A-Rod apparently wants to be a role model to fans and other players, even though he is right in the middle of this Biogenesis scandal. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Rodriguez had this to say,
Look, it’s concerning. I have two daughters at home, and I’m sensitive to that, and above all, I want to be a role model, continue to be a role model — especially to my girls.
This is crazy because Rodriguez could be acing a big suspension in the coming days, possibly for a whole season, or even more. Personally, I think his time to be a role model has past. All of the evidence points to him as a user of biogenesis, or in other words, a cheater. However, I don’t think it’s too late to be a role model to his kids. If that’s what he wants to do, then he should just come clean if he actually did it, as being honest is a great way to improve one’s character.
Regardless of the length of said suspension, it’s been reported that Rodriguez and his lawyers will fight the decision with an appeal.
So with the decision possibly coming in the coming days, if you were Bud Selig, what would you choose to do? How long would you suspend A-Rod? Let me know down below!
