Four years after Alex Rodriguez admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs in 2001-2003, the Yankees slugger is now being linked to a human growth hormone distribution ring based in Miami. According to the Miami New Times, Rodriguez's name, as well as many other famous ones, is the list of clients at Biogenesis, a clinic run by a man under investigation by the DEA and Florida authorities.

The New Times reports, "Open the neat spreadsheet and scroll past the listing of local developers, prominent attorneys, and personal trainers. You'll find a lengthy list of nicknames: Mostro, Al Capone, El Cacique, Samurai, Yukon, Mohamad, Felix Cat, and D.R. Then check out the main column, where their real names flash like an all-star roster of professional athletes with Miami ties: San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland A's hurler Bartolo Colón, pro tennis player Wayne Odesnik, budding Cuban superstar boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz. There's even the New York Yankees' $275 million man himself, Alex Rodriguez, who has sworn he stopped juicing a decade ago."

Anthony Bosch, who ran Biogenesis, apparently kept a notebook and Rodriguez's name is repeatedly in it: "Alex Rodriguez appears 16 times in the documents we reviewed. His name is recorded as "Alex Rod" or "Alex R." or by his nickname at the clinic, "Cacique." This is particularly interesting because on ESPN, he acknowledged using PEDs but said he stopped in 2003. It's also important to note that Rodriguez's cousin, Miami resident Yuri Sucart, frequently appears in the same records on the same days as Rodriguez. Sucart has been identified in the past as Rodriguez's source for performance-enhancing drugs."

Rodriguez's "account" with Bosch was paid through April 2012, according to the report. A spokesman for Rodriguez told the Post's Joel Sherman, "Alex Rodriguez denis taking PEDs during the time frame described in the story... The news report about a purported relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch are not true. Alex Rodriguez was not Mr. Bosch’s patient, he was never treated by him and he was never advised by him. The purported documents referenced in the story -- at least as they relate to Alex Rodriguez -- are not legitimate."

The MLB said, "We are always extremely disappointed to learn of potential links between players and the use of performance-enhancing substances. These developments, however, provide evidence of the comprehensive nature of our anti-drug efforts. Through our Department of Investigations, we have been actively involved in the issues in South Florida. It is also important to note that three of the players (Cabrera, Colon, catcher Yasmani Grandal) allegedly involved have already been disciplined under the Joint Drug Program."
