NY Post – A report alleges that Alex Rodriguez leaked information about his fellow players — including Yankees teammate Francisco Cervelli — concerning their involvement in Biogenesis. If true, it could back Major League Baseball’s assertion that the Yankees’ beleaguered third baseman obstructed its investigation of the now-shuttered anti-aging clinic in South Florida. “60 Minutes” reported that, in February, members of A-Rod’s inner circle obtained handwritten documents from Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch and then leaked them to Yahoo! Sports, which was the first to report the names of Cervelli as well as Brewers star Ryan Braun. Bosch has since become MLB’s star witness in its investigation. While Braun and Cervelli’s names were redacted in the original Miami New Times report, members from Rodriguez camp released them to Yahoo! Sports. Rule 6(A)(2) of the Joint Drug Agreement reads, “Any and all information relating to a Player’s involvement in the Program, including, but not limited to, the fact or the results of any Prohibited Substance testing to which the Player may be subject, and any discipline imposed upon the Player by the Commissioner’s Office shall remain strictly confidential.” David Cornwell, A-Rod’s attorney, said in a statement to “60 Minutes,”: “The allegations are untrue and are another attempt to harm Alex — this time by driving a wedge between Alex and other players in the game. While Alex focuses on baseball and repeatedly states that he is going to respect the appeal process, the drumbeat of false allegations continues.” Cervelli is now serving a 50-game suspension, as are 11 other players indicted in the Biogenesis scandal, and Braun is serving a 65-game suspension. All 13 players accepted baseball’s penalty. The Yahoo! report also identified Baltimore’s Danny Valencia, who was cleared by MLB.
Alright nobody likes a rat. Especially one that snitches on his own teammate. But here’s the thing – anyone who goes out of their way to fuck over Bud Selig and Major League Baseball is A-OK in my book. Like Francisco Cervelli fucking sucked. Guy could barely crack a major league squad while cheating. Who cares about him. Ryan Braun is the biggest cocksucker of all. Definitely don’t care about him. More importantly, its sounds more like this was “obstructing the investigation.” Not that his leaked report was the only smoking gun that screwed these guys over. They were inevitably gonna be caught, its just that MLB prefers all their names to remain confidential, most likely so they can think of a way they will let their superstars off the hook so they can continue to reap the benefits of PEDs.
So really this is all about Arod just trying to fuck over baseball. Throw a wrench in their whole ass-backwards process. If they want to crucify Arod publicly, then all the other guys on that list who cheated the same way he did need to out there too. I don’t think Arod is some sort of hero for leaking names to the press, but he’s just trying to defend himself from this outrageous crusade baseball and the media has launched against him.
Release ALL the names. Punish EVERYONE harshly. And lets move the fuck on.
