MLB seems to be just grasping at straws here:
Two sources familiar with the case told “Outside the Lines” that MLB was looking for a man with a similar name believed to have been a black-market PED connection for Bosch, though it turned out not to be da Silveira.
“They realize he has no involvement whatsoever with Biogenesis or distributing performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes,” said Emil Infante, who represents the 30-year-old da Silveira.

Is it still funny when someone gets hit in the eye?
John Coomer allegedly suffered a detached retina and other injuries when a foil-wrapped hot dog flung by Royals mascot Sluggerrr smacked him in the left eye. A jury ruled in March 2011 for the Royals, finding that being struck by airborne groceries was an inherent risk that Coomer assumed by buying a ticket. The Missouri Western District Court of Appeals disagreed, however.
“The risk of being hit in the face by a hot dog is not a well-known incidental risk of attending a baseball game,” the court ruled. “Consequently, a plaintiff may not be said to have consented to, and voluntarily assumed, the risk by attending the game.”

It’s TMZ Marital Discord Day at BBTF:
... Jamie says based on the valuation of assets Frank’s team provided ... she agreed to accept a $131 million settlement plus a few other things.
Jamie now says Frank cooked the books by undervaluing the Dodgers assets at less than 1/10 their actual value. Jamie says their total assets were more than $1.7 BILLION.
Jamie says based on the real numbers, she should have received more than $900 million.
That might give her enough to buy the Mets.
