At some point Alex Rodriguez, the richest man in baseball in the world, struck up a friendship with the third richest person in the world, Warren Buffett. Well now A-Rod is going to the Oracle of Omaha for advice on his baseball career.
Warren Buffett, a billionaire investor and philanthropist, reportedly advised Alex Rodriguez to accept a contract from the New York Yankees behind his agent, Scott Boras' back.
Buffett and Rodriguez have been buddies for a few years now, and A-Rod contacted him after he began to feel frustration with the aftermath of his opting out fiasco. The sides have apparently reached a 10-year deal worth a ridiculous $275 million that should be finalized early this week.
I like to imagine that they sit around sipping brandy playing cards late into the night while discussing economic theory, sodomy, and the infield-fly rule.
