"I know Gio," said manager Davey Johnson. "I believed him from the get-go. In his case, I wish they could have cleared it up earlier and made an announcement earlier."
The man who released documents allegedly showing how the now-shuttered Biogenesis clinic provided performance-enhancing drugs to athletes says he is not disclosing more client names because of how messy he thinks Major League Baseball's current investigation has gotten.
A former associate of Biogenesis head Tony Bosch said he turned down a $125,000 offer from Major League Baseball for documents said to implicate players in the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
In March, MLB filed a civil lawsuit that wasn't intended to right a wrong, but, instead, to dredge up evidence to punish players that otherwise wouldn't be obtainable and, in the process, tidy up the game that isn't as clean as Bud Selig believed.
Gonzalez has denied he ever received performance-enhancing drugs from Tony Bosch's now-closed Biogenesis of America clinic. ESPN reported Wednesday that Gonzalez was the only client named so far who had not received PEDs.
Drug scandals have become even more prevalent in recent years and it is enough to make a cynic wonder about any significant athletic feat: clean or not clean?
A detailed account from the Miami New Times listed Gonzalez among several star baseball players and other athletes linked to a Miami clinic called Biogenesis run by Anthony Bosch. The report, which was based on records obtained from the clinic as well as interviews with customers and former employees, was headlined by the inclusion of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
