Why stop during baseball? A-Rod could fire for these Fox jobs too
You only have to wish that Alex Rodriguez’s budding TV career doesn’t detract from his duties using a Yankees’ whole minor-league system.
We kid, of course, and entirely trust that A-Rod has a earnest destiny in broadcasting as prolonged as he wants one, as he continues to renovate his repute from PED-tainted luminary to an doubtful dear member of a ball companionship in good station in mixed platforms and facets of a game.
Rodriguez officially sealed on with FOX Sports as a full-time studio voice and occasional diversion researcher in a broadcasting counter on Tuesday, following considerable turns operative a past dual postseasons for a network.
A-Rod undoubtedly is gentle dissecting and deliberating a game, and he’s shown a eagerness to be vicious and a ability to be judicious that so many of his associate former players destroy to grasp while creation that transition in several sports.

But because stop there if you’re A-Rod, who creates a pop-culture addict inside of me immediately prognosticate him with repeated roles on some of Fox’s other primetime programming?
Perhaps as a coach for Bart on “The Simpsons” or for Chris Griffin on “Family Guy,” or for womanlike pitcher Ginny Baker on “Pitch” (if it gets renewed), or as a adore seductiveness for Zooey Deschanel’s impression on “New Girl” or as a cruel hip-hop noble on “Empire.”
Or heck, what about even a bit of domestic explanation on Fox News?

For now, A-Rod will have adequate on his image between his $21 million advisory role underneath Hal Steinbrenner to coach a Baby Bombers, and full-time researcher duties, that competence even one day shortly embody some Yankee games on a YES Network, of that Fox is a infancy owner.
Should Yankees put A-Rod in booth? YES!
How implausible would that turnaround be, if it’s not already, only a few years after Rodriguez took a scorched-earth proceed to fighting his full-season PED cessation in 2013 and 2014? Remember, a man sued MLB, a players’ organisation and a Yankees medical staff.
But initial things initial for Rodriguez, who pronounced in a matter on Tuesday that he’s “excited to continue operative with a FOX Sports family,” that featured an present and undisputable studio rapport final Oct with another tarnished former star, Pete Rose, as good as Hall of Fame slugger Frank Thomas.
Despite station only 4 home runs bashful of 700 for his career, Rodriguez done it transparent final month while portion as a guest instructor in open training in Tampa that his personification days indeed finished when he was expelled by a Yankees final August.
But we still will be saying copiousness of A-Rod on a radio sets this deteriorate and in entrance years.
