Performance Enhancing Drugs
Superstar second baseman Robinson Cano is being investigated by Major League Baseball about … what else? … potential ties to the Biogenesis clinic in Miami, according to ESPN.
According to reports, A-Rod bought documents from an ex-Biogenesis employee. His intention was to reportedly either destroy them or leak them in an effort to draw attention to other players.
“If guys are going to cheat, they’re going to cheat,” Youkilis said. “They’re also going to get caught now more than ever.”
You just hope it isn’t so. These days, there is no way of knowing who is using performance-enhancing drugs and who is not. But the idea that Robinson Cano has used PEDs is enough to sicken any baseball fan or official.
A list written in April by Biogenesis of America clinic founder Anthony Bosch named the two Yankees with dollar amounts next to their names, according to an ESPN report.
“My denials in the book have been documented all the way back, I believe, to 1997,” Piazza said. “I just don’t understand what part of ‘no’ people don’t understand.”
Alex Rodriguez will not report to spring training with the Yankees’ position players, and will work on his rehabilitation from hip surgery in New York. Meanwhile, Joe Girardi believes the Yankees “could win 95 games and get to the World Series.”
The drugs are evolving. The conversation must follow suit. It’s time to stop the anger and disappointment that spews everywhere from airwaves to columns to happy hours.
According to the New York Times, the league is now focusing on the University of Miami baseball team. Investigators believe that there may be a connection between the university’s baseball program and PED use, according to the newspaper.
“I would be surprised (if he didn’t return),” Sabathia said. “I know how hard he works and how much he cares about wanting to play and wanting to help the team. So I look for him to do everything he can to get back on the field and try to help us.’’
“I don’t comment on anyone until they speak first,” Jeter said on Monday. “Let him address his situation before I comment on it. Let him speak first and then we’ll talk about that.”
Cashman has to realize that his offense can still use a healthy, productive Rodriguez. It’s easy to dismiss him as finished after the way the 2012 season ended in October, but let’s not forget that there was a major injury present.
Alex Rodriguez has had Anthony Bosch personally come to his Miami home to inject performance-enhancing drugs, according to a report.
I’ve been alive and lucid for about 37 of the 47 Super Bowls, and it’s hard to recall a game this big shrink in the shadow of peripheral stories.
Of all the topics that Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis wanted to talk about at Super Bowl media day, deer-antler spray probably was not on the list.
