Just read Olney's Insider blog (subscription required). Basically says the Yankees will most likely go after A-Rod the way that Lance Armstrong's sponsors have gone after him. Speculates that this may be it for him in NYY... it's a good (but sad) read.
There's nothing in his contract that stipulates PED use, but MLB could rule for "misrepresentation" and basically force him out.
He could do a lot of collateral damage.
"Beats me. This guy behind me with the phone said he's a season ticket holder. You're going to have to ask him....."
http://riveraveblues.com/2013/01/a-r...-report-81792/There, at number seven on the list, is Alex Rodriguez. He paid $3,500, Bosch notes. Below that, he writes, “1.5/1.5 HGH (sports perf.) creams test., glut., MIC, supplement, sports perf. Diet.” HGH, of course, is banned in baseball, as are testosterone creams.
That’s not the only damning evidence against A-Rod, though. Another document from the files, a loose sheet with a header from the 19th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine, lays out a full regimen under the name Cacique: “Test. cream… troches prior to workout… and GHRP… IGF-1… pink cream.”
There’s more evidence. On a 2009 client list, near A-Rod’s name, is that of Yuri Sucart, who paid Bosch $500 for a weeklong supply of HGH. Sucart is famous to anyone who has followed baseball’s steroid scandal. Soon after A-Rod’s admission, the slugger admitted that Sucart — his cousin and close friend — was the mule who provided the superstar his drugs. In 2009, the same year this notebook was written, Sucart (who lives in South Miami and didn’t respond to a message left at his home) was banned from all Yankees facilities.
The mentions of Rodriguez begin in 2009 and continue all the way through last season. Take a page in another notebook, which is labeled “2012″ and looks to have been written last spring. Under the heading “A-Rod/Cacique,” Bosch writes, “He is paid through April 30th. He will owe May 1 $4,000… I need to see him between April 13-19, deliver troches, pink cream, and… May meds. Has three weeks of Sub-Q (as of April).”
From what I hear, Melky, Arod and colon were inseparable with BOB. Yankee brass knew this about Melky in 2009-10 and unloaded him. They also knew this was going to come out last year after colon and Melky got nabbed. Hence, the benching of Arod, hoping to force him out of nyy.
This is no surprise to insiders.
Recall the rumors that Bob was going to be nabbed with Melky and colon?
Just a matter of time.....

Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.
Stanton could also be on the list.

Hmm.. Does Melky get suspended 100 games now?..ouch..
!Tank the season for Cardale Jones!
A-Rod needs a refund if he's been using these past couple years.
Also, you would think 30M/year in salary would buy you a better drug dealer than someone who writes your actual name in his little book next to your long list of drug purchases. I mean come on.
You would think A-Rod would be better at this whole drug buying deal by now.
