U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart said New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez’s PED regimen was “probably the most potent and sophisticated drug program developed for an athlete that we’ve ever seen.”
“At the end of the day,” Tygart told the Associated Press, “this was a potent cocktail of sophisticated PEDs stacked together to deliver power, aid recovery, avoid detection and create a home run champion.”
According to the Associated Press, A-Rod’s concoctions included things called “gummies” and “liquid soap,” ”pink cream,” ”blue cream” and even “PM cream.” They each reportedly had “varying doses of testosterone delivered in different ways throughout the day.”
“No one who cares about clean sports likes to hear it,” Tygart, who relentlessly pursued Lance Armstrong and was vindicated when Armstrong admitted that he doped to win all of his Tour de France titles, said. “And don’t just take my word for it. Look at the findings of an independent arbitrator who saw all the evidence, sat through the testimony and laid the whole conspiracy out.”
An MLB arbitrator suspended A-Rod for the 2014 season. Rodriguez sued MLB and the players’ union to get the suspended overturned.
