Embattled New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez — who vows to fight his one-year suspension for a performance-enhancing drug scandal — should give up the battle, sportscaster Jared Max says.

"I hope somebody in his family, or very close to him … gets to him and says, listen, man, it's enough, it's enough, give it up, move on," Max, a former 1050 ESPN New York radio, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Baseball's essentially said to him, enough, you've tainted us, you're a … liar, and you make us look badly — go away."

Story continues below.



On Monday, Rodriguez's lawyers filed suit in U.S. District Court alleging that arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, who handed down a 162-game ban, was guilty of bias and showed "manifest disregard for the law."

"[He] is one of the most talented, God-gifted athletes we've known, fantastically attractive, has more than any of us could ever want in a lifetime and, yet, I've never known anybody who is so fragile in his own skin," Max said.

"Look at what he's doing now. Kicking and screaming 'til no end as this goes on and the longer it goes on, I'm starting to feel badly."

Max believes the Bombers' third baseman is continuing to fight Major League Baseball because "he has the money….

"He can afford to do it and he is – I mean, I'm not a psychologist, but I'm pretty safe calling Alex a real narcissist and it's all about him."

On Sunday, Anthony Bosch, founder of the since-closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, told CBS' "60 Minutes" that Rodriguez paid him $12,000 a month for  banned drugs.
