Major League Baseball is persistent. They are not taking there foot off the pedal as they attempt to rid their sport of ped's. The last 5-10 years the players union and MLB have worked together to help the clean up the game while help to restore its credibility. However, here we go again with yet another scandal.
Major League Baseball is ready to suspend about 20 players with connections to Anthony Bosch and his Miami-area anti-aging clinic at the center of a performance-enhancing drug investigation, including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun.
Bosch, the founder of the Biogenesis of America clinic, has agreed to talk to baseball officials about players linked to performance-enhancing drugs.
MLB has sued Biogenesis of America and its operators, accusing them of scheming to provide banned PEDs to players in violation of their contracts.
Braun failed a drug test in 2011, but his suspension was overturned by an arbitrator. He has acknowledged that he was mentioned in Biogenesis records because his lawyers had used Bosch as consultant during the appeal.
If Rodriguez were suspended for 100 games, he would lose approximately $15 million. Still, the chances of Rodriguez' contract being voided are slim.
Rodriguez is rehabbing his surgically repaired hip and is not expected back until after the All-Star break. Stay tuned.
