THIS IS THE SECOND TIME AROD HAS BEEN LINKED TO PED'S
DESPITE RYAN BRAUN'S CONSTANT DENIALS HE CONTINUES TO AROUSE SUSPICION
(AP) — Major League Baseball is interviewing players linked to a Miami anti-aging clinic that allegedly sold performance-enhancing drugs and has become the focus of the sport's investigation.
According to numerous reports, clinic founder Anthony Bosch has agreed to talk with MLB investigators. Players union head Michael Weiner says the commissioner's office has assured the union that "no decisions regarding discipline have been made or will be made until those interviews are completed."
"It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations," Weiner said in a statement.
Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon (bar-TOH'-loh koh-LOHN') are among more than a dozen players whose names have been tied to the now-closed clinic.
The A's let a 3-0 8th inning lead slip away in Milwaukee last night as the usally reliable Athletics bullpen struggled. Yuniesky Betancourt's RBI double on the 10th inning was the game-winner as the Brewers beat Oakland 4-3. Oakland's Bartolo Colon (bar-TOH'-loh koh-LOHN') goes for his seventh victory when the A's visit Milwaukee to play the last-place Brewers in a day game at Miller Park.
Tim Lincecum was the Lincecum of old and Andres Torres second inning home run held up as the Giants beat the Blue Jays 2-1 at AT & T Park on Tuesday night. Toronto sends out 4-7 R.A. Dickey against San Francisco in a day game at AT&T Park. Barry Zito (ZEE'-toh) gets the nod for the Giants, who start the day two back of Arizona in the NL West.
