After getting what it wanted—the Biogenesis founder's testimony and evidence against Alex Rodriguez—MLB has dropped its lawsuit against Tony Bosch. Everyone try to act surprised.
Bosch was MLB's primary witness against Rodriguez in the arbitration hearing that handed him a 162-game suspension. There was no physical evidence tying A-Rod to illegal drug use—only Bosch's word, and his personal notebooks. It is not an exaggeration to say Rodriguez could not have been convicted without Bosch's cooperation. And that cooperation was coerced.
