On the heels of a report that Major League Baseball is going to interview Alex Rodriguez on Friday about his alleged links to Biogenesis comes a bombshell.
And it gets bigger. From ESPN.com:
Commissioner Bud Selig's office is expected to suspend Braun and Rodriguez, along with as many as 20 players sometime after next week's All-Star break, several sources told Outside the Lines.
The report also says the commissioner's office is shooting for more than simply the "first offense" punishment of a 50-game suspension because it's possible multiple offenses have been committed by several of the players involved.
This kind of sweeping suspension spree would be unprecedented when it comes to any major professional sport and punishments for performance-enhancing drugs. MLB already has the most strict testing program, but this is far above any investigation that has been conducted thus far.
Bosch and his attorneys have been cooperating with MLB after initially giving some pushback. But now many documents have reportedly come into the hands of MLB officials from Bosch and his clinic.
The report indicates MLB is building a case it believes is legitimate enough to suspend nearly two dozen players within the next few weeks.
