He is back!!!!
New York – Fresh off working as a guest studio analyst during FOX Sports’ coverage of Major League Baseball’s historic postseason run in 2016, World Series Champion and three-time American League Most Valuable Player, Alex Rodriguez, joins FOX Sports, as a full-time analyst. The announcement of Rodriguez’s multi-year deal with the network was made today by John Entz, President of Production & Executive Producer, FOX Sports.
In addition to reprising his role as FOX MLB studio analyst, Rodriguez expands his broadcasting responsibilities to serve as a game analyst for select FOX MLB SATURDAY telecasts as well as feature reporter for FOX’s MLB pregame coverage and FS1 studio show MLB WHIPAROUND
Alex Rodriguez comeback tour is in full force. This story arc is flat out from a movie. Star excels throughout career, has set back then overcomes (PED 1), has set back then overcomes (PED 2), has set back and overcomes (suspension to contributor to released from the team to analyst).
A-Rod knows the game of baseball like few others. He has shown that his knowledge is substantial and that his charisma plays on camera. I wish we saw more of this from him during his time with the Yankees, but he was either on steroids or was trying to do things “The Yankee Way”.
He has proved he has the analyst chops and charisma especially last year while working with Frank Thomas and Pete Rose. He has a genuine love and admiration for the game and I think that really resonates with the audience.
I’m excited because it seems like a lot of the “analysts” are former ball-players that aren’t that exciting or can not relay the message that they want.A-rod is well-spoken, clear, and concise which makes him a great analyst.
I would love to see him get in the booth and do some play-by-play or work a as a Paul O’Neil/David Cone type role on occasion.
Either way, good for A-rod the Rodreinessance (? hey let’s roll with it) continues
