Major league ballplayers may be involved in doping

Jan 29 2013, 1:52pm CST | by

More allegations of doping by major league baseball players have surfaced involving Bosch Biogenesis, in Florida. Alex Rodriguez, who is mentioned in documents, denies allegations of using performance-enhancing-drugs.

MIAMI, Fla. – A Florida man, according to the Miami New Times, has been linked to supplying performance enhancing drugs to a number of major league ballplayers.

A self-proclaimed biochemist, Anthony Bosch, who reportedly is known in Latin-American baseball circles, distributed synthetic testosterone and human growth hormones to a number of players – among them Texas Rangers outfielder, Nelson Cruz.

Allegedly, outfielder Melky Cabera, pitcher Batolo Colon and catcher Yasmani Grandal were clients of Bosch. They were previously suspended from league play.

A former employee of Bosch Biogenesis clinic supplied the New Times with records alleging that Alex Rodriguez used HGH, testosterone cream and insulin-like growth factor, all of which are banned by MLB policy. Rodriquez denies the allegations.

As a result of various doping allegations, the MLB and the player's association have strengthened its performance-enhancing-drugs policies. The new measures include random blood testing for HGH and a more definitive test for synthetic forms of testosterone.

Jul 28 2014 3:49pm CDT | Source: SBNation

It's widely known that you don't make friends with salad. But did Just Salad make a powerful enemy in tweeting a photo of a glum A-Rod? It seemed simple, which in retrospect was the first sign that it wasn't. Nothing is simple, really, or at least not this simple. Nothing about Alex Rodriguez, nothing about the Internet, and nothing about those pick-your-own salad places, eit ...

Eliminating the shift a bandage for a phantom wound

Jul 23 2014 12:37pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Some people are never satisfied. Whoever first said, "Got what you wanted, lost what you had" was a genius. It's a far better way of saying, "Be careful what you wish for." Wishing implies payback received passively for an errant thought. We know the world doesn't work that way; we campaign actively for our own fates. In this life, you take exactly as much abuse as you allow yourself to take. Baseball builders know this: figures as div ...

Cristiano Ronaldo took a much needed break from soccer after Portugal was eliminated in the Group Stage of the 2014 World Cup.

Andrew Bynum's Unique Knee Procedure Wouldn't Save Middling NBA Career

Jul 19 2014 1:22pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Andrew Bynum is one of the great "what if" tales in recent NBA history. He's been an All-Star center, was a solid contributor on two championship teams and is just 26 years old. If only things were that simple.  The controversial Bynum hasn't played more than 65 games in a season since 2007 and a total of 26 since 2012, all of them coming last year in stints with Cleveland and Indiana. He's also dealt with a rash of injuries, mostly to his knees, that ha ...
