New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez rakes in $28 million a year to play ball. He’s currently on the disabled list for a quadriceps strain, that after being sidelined for hip surgery.
His $28 million breaks down to 89 cents a second, more than $3,000 an hour or $538,000 a week. Could it all go away? If A-Rod is suspended for his reported connection to Biogenesis, a clinic that allegedly issued performance enhancing drugs, it just might.
Major League Baseball has already suspended the Milwaukee Brewers’ Ryan Braun for the rest of the season, without pay, for his involvement with the Biogenesis clinic. Braun apologized Monday for "mistakes," but stopped short of admitting he had used performance-enhancing drugs.
CBS is reporting A-Rod could receive a lifetime ban from baseball for 'allegedly' using performance enhancing drugs. One source said there is more evidence against A-Rod than there was against Braun.
