Records From Miami ‘Aging’ Clinic Implicate Major Sports Stars in PED Scandal

Blockbuster report from Tim Elfrink of The Miami New Times:

The names are all included in an extraordinary batch of records from Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic tucked into a two-story office building just a hard line drive’s distance from the UM campus. They were given to New Times by an employee who worked at Biogenesis before it closed last month and its owner abruptly disappeared. The records are clear in describing the firm’s real business: selling performance-enhancing drugs, from human growth hormone (HGH) to testosterone to anabolic steroids.

Interviews with six customers and two former employees corroborate the tale told by the patient files, the payment records, and the handwritten notebooks kept by the clinic’s chief, 49-year-old Anthony Bosch.

Among the implicated: the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez.

Update: A-Rod denies the whole thing.
