REPORT: A-Rod Met With BALCO's Conte In '12
Alex Rodriguez met with Victor Conte (the former head of the notorious BALCO clinic) in May of 2012. Conte has shared details of the meeting with MLB investigators, and claims the discussion only centered on advice about legal supplements. A-Rod came to the meeting with former NFL player Bill Romanowski. Reportedly, Conte also spoke with Biogenesis clinic head Anthony Bosch about A-Rod—who the Yankee third baseman referred to as "his nutrition guy". No matter what the meeting was about, the fact that A-Rod sought out the confab with a centerpiece of the PED controversy cannot help his case going forward.
