• Report: Anthony Bosch Personally Injected A-Rod

    Via CBS -

    On the heels of an eye-opening report from the Miami New Times that alleged Alex Rodriguez and other baseball stars were still using performance-enhancing drugs; ESPN now claims the operator of the clinic the New Times highlighted personally injected A-Rod with PEDs.

    According to ESPN’s Outside the Lines, Anthony Bosch, who operated the Biogenesis clinic in Coral Gables, would get a text message late at night telling him to come to A-Rod’s house on Biscayne Bay. Once inside, he would inject performance-enhancing drugs into A-Rod.

    “Only Tony handled A-Rod,” a source told ESPN.

    Outside the Lines reported that other athletes “relied on intermediaries to transport the performance-enhancing drug regimens Bosch provided.”

    According to ESPN’s report, Bosch would visit A-Rod every few weeks, but said he’d been kicked out “after he had trouble locating a vein and infuriated the player.” ESPN said HGH and testosterone do not require veins, “but whatever he was doing, ‘Tony said A-Rod was pissed at him,’ a source said. ‘He said he was bleeding everywhere.’”

    ESPN reported multiple sources have reviewed the documents that detailed the drug regiments and schedules A-Rod received from Bosch.

    A-Rod has repeatedly denied the allegations since the New Times published its report on Monday. Rodriguez has in the past admitted to steroid use, but said he stopped almost a decade ago.

    Ball’s in your court Bud…

      This story is so bizarre. He was looking for a vein, but a vein wasn’t needed to inject him with PEDs. Sofa king weird.

      It’d be hilarious if he was pumping heroin into ARod’s body. After Bosch would leave then ARod starts singing “we all live in a yellow submarine”, looking at his centaur paintings and wondering why they look so much like a unicorn. Man this story is getting crazier by the day.

      What would be even better is if he was injecting ARod with cement, that would explain why his bat was so slow during the playoffs and prior.

      I’m guessing that the guy was trying to draw a blood specimen for testing rather than injecting something. I can’t imagine what substance would be injected directly into a vein and blood testing is useful to the PED’ers to measure both effectiveness and risk of detection. Regardless, being someone in the medical profession, I have to believe that getting into a vein for an athlete like Arod would be quite easy.

      Maybe is was inserting a masking agent into his blood?

      I have no idea how that works…just guessing.

      Anthony Bosch isn’t a doctor so it’s not surprising that he doesn’t know how to draw blood or properly inject into a client’s veins without making a mess.

      Very plausible, actually.

      @ MJ Recanati:Bosch wasn’t the one that made the “bloody mess”. It was someone who worked for Bosch, which prompted an “infuriated” A-Rod into “demanding” Bosch come to his house to give the treatments…

      All from the same source as the original report. Needs something to corroborate. Doesn’t have to be much. But there has to be something.
