And boom goes the dynamite.
Major League Baseball dropped a bombshell late Monday afternoon when they suspended Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun in connection to the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic.
Braun's suspension spells trouble for any player who in connection to founder Tony Bosch's anti-aging clinic.
With Braun's admission to the use of performance enhancing drugs, the credibility of Bosch has been established. The one admission of guilt has instantaneously established Bosch has accurate information regarding players that have purchased PEDs from him.
Expect players connected to Biogenesis to drop like flies. These players include the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez, Fernando Martinez and Francisco Cervelli, the Blue Jay's Melky Cabrera, the Padres' Everth Cabrera and Yasmani Gandal, the A's Bartolo Colon, the Rangers' Nelson Cruz, the Mariners' Jesus Montero, the Tigers' Jhonny Peralta, the Mets' Cesar Puello and the Nationals' Gio Gonzalez (for legal substances).
Each and every single one of these players on this list (with the exception of maybe Gonzalez) will likely be suspended and Major League Baseball will send a gigantic message to the players that they are not tolerant of any use of performance enhancing drugs.
Major League Baseball is taking a huge step towards cleaning up the game and Ryan Braun will likely start a flood of admissions from the players on the list connected to Biogenesis.
The establishment of credibility for Bosch is a huge blow to Alex Rodriguez, who has vehemently denied any wrong doing or connection to the Biogenesis clinic. According to TJ Quinn of ESPN, Rodriguez may be facing more issues:
A-Rod will be a different story. MLB's case against him includes possibility he interfered with investigation. They'll go after him harder.— T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) July 22, 2013
Alex Rodriguez is facing huge repercussions to his nearly non-existent reputation and, at this point, is a lock to never being elected to the Hall of Fame because of his connection to performance enhancing drugs.
Braun's suspension is a huge blow to MLB's reputation and the credibility of the players.
