New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez said he wasn’t going to go down without a fight and late Thursday, he threw down another gauntlet with Major League Baseball by filling a lawsuit claiming MLB is part of a “witch hunt” to force him out of the game, according to the New York Times.
As New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez awaits his punishment for his role in the Biogenesis/performance enhancing drug scandal, problems could be mounting for the former head of Biogenesis, Anthony Bosch.
Alex Rodriguez still has yet to put on a New York Yankees uniform this season, but the biggest question now is will he ever put on the pinstripes again?
New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has made hundreds of millions of dollars throughout his baseball career. But it’s possible one million dollars could be the final nail in A-Rod’s career.
The performance-enhancing drug scandal that includes Major League Baseball stars Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, and others may be about to take another dramatic turn.
Major League Baseball players implicated in the Biogenesis scandal have largely remained quiet about the charges, but minor league players have been discussing their interactions with Anthony Bosch of Miami with MLB investigators, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Major League Baseball hasn’t even started to question Anthony Bosch or the players involved with the former clinic owner, but with his credibility already in question a report from the New York Daily News won’t help MLB in the court of public opinion.
When former Biogenesis owner Anthony Bosch reportedly agreed to cooperate with Major League Baseball, it could be the opening of Pandora’s Box when it comes to drugs in the sport. But, Major League Baseball should also tread carefully based on another major scandal.
Major League Baseball is planning to file a lawsuit Friday against multiple people linked to the Biogenesis clinic that has been connected to performance enhancing drug use by athletes by multiple published reports.
On the heels of an eye-opening report from the Miami New Times that alleged Alex Rodriguez and other baseball stars were still using performance-enhancing drugs; ESPN now claims the operator of the clinic the New Times highlighted personally injected A-Rod with PEDs.
