Sources: MLB Finds No Evidence A-Rod Paid For Documents Linking Him To PEDs
Published April 15, 2013
MIDDLE MEN: In N.Y., Thompson, Madden, O'Keeffe & Vinton cited sources as saying that an associate of Bosch "made the documents available" to MLB and players named in the documents. The sources said that the associate "used two South Florida businessmen to contact MLB officials and the players to see if they would be interested in bidding on the documents." One source described the transactions by Rodriguez, MLB and possibly other players as "a situation where these people are out there soliciting bids, treating this stuff like it's baseball memorabilia." Sources said that Rodriguez "allegedly took up the offer ... and sent his own intermediary to retrieve the documents." MLBers who "buy or attempt to buy incriminating documents could be suspended" for violating the league's drug program (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/13). In Milwaukee, Tom Haudricourt wrote, "One thing is clear: MLB is not going to give up on this investigation until every possible avenue has been explored" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL, 4/14).
