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.

The cover story, which has already sparked denials from some implicated in the report, is definitely worth a read.
