A-Rod Madness To Kick Off At 1pm

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I don't know what new information could come out of an A-Rod press conference, but the admitted steroid user will speak to a horde of media members in Tampa today at 1:30pm. The Yankee will speak to anywhere from 150-300 media members, will be joined by his fellow teammates, and the presser will be aired on YES as well as being simulcast on ESPN and the MLB Network. Here's what the two national networks have planned.

ESPN: ESPN’s daily SportsCenter will present live coverage of the Alex Rodriguez press conference tomorrow (Tuesday) at 1:30 p.m. ET from Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla.

ESPNEWS will present the entire press conference, beginning its coverage at 1 p.m. with highlights of last Monday’s Peter Gammons-Rodriguez interview. It will re-air the press conference during the 4 p.m. and 7 p .m. hours. Hannah Storm and Bob Holtzman will report live from Tampa. ESPN Radio will also cover the press conference within its Tirico & Van Pelt show (1-3 p.m. M-F) with co-hosts Mike Tirico and Scott Van Pelt.

MLB Network: MLB Network today will air live coverage of the Alex Rodriguez press conference at the Yankees’ Spring Training facility in Tampa, beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET. MLB Network’s coverage will be anchored by Greg Amsinger along with Harold Reynolds, Barry Larkin and Billy Ripken, and will include reports and reaction from Jon Heyman and Joe Magrane, who are both in Tampa.
Wait....Billy Ripken? I didn't even know that he was a part of the MLB Network. I guess you learn something new everyday. As far as the press conference goes, I'll try to have video up later in the day for those of you who want to see it, but I'm certainly not looking forward to it.


Brother of cal made his debut yesterdays addition of hot stove....In the past couple of weeks they had a revolving seat of ex players with talking time Jeff Nelson, Mark McLemore - who was the best by far, and Cals little brother.

I know Sean "The Mayor" Casey is offically part of the team but imo has yet to really bring anything to the set. Except one word answers. Jon Heyman blows as well

Great. A repeat of last week when a guy admits to using steroids and that still not being good enough for the media...

Don't waste your time watching the conference. It was exactly the self-serving crap with completely ambiguous answers you would expect from a self-indulgent waste like A-Rod (And this coming from a Yankee fan). Basically the crux of it all was that he was 24 and young and stupid... even though at 24 you are an ADULT. Oh, and he didn't have time to grow up because he didn't go to college. Boohoo, you signed with the Mariners instead and made millions upon millions of dollars in the years after. Let us all pity this man and forgive him for all of his indiscretions! Blah.
