Alex Rodriguez Newsbeat

Alex Rodriguez has his very own arcade machine called the ‘A-RodCade’

It appears that Rodriguez has his very own custom arcade system, appropriately titled “A-RodCade.” We have a lot of questions—how long has A-Rod had this? Just who made it for him?—but most important, we need to know exactly what games the A-RodCade contains. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? NBA Jam? A version of Street Fighter featuring nothing but A-Rods? Stay tuned.

News you need to know.

Alex Rodriguez shares his four-point plan to save baseball

Rodriguez wants the league and its broadcasters to implement live footage of what’s going on at all times within the ballpark. He wants MLB and Google to come together on sharing background information and social media posts from players. On every month’s first Tuesday, Rodriguez calls on the owners to charge just $10 per ticket.

Rodriguez’s final point is to implement microphones on every player, coach and manager during games. This certainly would appear to be the toughest one to get everyone on-board.

“We should also let fans hear and see players, managers and coaches during the game,” Rodriguez writes. “Imagine listening in on the conversation between Derek Jeter and me before the last three outs at the 2009 World Series. Now that’s great content for any fan.”

Sherman: How will next 5 years treat these borderline baseball legacies?

An anachronistic system with no transparency or accountability:

A six-member screening committee looks at every player who has been retired five years and who played at least 10 seasons. It takes two votes to be placed on the ballot, which the larger voting body receives each December.
