Found January 29, 2013 on Bronx Pinstripes:
  The Miami New Times reported a list of players, including Alex Rodriguez, who are allegedly connected to a PED clinic located in Miami. Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez, and Melky Cabrera are also notable players mentioned in this story. The names in the report come from records from Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic in Miami that was run by entrepreneur Anthony Bosch. The names were given to the New Times by an employee of the clinic, who gave out the records before Biogenesis closed down last month. This facility in Miami has business records that indicate they were selling drugs such as: PEDs, HGH, testosterone, and anabolic steroids. Since Biogenesis acted as an anti-aging clinic, it deemed selling these drugs appropriate and legal since they were treating age as a disease. MLB issued this statement in light of today’s events: “We are always extremely disappointed to learn of potential links between players and the use of performance-enhancing substances and have been active in the issues that have emerged in South Florida… [B]anned substances… have no place in our game.” As for Rodriguez, this looks terrible. Even though he has already denied being involved with this clinic, it is hard to give him the benefit of the doubt since he has admitted to using PEDs while playing in Texas. The Yankees have not commented yet on what they will do concerning their high-priced third-baseman, but it is a story that will have to be followed as possibly more evidence may come out, digging A-Rod into a deeper hole. Here is a New Times article on every mention of Alex Rodriguez. Do the Yankees simply cut him loose? Probably not. They owe him too much money, but they have to feel somewhat betrayed by him and would want to distance themselves from this ugly situation if they could. A trade is out of the option though, since no team would take his contract to begin with and throw in a possible suspension and you have your hands tied even more. It will be interesting to hear from the Yankee brass on their thoughts on this situation. Also, it is interesting to note that Cashman told the media a few days ago that A-Rod may miss the entire 2013 season. Did the Yankee front office know this story was going to break? Did they want to leave themselves an escape route? Possibly, and I would not be surprised if they knew, but the public will probably never know if Cashman knew or not. Purely speculation on my part. However, we will know more as more people come out and speak, but the Yankees have to be concerned about Alex Rodriguez’s future in pinstripes. Lastly, and not to go unnoticed, the Youkilis signing just got more important. If A-Rod does miss more of the season than expected, they have to hope Youkilis pans out for more than the half-season fill-in at third base that they hoped. By the time April 1 roles around, Youkilis may be the official everyday third-baseman for the Yankees.
