The former owner of a South Florida anti-aging clinic pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of illegally providing performance-enhancing drugs to athletes including high-profile Major League Baseball players.
The former owner of the clinic at the center of Major League Baseball’s recent performance-enhancing drug scandal had his bail revoked Monday because of recent positive tests for cocaine use.
According to ESPN, authorities are considering giving Major League Baseball the information that it wants. If and when the league gets the names, suspensions will likely be handed down quickly.
The DEA’s investigation into Tony Bosch’s operation “revealed previously unnamed MLB players,” according to ESPN’s T.J. Quinn. And those names, he reported, are bound to be released.
The former clinic owner accused of selling PEDs to Alex Rodriguez agreed to plead guilty in what prosecutors called a wide-ranging conspiracy to distribute steroids to both major-league ballplayers and high-school athletes.
A lawyer for MLB, Matthew Menchel, confirmed Wednesday the league dropped its case against Biogenesis of America, its owner Anthony Bosch and several other individuals.
Since most men don’t have the time, money, and desperation for such municipal waste, we have the A-Rod apologist, who, like their fallen icon, has resorted to vast swaths of illogical reasoning, deflection, and denial in his defense.
Joe Tacopina suggested Monday that A-Rod — who is suing the league for what he calls a witch hunt — could file “additional actions” and defamation lawsuits based on assertions made by Anthony Bosch and MLB’s COO.
Whatever synapse says “stop” never found its way to Rodriguez. Among the myriad malaprops and missteps, he never knew when to say when. And that is what killed what should have been a dream life.
Major League Baseball’s key witness in its case against Alex Rodriguez said he designed and administered an elaborate doping program for the 14-time All-Star starting in 2010.
According to CBS News, Bosch claims that he personally delivered banned substances, including testosterone, insulin-like growth factor 1 and human growth hormone to Rodriguez on multiple occasions and Rodriguez paid him $12,000 a month in cash.
In what is now becoming the arbitration with no ending, Yankees President Randy Levine testified on Day 10 of the Alex Rodriguez appeal of his unprecedented 211-game suspension.
A Florida police department has reopened an investigation into the theft of documents related to baseball’s inquiry into whether Alex Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs.
“It is sad that Commissioner Selig once again is turning a blind eye, knowing that crimes are being committed under his regime,” Rodriguez said. “I have 100 percent faith in my legal team.”
It’s the old formula for A-Rod. Deny, deny, deny until somebody proves otherwise. The way baseball is stumbling around with this, they may never prove anything.
