Alex Rodriguez Newsbeat

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

ESPN may re-work ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’ but A-Rod is safe

The person making this decision needs to be fired and his exact opposite needs to take his place.

Former New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will be back on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” next season, but the rest of the broadcast team could be different. ESPN is considering making changes in the broadcast booth next season, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.

Alex Rodriguez got crushed for his bizarre take on even and odd leads

Alex Rodriguez was a great baseball player, even if he was juiced up for much of his career.

But he struggles as an announcer, which anyone who has watched even a little bit of a Sunday Night Baseball broadcast can attest too.

If ESPN is not forcing a wacky appearance by his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, then A-Rod can often be found rambling on and on and on and not always making sense.

That happened during Sunday night’s Mets-Phillies game when he suggested the Phillies drop a sacrifice bunt to get a runner to third because it could help the team eventually get a two-run lead.

Clearly, he’s been taking J. Geils Band albums to heart.
