Yankees star Alex Rodriguez admitted to Drug Enforcement Administration officials in January that he had been taking steroids provided by a fake doctor while publicly denying it, the Miami Herald reported on Wednesday. The newspaper reviewed a 15-page report on Rodriguez’s meeting with the feds, which took place on Jan. 29.
In his conversation with the DEA, the third baseman said he paid about $12,000 a month to Anthony Bosch, a fake doctor who owned a Coral Gables, Fla., clinic called Biogenesis of America. Rodriguez’s cousin, Yuri Sucart, delivered the steroids and was paid $1 million to keep it a secret, the paper reported.
Television personalties offered their two cents about the news via social media.
ESPN Analyst Dick Vitale predicted wild times ahead at Yankee Stadium.

Jim Rome of CBS Sports Radio’s The Jim Rome Show didn’t hold back.
Alex Rodriguez reportedly paid his cousin Yuri Sucart $1 million in hush money?! Who’s the bigger bag, A-Rod, or Y-Suc? Tie for last.
