A-Rod linked to recent purchases of PED

An explosive report in the Miami New Times on Tuesday asserts that Alex Rodriguez purchased illegal performance-enhancing drugs from an anti-aging clinic in South Florida over the prior four years.

The newspaper obtained records from Biogenesis, a clinic that has closed and was owned by Anthony Bosch, the son of a prominent Florida physician who was linked with slugger Manny Ramirez when baseball suspended Ramirez for illegal PED usage in 2009. According to the newspaper, the records repeatedly mention A-Rod, as well as many other well-known baseball players. A-Rod, of course, confessed in 2009 to using illegal PEDs while with Texas from 2001 through 2003 and has repeatedly said that he hasn’t used anything since.

 Alex Rodriguez.

MLB released a statement Tuesday in light of the report and said they are in the "midst of an active investigation."

"We have the best and most stringent drug testing policy in professional sports, we continue to work with our doctors and trainers to learn what they are seeing day-to-day and we educate our players about the game’s unbending zero-tolerance approach," the statement read.

"We remain fully committed to following all leads and seeking the appropriate outcomes for all those who use, purchase and are involved in the distribution of banned substances, which have no place in our game. We are in the midst of an active investigation and are gathering and reviewing information. We will refrain from further comment until this process is complete.”

The Yankees will not act upon this information until Major League Baseball vets it, according to an industry source, and that figures to take a while.

“We fully support the Commissioner’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the team said in a statement. "This matter is now in the hands of the Commissioner’s Office. We will have no further comment until that investigation has concluded.”

This could lead to A-Rod getting suspended by baseball if this evidence is able to be obtained and authenticated, but that’s quite a few steps away.

And what is this information? According to the clinic’s records obtained by the newspaper, A-Rod -- identified in the records as “Alex Rodriguez,” “Alex Rod” or “Cacique,” the name of a pre-Columbian Caribbean chief -- paid $3,500 in 2009 for what is identified as “1.5/1.5 HGH (sports perf.) creams test., glut., MIC, supplement, sports perf. Diet."

Both human growth hormone and testosterone cream are banned by baseball.

Another record links “Cacique” to IGF-1, a banned substance in baseball that stimulates insulin production and muscle growth.

A-Rod’s infamous cousin Yuri Sucart, who was purported to be A-Rod’s drug mule from 2001 to 2003, is also identified on the records, having paid Bosch $500 for a weeklong supply of HGH in 2009.

Another page from a notebook labeled “2012” features this wording: “He is paid through April 30th. He will owe May 1 $4,000... I need to see him between April 13-19, deliver troches, pink cream, and... May meds. Has three weeks of Sub-Q (as of April)."

Elsewhere in his notebooks, the newspaper reports, Bosch writes that "Sub-Q" refers to his mixture of HGH, IGF-1, and other drugs.

Other baseball players identified in the clinic’s records are former Yankees Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon, both of whom were suspended from baseball last year; Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez and Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz.

His 2009 post season was epic, maybe one of the best ever.

He only had hundred's of millions of dollars at stake- no reason to take PED's. Carry on.

He will get in, just like Bonds and Clemmens.  All rightfully so, too.

.  For the next 20 years, 90% of players eligible for hall of fame will be Latinos and black. Can't think of other white super star right now besides Clemens.

Ray Lewis was also on that list

Ray Lewis Reportedly Linked to Banned Substance During Recovery from Torn Tricep










The two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl never fail to produce their fair share of intriguing storylines.

In this case, one of the more fascinating reports, although yet to be confirmed, involves Baltimore Ravens superstar linebacker Ray Lewis, who has reportedly been linked to a banned substance. This substance is a "deer-antler velvet extract" that is thought to have been used during his recovery from a torn tricep this season, according to a Sports Illustrated story posted by David Epstein and George Dohrmann on Tuesday.

Lewis suffered a torn tricep muscle in a Week 6 win over the Dallas Cowboys back in October. He would miss the rest of the regular season, but returned for the Ravens' AFC Wild Card win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The following excerpts detail how S.W.A.T.S. (Sports with Alternatives to Steroids) owner Mitch Ross helped assist Lewis in his injury rehab during this past regular season (via SI's Epstein and Dohrmann):


    Ross says he provided the products free of charge...All Ross wanted in return, he told Lewis, is for the future Hall of Famer to tell the truth -- that he used S.W.A.T.S. products -- when he returned to the field.

    Ross prescribed a deluxe program, including holographic stickers on the right elbow; copious quantities of the powder additive; sleeping in front of a beam-ray light programmed with frequencies for tissue regeneration and pain relief; drinking negatively charged water; a 10-per-day regimen of the deer-antler pills that will "rebuild your brain via your small intestines" (and which Lewis said he hadn't been taking, then swallowed four during the conversation); and spritzes of deer-antler velvet extract (the Ultimate Spray) every two hours."Spray on my elbow every two hours?" Lewis asked."No," Ross said, "under your tongue."








Lewis has played a key role in all three of Baltimore's postseason wins this January and is obviously a huge reason why the team is playing for a Super Bowl title in New Orleans this coming weekend. The 37-year-old leads all postseason tacklers with 44 combined tackles, and is set to retire at season's end.

I read in the paper a few days back that A-Rod just had hip surgery a couple of weeks back in NYC.

I wonder whether he is considering retirement any time soon.

Exactly..

There are 5 things A-Rod cares most about in life:

(1) A-Rod
(2) A-Rod
(3) A-Rod
(4) His Money
(5) A-Rod (again)
(5) His Kids

5th place is a dead tie, but I think he sways more towards himself.

If you make 400+ million in earnings over your lifetime, a bullshit Hall of Fame entry means jackshit.  He already has the name recognition and the record to be remember as one of the sport's best, now with all that money, he can live like a king with international recognition. 

Who gives a shit about the hall of fame?
