Report: DEA & MLB probing advisor connected to A-Rod

By

MLB and the DEA are probing a Miami-area man named Anthony Bosch about his possible link to performance enhancing drugs, reports the Daily News. Bosch, who provides training and nutrition advice, has been connected to several Latin American players in South Florida, including Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez.

This information isn’t anything new. MLB and DEA first started probing Bosch (and his father) way back in 2009, but I guess they’re ramping things up because of all the Latin American players (Melky Cabrera, Yasmani Grandal, Bartolo Colon, etc.) who tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone in 2012. A-Rod‘s connection is pretty loose here and it looks like the Daily News just slapped his name on the report for effect. Either way, I’m sure we’ll hear more about this at some point.

    Meanwhile David Ortiz is still deep in self investigation of his reported PED usage. He will get back to us never….

    This is just asking for a massive troll fest

    This is good news. We’ve heard enough about A-Rod’s use of PEDs. Let’s hope nothing new comes out of this. Don’t need a suspension on top of the time he’ll miss due to injuries.

      Hey Cris, you have any info on getting Yankee Tickets to the series in Colorado? I noticed that you can’t just get single game tickets for just that series. I saw you talking yesterday about a lottery or something, is that process over already?

      • Cris Pengiucci says:

        I put in my request a while back and was notified yesterday. Early ticket sales begin on Monday. I assume any unsold tickets will become available when the rest of the single game ticket sales begin. Check the Rockies Web site. Wish I was able to provide you with more info.

    I guess we signed a guy named Thomas Neal for the OF mix.

    Apparently you dont read much. The Daily News is the most respected newspaper on the planet. The in depth investigations of all things lindsay lohan and people getting hit by subway cars set a new standard for the Pulitzer prize.

    There is no conceivable reason that HGH should not be allowed in sports. If there is something that does not effect your health in a negative way and is a progression of science that can make a person heal faster then the fact that it is illegal in sports is silly. Steroids and synthetic testosterone is one thing, because it is seriously detrimental to your health and essentially turns you into a super human (see the 1998 home run derby at Fenway). Once the old men go away in baseball, the right things will be allowed to benefit these players. Banning HGH is ridiculous. Just wait until Testosterone Replacement Therapy for older players becomes the new “cool” steroid method.
