REPORT: A-Rod Paid Lawyer For Clinic's Bosch

ESPN's 'Outside The Lines' made yet another damaging allegation against Alex Rodriguez on Monday. A story by T.J. Quinn and Pedro Gomez asserts that A-Rod paid for an attorney for Biogenesis Clinic head Anthony Bosch. In fact, two wire transfers were made this year from Rodriguez to the lawyer— Susy Ribero-Ayala—totalling as much as $75,000. The first transfer of $25,000 was accepted. The second—allegedly unsolicited—for $50,000 was returned.  ESPN speculates that this information may comprise a big part of MLB's contention that Rodriguez obstructed the Biogenesis investigation.
