is certainly possible that these ads were long in the making, but even so, don’t you think ESPN would have pulled the Rodriguez ones? Seems far too convenient if you ask me. Oh, and tell me that quote they used for him, doesn’t piss you off even more? I’m just about done with Baseball.
