Are you ready for an Alex Rodriguez tell-all? The New York Yankees slugger is reportedly in a bidding war between publishers Harper Collins and Random House, for the rights to a tell-all book. The focus of the book being on the machine that is Major League Baseball. There are also conversations of a documentary too, by Miami-based filmmaker Billy Corben who produced the ESPN “30 for 30” special, “Broke.”
Alex has also recently had several meetings with filmmaker Billy Corben — whose work includes the acclaimed “Cocaine Cowboys,” which depicts Miami drug culture in the 1970s and ’80s — about making a documentary about his battle to stay on the field.
A source tells us: “A number of publishers are vying for the book, with offers coming in over $5 million. Alex has met with several publishers over the past few weeks and has meetings with others right after the new year.
“This book is going to go into the real low-down dirt of MLB tactics and collusion with the Yankees to get him out of the game. Alex has also had meetings with Billy Corben on a ‘30 for 30’-type documentary about his story.”
The book offer could net ARod $5 million.
