Alex Rodriguez's alleged doping pattern revealed

Al Bello

Notebooks tied to Biogenesis connect Alex Rodriguez to "a suggested volume of doping almost unheard of in baseball."

The Miami New Times broke the story that launched the ongoing investigation into the rampant performance-enhancing drug ring that centers on Biogenesis, a south Florida company. The New Times has reviewed files of the now-defunct Biogenesis, including operator Tony Bosch's personal notebooks from 2009 through 2012.

...extensive use of drugs and supplements that were administered "literally morning, noon and night"

The contents of these notebooks connect New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez to extensive use of drugs and supplements that were administered "literally morning, noon and night," reports Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated.

The notes tie Rodriguez to "a suggested volume of doping almost unheard of in baseball," according to Verducci. The notebooks connect Rodriguez to at least 19 drugs and supplements, including banned substances testosterone and HGH. They also indicate that the drugs and supplements were administered via lozenges, creams and injections.

For his part, Rodriguez has issued a statement denying being treated by Bosch. Bosch has also denied association with any of the players named.

Major League Baseball has asked The New Times for the notebooks and other information pertaining to Biogenesis so that they can continue the investigation into the alleged players and others not named in the initial report. The New Times editor, Chuck Strouse, has said that the publication is "deliberating" on the request, as it hasn't yet handed information over to MLB.
