If everything concerning the Miami New Times article wasn't already filled with drama, yet another wrinkle was added on Tuesday morning.
According to the New York Daily News, Alex Rodriguez believes that there are forces in play that were created for the sole purpose of discrediting him.
Sources told the paper that Rodriguez believes that "bigger forces are at work to try to discredit him and sink his career."
According to sources:
“He’s scared, because he thinks this is so unbelievably false, and he’s wondering who could be behind this,” said a source, referring to last week’s Miami New Times report linking A-Rod to an alleged Miami-area performance-enhancing drug scandal. “He thinks something could be going on larger than anyone might think."
Maybe at some point when this story plays itself out, director Oliver Stone will ask for the movie rights.
Stay tuned, folks—more bizarre twists will no doubt be coming.
