What impact will A-Rods confession have on baseball this season, or his standing with the New York Yankees who are paying him $275 mil? Will another black eye to MLB add to a possible slow year for sales in baseball tickets? It may not change much in New York where a brand new Yankee Stadium awaits A-Rod on April 16th, but on the road things will be different. Fans of A-Rod will stay away, haters will show up as they did with Barry Bonds and have extra ammo to sling throughout the game in A-Rods direction.
Lucky for him, A-Rod was never called to testify about steroid use under oath or he could be facing similar problems that Bonds is experiencing. He may have lied in past interviews when asked about steroid use, but it wasn’t illegal or banned at the time so facing fellow teammates and the public will be his penalty.
This is not what MLB needed in an already tough time, but they still have the most affordable professional sport to attend and that should keep the fans coming.
