Rodriguez’ ‘most important’ goal: hitting 800 home runs


In Sunday night’s 60 Minutes feature on Yankees’ infielder Alex Rodriguez, a number of revelations were brought to light by Anthony Bosch,  the founder of the anti-aging Biogenesis clinic that is now famous for it’s link to performance-enhancing drugs.

Among the claims that Bosch makes on the special, he states that Rodriguez “would study the substances. He would study the dosages, because he wanted to achieve all his human performance or in this case, sports performance, objectives. And the most important one was the 800 home run club.” (ESPN)

The entire interview continues to implicate Rodriguez in a number of ways, which probably isn’t a surprise to anyone at this point. Rodriguez continues to deny that he’s used performance enhancing drugs while with the Yankees, but all evidence is appearing to point to the contrary.

Bosch lists various text messages he received from Rodriguez about PEDs in 2012, in addition to discussing Rodriguez often asking Bosch to help inject him.

The interview is extremely detailed, intriguing, and no doubt disappointing for Major League Baseball. The reaction from the league and it’s teams and players in the coming days will be a sight to behold.
