Topic - Anthony Bosch
Major League Baseball has withdrawn its lawsuit against a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic at the center of the scandal involving use of banned substances by players, including New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.
If Anthony Bosch were still in business today, bet on this much: His phone would be buzzing nonstop with athletes trying to order the A-rod treatment.
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association in an effort to overturn the season-long drug suspension imposed last weekend by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. Here are five things to know about the complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan:
Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball and its players' union, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was "clear and convincing evidence" he used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sport's drug investigation.
Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and its players' union Monday, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was "clear and convincing evidence" the New York Yankees star used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sport's drug investigation.
Bosch said he began working with Rodriguez — who was motivated by his pursuit of 800 career home runs — five days before the New York Yankees third baseman hit his 600th homer on Aug. 4, 2010. Bosch said the first words out of Rodriguez's mouth were: "What did Manny Ramirez take in 2008 and 2009?"
Major League Baseball's key witness in its case against Alex Rodriguez said he designed and administered an elaborate doping program for the 14-time All-Star starting in 2010.
Rodriguez also would be sidelined for any postseason games this year under the ruling announced Saturday, which costs him $25 million of the $86 million remaining on his contract.
One of Alex Rodriguez's lawyers wants Major League Baseball to release testimony about whether Commissioner Bud Selig knew Anthony Bosch distributed banned substances to teenagers.
Major League Baseball's No. 2 executive testified that the sport wasn't concerned if the head of a Florida clinic distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLB's sole interest was his relationship with players under investigation, a person familiar with the Alex Rodriguez grievance hearing told The Associated Press.
The lawsuit, filed Thursday in New York State Supreme Court, seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages for what it alleges was a relentless campaign by the league and Selig to "destroy the reputation and career of Alex Rodriguez."
Alex Rodriguez said Wednesday he's cutting off all non-baseball talk after a wild weekend of accusations and retaliations on and off the field.
Pick through the debris from the Nationals' busted season and few scraps elicit more head-scratching than Monday's acquisition of David DeJesus.
Major League Baseball's evidence against Alex Rodriguez is so weak he shouldn't serve even one inning of his 211-game suspension, the lawyer for the Yankees slugger said Monday.
Bosch replied "10:30."
And it faulted Horowitz for denying Rodriguez's request to have a different arbitrator hear the case, for not ordering baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to testify and for allowing Biogenesis of America founder Anthony Bosch to claim Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination in refusing to answer questions during cross-examination.
