Will Carroll: Glossary of Drugs in Miami Biogenesis Clinic Records Tied to A-Rod, Others

The controversy surrounding the apparent client list of a Miami clinic that includes Alex Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, and others continues to be a major story after more than a week after the Miami New Times released it. While the specifics are still under investigation and names leak out from various outlets, the heart of the matter is still poorly understood. What are these drugs that are listed near the names (or code names) of professional athletes?

This article will provide some answers. (Many of which I also provided in a Thursday appearance on MLB Network’s Hot Stove). Please note that I am going to try and keep this as simple and non-technical as I possibly can.

Will Carroll, the same guy to tell us Ryan Howard would be back from an ACL injury May 1st, is still spewing his BS persona. Sounds like its the bottom of the 9th for him

i'm not much of a fan of carroll, but ryan howard wasn't held back because his achilles didn't heal; he was held back because his ankle was infected after surgery, and by the time it got cleared up, he missed half the season.
