Alex Rodriguez

I've been trying to find the best example of the tragic hero to describe the career of Alex Rodriguez. I think about Jay Gatsby, a man born with glaring good looks but so insecure in his character that he creates these fantastical stories and throws the most outlandish parties to impress one woman.

On some level, Alex Rodriguez reminds me of Anakin Skywalker from episodes II and III (which were actually the fifth and sixth Star Wars movies). Remember how Skywalker was dubbed The Chosen One but then throws it all away and eventually gives in to the dark side?

Anthony Bosch, former owner of the anti-aging clinic Biogenesis in Coral Gables, in August pleaded not guilty to charges of selling illegal steroids to baseball players.

In October, Bosch will plead guilty to those same charges. He signed a plea agreement Wednesday admitting to criminal activity at Biogenesis. 

Bosch and six others were arrested last month on charges of conspiring to sell illegal steroids to professional and high school baseball players.

On The Florida Roundup: From the ball fields of South Dade to Yankee Stadium, Alex Rodriguez fights to stay in baseball.  Major League Baseball suspended him for more than a season for using performance-enhancing drugs.

We speak to Julie Brown of the Miami Herald about the Coral Gables anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis, that is at the center of the MLB scandal.  Also joining us will be Tim Elfrink of the Miami New Times, who broke the story about the clinic, which supplied drugs to not just MLB players but also college and high school athletes as well.
