ESPN: The Biogenesis Files

The largest performance-enhancing drugs operation in U.S. sports history was exposed 10 years ago. Biogenesis of America, a Miami wellness clinic fueled by a cocaine-addicted biochemist who introduced himself as “Dr. T,” outed some of the nation’s biggest stars as PED users; still others have not been publicly tied into the scandal—until now.

Drawing upon more than 1,400 pages of confidential U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigative documents obtained exclusively by ESPN and dozens of interviews, this package of stories provides an unforgettable look at Tony Bosch’s operation, the attorneys and league officials caught using unsavory tactics, and the depths to which athletes will go for an advantage—and to protect their images

Alex Rodriguez is reportedly shopping a documentary on his life

There might soon be another documentary about a prominent recent player for the New York Yankees. Following ESPN’s six-part docuseries The Captain on Derek Jeter, Andrew Marchand of The New York Post reports that Alex Rodriguez is trying to gauge interest in a documentary on his life:

Here’s more on that from Marchand’s piece, which mentions that Rodriguez (who currently co-hosts the KayRod Cast alternate broadcast with Michael Kay for selected ESPN Sunday Night Baseball games, is a MLB on Fox postseason analyst, and is a part-owner of the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves) is working with Religion of Sports‘ Gotham Chopra on this project:

If done right and straightforward, it could be tremendous. Since his comeback, Rodriguez’s go-to move is self-deprecation, but that won’t work in a doc. Like a lot of things in his life, you wonder: Why would A-Rod do that? This is not different. Rodriguez’s past is not forgotten, but it is not at the forefront of people’s minds, and with TV gigs at ESPN and Fox, among others, plus being a part owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves, he appears to be doing quite well. Is it really smart to dredge up the past? But if he doesn’t, it won’t be much of a life story.
