When you have as many
syringes skeletons in your closet as Alex Rodriguez, the idea of writing a tell-all book isn't too far fetched!
So when rumors began swirling that publishing companies Random House and HarperCollins were offering as much as $5 million for the beleaguered baseballer to spill the beans, it seemed pretty believable!
One insider reveals:
"It’s totally fake. One reason he’d never get anywhere near that money is the obvious risk that as soon as the book was published, it could and probably would be discredited. He’ll say anything as long as it’s not under oath."
We gotta admit, we're a little disappointed!
Sure, baseball isn't the most exciting sport in the world. But with all of the allegations of having sex with prostitutes, we were kind of hoping for a 50 Shades of Grey meets Moneyball sort of thing!
Oh well! Guess we'll just have to keep dreaming!
