Brad Merriman – President/TACD Media LLC – Major League baseball has moved to suspend Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez for 211 games, which will mean he will not be playing again till the 2015 season. A-Rod is accused of being the catalyst between the anti aging Biogenesis clinic in south Florida and several other baseball players. It has also been announced that 12 other major League players will accept 50 game suspensions tied to this scandal.
With A-Rod being such an icon, and hero to many young children nationwide, one has to consider this may be the reason why his suspension was so severe. This past week rumors have spread about a possible ban for life from the sport, but it appears for now Rodriguez has dodged that bullet It is unknown at this time what will happen with A-Rod’s exorbitant $275 million dollar contract that is good until the year 2017.
