For many around baseball, sifting through the recent cloud of dust surrounding baseball has been difficult ever since the discoveries of the Biogensis anti-aging clinic came about. Much information has surfaced surrounding numerous stars and their steroid use. The center of attention has been place primarily on the shoulders of the New York Yankees and third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez was recently suspended though the 2014 season, but will appeal the suspension.
What has been forgotten in the hustle and bustle of the recent punishments has been the clearing of Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez’s name. Gonzalez was linked to the clinic because owner Anthony Bosch supposedly had targeted Florida area residents. Gonzalez was said to have received a combination of several amino acids and other supplements. From the gecko it was said that Gonzalez’s purchases were legal and that he did not do anything of note.
Still, however, in the world of steroids much is unclear and it is a good day for Nats fans as one of the game’s best, Gio Gonzalez, is clean. On a side note, Gonzalez pitched another gem tonight against the division rival Atlanta Braves, but once again the Nationals offense was unable to produce any run support for Gio falling 2-1.
