A-Rod adviser probed for PEDs

The Drug Enforcement Administration and Major League Baseball are investigating a Miami-area man named Anthony Bosch — who has worked closely with Alex Rodriguez — for Bosch’s possible links to performance-enhancing drugs, sources have told the Daily News. The sources asked not to be identified because of the ongoing probe.

Bosch, a well-known figure among current and former Latin ballplayers in South Florida, has advised the embattled Yankee superstar on nutrition, dietary supplements and training, a source familiar with Miami-area anti-aging centers told The News.

The source said Rodriguez and Bosch consulted with at least one other expert about blood test results. Bosch, records show, has been affiliated with a number of Miami-area medical companies and clinics.

Major League Baseball investigators have turned over information about Bosch and his father, physician Pedro Publio Bosch, to federal investigators, sources have told the Daily News. Bosch and his father had already come under scrutiny from MLB and the DEA in 2009 for their links to Manny Ramirez after the then-Dodgers slugger was suspended that year for 50 games for using a banned substance.

Thanks to Carlos.

Did it involve any of the cavity-searching kind?

This is extremely serious. If this guy has been helping A-Rod evade e MLB drug testing program the last few years, he owes Alex a compete refund.

This is journalist code for "my aunt Estelle."

Seriously, this has got to be the weakest source description ever penned.

Au contraire, ARod has not once tested positive for centaurism.

Much more in-depth article from ESPN on the overall South Florida-Dr. Feelgood-PED underground
