No, wait! Maybe A-Rod is worse than Ryan Braun! According to an attorney for Tony Bosch, Alex Rodriguez paid her $25,000 to represent the embattled Biogenesis founder.
That's the report from Outside The Lines, which has a statement from Bosch's attorney, Susy Ribero-Ayala, as well as documents showing a second, canceled wire transfer for nearly $50,000 that Rodriguez's then-lawyer characterized as a "mistake."
According to Ribero-Ayala, Rodriguez paid her a retainer represent Bosch in February, just as the Biogenesis scandal was gearing up. At the time, Bosch hadn't yet agreed to cooperate with Major League Baseball's investigation, so the implication is that Rodriguez was currying favor with Bosch to avoid the release of damning evidence. (Around the same time, it was reported last week, Rodriguez's camp was leaking documents containing Ryan Braun's name to deflect attention away from himself.)
