Out of the playoffs after losing yesterday but despite being behind the Yankees decided to -- their highest paid athlete.
And the highest paid athlete in the -- -- -- Alex Rodriguez also not as a -- as his career on the line and and will -- lose some of the endorsements -- we'll be harder for him to get endorsements.
Let's bring in sports agent Evan Morgan Stanley the president and CEO of premier management group but I want to start by showing you.
The front page of the New York Post because they're they're so understated.
And -- and personal story but as well but they show us side baseball but says dear yankees we don't date losers but then if you flip it over.
It shows a -- and it says he -- for nothing.
-- how much does this hurt his earning power as a guy who was making 275.
Million dollars didn't even get up -- that during the playoffs and was flirted with women in the.
-- Well I don't think he really cares I think when you've made that much money.
And your playing horribly you'd rather be on the bench from baseball's women trying to get your phone numbers -- Let -- clearly wasn't gonna stand up and change the reality of how bad the Yankees played.
I mean the fact that the market crash that I'm not sure that's an indication of you know the sadness about how bad the Yankees play it or not but there were awful and he was a leading indicator of why they were terrible well.
You know DEB everybody's talk about him being traded to the Marlins up but you'd you'd almost have to pay the Marlins to take place is so expensive correct.
Well absolutely look I call the front down in Miami today and he said why would we take up his New York's trash don't -- himself send them -- Send -- to -- that we don't wanna up.
What I was gonna say wait what is up but then let's talk about the endorsements in.
Does he lose seven what can he do to turn this around you as a sports agent imagine he's your client.
Wealth well first of all let me just -- the reality the reality is I don't think there's more than two people -- can tell you what products Iraq endorses right now.
I was do you have any idea I was -- I don't have any idea I have no idea so because you don't even understand or even know what products he's thinking about or is endorsing.
As his agent I would do one thing I'd say Alex listen.
People hate you and the only way to -- -- that appears to do a good work.
And what you need to do is -- take some of that money and -- -- -- like fairy dust in poor communities all over the United States and have those communities build baseball fields for kids in need.
I see so so kind of rehabilitate the image you know you just said he can't name lot of people can't name what he endorses but yet years later I can still say that everybody knows Michael Jordan.
Endorses -- and and it will never be another Jordan you know you look at the Derek cheater who has a pretty good image but I don't really -- -- that person.
You don't Jordan.
He -- that -- and he appealed to everybody there's also.
You know I -- Derek cheater but but making abroad.
Or or you think about that -- Possibly admiral Michael Phelps -- manic Venus and Serena David.
-- as I said tiger she kills hiker lost that that they and then of course Lance Armstrong.
Well unfortunately you just -- the greatest retired group of athletes ever.
That's so if you're gonna step up and be a great marketing tool yeah there's you have to have some kind of performance.
And when you're going on forty or fifty years old.
That's not likely.
I think Venus Williams of that group of people has the best shot.
Because I think she's got about five more years left -- her she is amazing and incredible talent will never seen anybody like her again she breaks all racial barriers and the United States breaking racial barriers is still big deal look at -- Dublin.
-- -- -- -- Olympics is the hottest athlete because she did what nobody else has ever done.
You know what speaking of Olympic athletes I wanted to mention you represented Olympic athletes a lot of swimmers -- Torres Mark Spitz.
Cullen Jones Amanda Beard -- you're gonna be representing some of winter athletes is too but as we finish up -- let me just ask you.
Could he ever.
Ever fix what has been a total disaster with the doping scandal.
One word -- sick he's talked sick.
Whether he ever admits it or not the folks that you saw -- -- work hard every day.
To go out there and find the cheese I have athletes that work every day to try -- -- the best in the world safe.
Despite every day to be recognized in the world that nobody pays attention Olympic athletes until they show up at the Olympics the truth is Lance Armstrong.
He is over at this point is it just go away and come back someday and just focus on helping people associated with cancer that's where his option is in terms of being relevant.
But in terms of marketing.
-- is of -- doesn't even that he cheated.
Evan Morgan -- premier management group president and CEO we spent time in London at the Olympics glad to have you back thank you so much.
