New movie coming out high lighting A Rod PED abuse and cheating the game while with the yankess.

 

"Screwball," which is set to premiere this Saturday at Doc NYC and will likely have a wider release as soon as spring of 2019, takes you on a fun trip back to when performance-enhancing drugs were all the rage in MLB and provides incredible details about A-Rod’s usage of PEDs (and all the things he did to try to keep it quiet) as well as that of other stars, such as Manny Ramirez and Ryan Braun, who also got busted..

 

The story dives into what happened after Rodriguez’s memorable news conference at spring training in 2009 when he admitted to using PEDs in the past and said that everyone should take his word on it that he wouldn’t use them again and to judge him on his actions from that day going forward. It goes into how A-Rod saw the success a juiced-up Manny, who would get hit with a 50-game suspension for PEDs, had with the Dodgers and asked Tony Bosch to get him on that program. It goes into how A-Rod hit three home runs in a game against the Royals shortly after starting treatments with Bosch. It goes into A-Rod’s battle with MLB to try to get his season-plus-long suspension overturned. It goes into Rodriguez paying protesters in pizza to show up outside of MLB’s NYC offices on the day of the arbitration hearing when he infamously kicked over a lawyer’s briefcase before storming out of the room.

“Our effort (in telling the story) isn’t to remind everyone what an a—— (Rodriguez) is,” Corben said, “it’s just to tell the truth in what happened in the story.”

But much like Corben’s other work, the tone of the film is done in such a fun way that it’s hard to look away from it during its 90-plus minutes.
