A-Rod & MLB Stars

Investigators to View

Alleged 'Roids Smoking Gun

7/1/2013 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701_arod_ryan_braun_mlb_article_tmzAlex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun's ears should be burning -- baseball investigators are about to sit down with the whistleblower who claims he can prove they purchased performance enhancing drugs from a Miami clinic ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with direct knowledge of Major League Baseball's investigation tell us MLB officials will be meeting with Porter Fischer in Florida this week ... and he's expected to reveal his detailed records from the Biogenesis clinic.

Fischer is an ex-employee at Biogenesis and claims to have the goods on more than 100 baseball players -- among them Braun and A-Rod -- who allegedly obtained banned PEDs from the clinic's owner Tony Bosch.

The Yankees just cleared Rodriguez for his first on-field action this season -- a minor league game -- as he continues to rehab from hip surgery.

We're told the MLB meeting was brokered by Fischer's attorney, Ray Rafool -- and that MLB will pay Fischer a "consultant" fee in exchange for his cooperation.

Bottom line -- if Fischer has the mother lode he claims ... MLB could soon be handing down major suspensions.

A-Roid is done anyway. The Yankees would trade him in a second, if they could find a team dumb enough to take him.

Alex is getting paid $25 millions a year for another 5 years. If suspended for 100 games it means he won't play this season since the season is already half gone. Does he get paid for the suspended games or does MLB force him to forfeit 100 games worth in salaries. 25 M for doing nothing WOW!

If I were Porter, I'd be sleeping with one eye open. He's "ratting" on folks with tremendous purchasing power.

If these PEDs were purchased from a licensed doctor in a medical setting, this guy is basically walking right into a HIPAA violation on a grand scale. Good luck with that buddy. Patient records are confidential so you'll be needing every cent of that consulting fee to cover your legal expenses when the FEDs charge you and not the players.

lets face it, in any sport- professional or amateur- if the competition is fierce enough, the competitors will use drugs to win bigger contracts/endorsement deals.
while i have no proof another famous athlete like usain bolt is using anything, i must admit he is another guy i am VERY suspicious of. the way he didn't just beak previous world records but in some cases- totally blew them away..... i can totally see him in that club. when some guys are performing to a level that seems more superhuman than human- there is probably a reason for it that goes deeper than just hard work.

Ha Ha! It ain't A-Rod's first probs with roids which means he'll get WAY more than a 50 game suspension when he's barely been cleared to play again? Or unless it won't count like the rumors say and won't be disciplined...oh wait, it'll be fine either way...he sucks!
