The talk of sports media this week comes from our sister paper Miami New Times, which has uncovered a South Florida clinic that allegedly gave performance-enhancing drugs to some high-profile athletes, notably Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.
A former employee of Biogenesis, the company in question, gave damaging records to the New Times' Tim Elfrink, who takes a close look in print at Anthony Bosch, the chief of the clinic. Bosch reportedly had ties to a string of sports stars, including Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colón, Wayne Odesnik, Yuriorkis Gamboa and Nelson Cruz.
