Meet your current Bob being thrown at one of the major league's biggest and brightest stars Alex Rodriguez or -- rod BAT's highest paid players take a serious heat.
Over whether or not he's been taking steroids he has been jog by these accusations for years.
But now for the first time to other players are speaking up making some pretty candid admissions.
Could this affect -- rods endorsements and what can it mean for the lead joining me now as.
People fox Sports Radio host and World Series champ.
BN welcome back to the show this -- seem like it's really getting some traction and -- what's your take.
While Melissa's getting traction because we're talking about tens of millions of dollars.
And the perception that you have a commissioner keep telling everybody paid games cleaned up.
Are testing the program is working there's nothing to worry about all the records now are on the up and up it's an even playing field.
And then you see guys like -- -- -- Berra Alex Rodriguez Ryan abroad continually.
Associating with these known.
You know PED guys that are that are basically.
The the father of -- -- is directly associated with Manny Ramirez.
So you don't want to be anywhere near his son.
Because then you're associating with you know more guys that Major League Baseball -- and so from my money when you're talking and say let's take -- to Ber averaged outfielder.
All of a sudden -- that happens overnight.
And he goes to an all star MBP he was looking at making fifty to eighty million dollars so it's still big business again on the drug testing policy no.
And you alluded to this but it's all being sort of traced back to this bio Genesis company.
Is that gonna end up being the smoking gun in this particular case we can -- go inside and get the records and doctor Robert Bosch really put a lot of pressure on him and is this gonna on earth all -- -- of problems.
-- -- I definitely think it'll -- a lot of problems because -- gonna see a lot more names come out not just the big ones but you're gonna see a lot of these Millwood road elixir belly and some of these other guys are backed up catchers.
Guys that are borderline minor league guys but like I said.
If you're -- -- and you're a fourth or fifth outfielder on the Yankees now -- all star and BP that puts you in the higher Echelon of making money.
Ryan -- has a hundred million dollar deal -- Alex Rodriguez up 500 million dollar career of making money at the Major League level -- the perception.
That these guys are beating the system and Major League baseball's not -- This serious enough that it could really take a ride down -- mean you look at his contracts here at the 252 million dollar contract with the Rangers in 2275.
Million with the Yankees in 2007.
Money you know a huge player here in New York -- this really take.
-- -- -- Well -- honestly I don't -- gay rods that that relevant anymore his his.
Power productions way down.
He's got a lot of injuries especially in his hip area his back area so I don't think he's he's going to be that big of a factor yet the Yankees owe him a 114 million dollars.
So if anybody wants to get out of that deal it's -- New York Yankees so well -- he's he's got to be out this entire season.
So -- get out of that contract anyway if they right now.
-- conspiracy theory that he's paddling where he's saying that he thinks the Yankees and maybe even Major League Baseball are conspiring together.
To push amounts -- that they don't have to pay that money is there any possibility your mind about the truth.
No that's not the truth to me he's pushed himself out.
You know surrounding yourself with your your own little you know posse of people that got him involved got -- involved with this stuff in the Dominican Republic.
He's he's probably one of the most hated baseball players right now -- why game.
And while he says a lot of the guys they they think -- a -- You know they they never have thought of -- him as a teen guy.
-- with Seattle Texas of the New York Yankees he was never -- -- 11 championship in his career.
Obviously one of the greatest players ever play ball went to admit to taking steroids that puts you where I don't you wanna be.
Already want to associate with that guy so and.
Do you right now baseball's finally -- candidate game.
Having me give me the bottom line in this hoping is that finally getting cleaners and -- show.
Now -- -- -- it's all perception and -- new commissioner you can't have a former owner as the commissioner Major League Baseball it's gone on to too long to -- And the more he keeps getting out front of this -- the games cleaned up the worse it looks on the game.
Rob thanks for coming on appreciate it might -- pleasure Melissa --
