What We Learned On 60 Minutes About Alex Rodriguez


The Alex Rodriguez story is just beginning to boil over and we have perspective from some of the key parts of it from tonight’s 60 minutes. Here’s what we found out:

Alex is scared of needles and Anthony Boesch injected him himself.

A-rod took testosterone, insoulin growth factor one, HGH and peptites which are all banned.

Alex was being supplied by Boesch since 2010 and met Alex for the first time in 2010.

Boesch supplied Manny Ramirez in 2008 and 2009 and Alex wanted what Manny got.

Rodriguez wanted to be the lone guy in the 800 home run club which is why he wanted the drugs.

Boesch drew blood from Alex in a night club because he had to have his blood drawn on a specific schedule and got paid $12k a month in cash by Rodriguez

Rodriguez would take testosterone gummies right before games.

Boesch gave tips on how to beat steroid tests.

Boesch was given an affidavit to sign and plane ticket out of town to Colombia to “go away” from A-Rod’s people.

Boesch’s ex-girlfriend got a text saying Boesch wouldn’t last the year.

Joe Tacopina, Alex’s attorney denied all of it.

Rob Manfred, COO of MLB, paid $125k to a guy named “Bobby” for the Biogenesis documents

Boesch’s lawyer and Boesch met with MLB and said he needed protection due to threats on his life by a known associate of A-Rod’s.

They made a deal and Boesch told everything in exchange for protection, the drop of the lawsuit, and legal fees paid for my MLB.

 

Whether or not you believe Boesch has a lot to do with this. If you take Boesch at his word then Rodriguez may be in a whole world of trouble.

I fully believe Boesch knows how to beat a steroid test. I fully believe Boesch was scared for his life. The blackberry messages would be pretty hard to fake.

What do you guys think? Leave a comment and let your voice be heard.

    One thing we definitely learned is that MLB desperately wanted Rodriguez, that integrity no longer meant anything to them. Only thing meant anything was getting Alex. This was clearly a personal vendetta against him and only him, by the commissioner of MLB. Whether Alex was guilty or not, if government went out and did this against one of its own citizens, we ALL would be up in arms. You don’t have to like Alex to know this was WRONG. We don’t catch criminals by becoming criminals or we aren’t any better than them, just as guilty.

      Why didn’t they allow this case to stand on judges decision, why did they leak it, then allow this guy to go on tv and void the confidentiality of the case it looks real bad on baseball and my team the Yankees

    I agree it seems like a witch hunt…but, then again, were there not 12 others players suspended? And why did they not try to fight their suspensions? Seems odd to me that they would not even try to fight unless they all knew they were guilty beyond a reason of a doubt…this was not just about ARod…

    • Tony Curry

      Why did they make so those 12 other players wouldn’t fight it by just giving them 50 games only. Why didn’t they offer them half of what they have Alex. Alex would’ve taken the fifty maybe. If it looks like a vendetta, if it smells like a vendetta and it walks like a vendetta it’s a vendetta
