ESPN’s Outside the Lines reports the latest in the Biogenesis saga:
Anthony Bosch, the self-described biochemist who operated a series of wellness clinics, used prescription forms that contained forged signatures, stamped with the names and license numbers of legitimate physicians who apparently were unaware of the scheme, sources and documents indicate. Those drugs were prescribed to Bosch’s friends and associates and then delivered to professional athletes in order to avoid a paper trail, sources said.
Not surprising at all given what we know of Anthony Bosch. But with felony charges now potentially hovering over him, perhaps he’s more likely to throw people — and maybe players — under the bus. Or, alternatively, government officials may approach players to get the goods on Bosch.
