Alex Rodriguez sought advice on legal nutritional supplements from the founder of the company at the center of the largest federal criminal investigation into sports doping, according to the New York Daily News.
Remember when BALCO fell like the Roman Empire? Somewhere in the ashes, we assumed that a fatal blow was struck against dopers and dealers. We thought that the eye of the steroid storm had drifted off to the sea of history. How’s that going?

In an unusual verdict coming out of a federal courtroom on Wednesday, Barry Bonds was convicted of obstruction of justice but a mistrial was declared on all three perjury counts against him.
