You know I've seen a lot of people walkin' 'round
With tombstones in their eyes
But the pusher don't care
Ah if you live or if you die.

Nah he's got MLB security men protecting him. I don't know who seems sleazier, ARod or Bosch, those two deserve each other.

The best part of the 60 Minutes story was the statement that Bud Selig is stepping down as Commissioner of MLB

only reason I asked was because all of the players that were non-cuban got suspended. Both Gio and Danny Valencia, if you guessed right are cuban and got their cases dropped...  :?

or he could have simply not mentioned them at all and spared their reputations. But now I guess Gio and Danny get to eat lunch with the cool kids.

What im saying is when MLB found those guys name in his hand book I bet he made up some story to cover his fellow cubans. Remember how the story came out that it was Gio Gonzalez's father that contacted Tony and not Gio himself. I think Gio is as guilty as the rest of them but unlike the rest he was the right nationality.

My sources tell me that Tony Bosch is a member of SDE.    He was sent here as an agent of the Cuban government (via intermediaries - his parents - in Miami) to destroy the reputations of all non-Cuban players in Major League Baseball.    I've also been told that Che' is living on a Greek Island with JFK and Elvis though my sources will neither confirm nor deny that story.

saw this morning that the player's association is none too happy about last night's broadcast.

But the biggest question that came out of it - how did AROD pass 12 tests?  Doesn't this mean testing is a joke and despite years of effort, PEDs are probably as rampant as ever?

Of course. Ortiz and others have been juicing for years and don't get caught.

I'm glad too, just because I love anything that causes the Yankees heartache :)  but yea I'm not so quick to discount Bosch as some lying weasel, as HTT pointed out the journals and the other players' acceptance of their punishment based on the journals leads me to believe this guy is just telling us what went down in his "clinic".  I am still somewhat amazed that Gio skated by , I guess it truly was his dad and not him getting benefits from the good doc?   :shrug:
Maybe Gio is actually clean, i dont know. Or, Maybe Gio was smart enough to have his dad pick up his stuff and provided Bosch with plausible deniability. "I met with Gios dad. Gio was never in my office. I never met with Gio, etc."

Regarding Arod, is it possible be both guilty AND the victim of a witch hunt?

Designated fall guy- a rod is evil, we've ridden the game of a scourge (please ignore how this shows our testing is terribly flawed or how were helping the most important franchise out of luxury tax hell)
