Welp, that was that…
Both Random House and HarperCollins Publishing houses have denied any truth to the NY Post report of a $5 million bidding war over an A-Rod tell all book, in which he bashes MLB.
The New York Daily News has reported the latest development:
“It’s totally fake,” said one publishing insider. The insider also said no house would be foolish enough to plunk down that kind of money for an A-Rod book project given the risks.
“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,” said the insider.“He’ll say anything as long as it’s not under oath.”
Another case of A-Rod being laughed away…seems like a growing trend for the disgraced third baseman.
Hopefully, for our sakes a book does get published…for entertainment value, of course.
