Steroid dealer Kirk Radomski says agents introduced him to their clients

That story in which Melky Cabrera‘s agents — the Levinsons — are alleged to have facilitated clients’ acquisition of PEDs by setting up checking accounts and things? It’s being corroborated, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.  The problem?  The chief corroborator is Kirk Radomski:

“I will corroborate the relationship I had with Paul and the Levinsons,” Radomski, the former New York Mets clubhouse attendant, said in a telephone interview. “I met players through their agents. I met players through other players.”

Obviously Radomski would be in a position to know — he’s the PED dealer at the center of the allegations, so what he says is relevant. But he also has extreme credibility problems. His testimony at the Roger Clemens trial was pretty destructive to the government’s case. Mostly because it differed from his testimony before the grand jury. Which differed from the accounts in the book he wrote (and for which he received a $450,000 advance).

While MLB took Radomski’s word as gospel for the Mitchell Report, one would hope that if baseball is going to make a case against the Levinsons for being in the PED business, it’s going to rely on someone besides Radomski to do so.

    It won’t be long until we are an article in which an agent instructed a player to juice up so that they could both profit.

    I get the impression that Radomski would be willing to say that it was MLB players and agents who kidnapped the Lindburgh baby.

    It’s the perfect liar storm. You can’t believe Radomski. You can’t believe the agents. They are all lyiing liar heads.

    Can’t we inject all of them with “truth serum” and find out the real deal ??? Where’s the KGB when you really need them ?
