Alex Rodriguez: Talk of Illegal Poker Ring Confirms A-Rod's Stupidity
Only Alex Rodriguez would get wrapped up in talk of an illegal poker ring.
This isn't the first time that A-Rod has gotten lumped in with illegal card games, and now, a gossip website has accused the New York Yankees slugger of taking part in another ring after being exposed for his involvement in a high-stakes Hollywood game a couple of months ago.
Now, Rodriguez is caught up again, proving that he has no idea how to stay away from controversy.
Poker pro Dan Bilzerian told Star how the slugger’s first foray into the elite poker circle quickly turned into a fiasco.
That game was hosted at investor and record label owner Cody Leibel’s $16.5 million Beverly Hills mansion, and cocaine was openly used.
Bilzerian told Star: “Molly ran one game at Cody’s mansion. [One player] got all coked up. Everyone had to chase Cody down for the money, and he later paid me a sum and gave me a watch but stiffed me for $100,000.”
So let me get this straight, Rodriguez was in not one, but two illegal gambling rings? I know that tabloid reports are skeptical at best, and if this story is true, it is stunning commentary on the slugger's stupidity.
Rodriguez has to come out and tell the truth about this, because at this point, it's obvious that he likes to gamble, and there's nothing wrong with that. However, when you're a professional athlete, and it gets to the point that you're being accused of being around people doing serious drugs and crazy things going down around the game, it has gone too far.
At this point, it's time for him to go to casinos to gamble and leave the illegal rings to the rest of society, because in New York, where the media will jump on any story, it's borderline insane to risk getting busted. Rodriguez is in hot water, and the last thing he wants to deal with is questions about gambling when he's trying to come back from injury and get involved in a race for the division title.
Few baseball players have gotten involved in more bizarre stories than Rodriguez, and this is just another to add to the list.
