    Cesar Carillo as well. And their hitting coach, IIRC.

    Not saying that I suspect he uses at all. But with Biogenesis being right in the middle of Coral Gabels, right across the street from the University of Miami baseball facility (Home of Alex Rodriguez Park) as well as Alonso being close with Grandal, it wouldn't surprise me if he, or any other pro ballplayer who still has ties to the U, was on that list. This place wasn't some secret among athletes at the U, and there's been talk of Miami football players being regular customers. It wouldn't surprise me if any pro ballplayer from the U was on the list. I only mentioned Alonso specifically because this thread is about Reds players that might be linked.

    I live in Miami now, so I am pretty sure I am also a suspect.

    Heck, I pass the baseball stadium almost every day on the way to work at UM. Guilty!

    Honestly, no offense, but if you also were a professional baseball player, I would be suspicious of you using PED's. It would be logical to be at least suspicious.

    I also would have been suspicious of any pro baseball player who had connections, no matter how innocent, to the area around Balco, back in the 1990's/early 2000's.

    No worries. You are hardly the source of "guilty until proven innocent" in American culture. It's why we don't convict people In the court of public opinion... at least we try not to.

    Yonder also worked out with and claimed Arod as a friend and mentor getting him to where he is now. Doesn't mean he did anything by any means, but it does raise a red flag.

    I had four UM baseball players in my class last year. They looked big. Red flag!

    I believe the Reds had officially used their scandal allotment during the whole Pete Rose thing.
