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.
