The Great American Past Time and MLB

On Monday, Major League Baseball suspended, Alex Rodriguez through 2014, totaling 211 games, and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece. 

Ryan Braun’s 65-game suspension last month and previous punishments makes it, 18 the total number of players disciplined for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Florida accused of distributing banned performing-enhancing drugs.

What started the whole chain of events? A Biogenesis employee by the name of Porter Fischer was deprived of a $4,000 investment.

According to reports, Tony Bosch, founder of Biogenesis, promised Fischer a 20% return that would come in weekly payments.

According to the L.A. Times, Lance Pugmire in his article, “What spurred MLB investigation? Disgruntled Biogenesis employee,” In January, using records Fischer pulled from Biogenesis, Miami New Times reported that Rodriguez and Cruz were among a large group of athletes whom, Tony Bosch had supplied with performance-enhancing substances.

Most notably, Fischer provided four notebooks filled with handwritten notes by Bosch that identified clients, drug doses and payments.

Also According to reports, MLB threatened Bosch, with lawsuits about the access to the documents and then paid for documents, in a way that police pay for information from informants, which would enhance their case against the accused.

Although MLB and their commissioner, Bud Selig will sit back and take credit for catching these PED users, if Fischer wouldn't have been deprived of his investment by Biogenesis’ founder Tony Bosch, then we would never be at this point of no return for  "The Great American Past Time!"

If A-Rod wasn't so fine, I would be upset with him. LOL But seriously he should have known better.
