Biogenesis of America
An MLB source told CBS Evening News’ Jim Axelrod that the five-time American League home-run champion could be looking at a lifetime ban. So will the three-time American League MVP cut a deal with the league?
Ryan Braun was suspended without pay for the rest of the season and the postseason Monday in the first penalty following MLB’s investigation of the Florida clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.
“You know what, when the Yankees want to announce something, (we will),” Cashman told ESPN. “Alex should just shut the f— up. That’s it. I’m going to call Alex now.”
A league executive told CBS News that Anthony Bosch could implicate up to 25 players, including some stars not currently connected to the firestorm.
Unlike Alex Rodriguez, there is nothing to suggest that superstar second baseman Robinson Cano is among the roughly 20 players who might be suspended for their ties to the Biogenesis of America clinic, according to a report.
Steinbrenner can repeat “innocent until proven guilty” all he wants as far as the current investigation goes. If nothing else, A-Rod suffers from guilt by association.
