NEW YORK – Another day, another layer to the Alex Rodriguez three-ring circus.
This time around, he’s been connected with Victor Conte, the BALCO founder who once served prison time for his involvement in a massive multi-sport steroid scandal. Conte told the New York Daily News that A-Rod reached out to him last season through former NFL player Bill Romanowski to discuss options to enhance his performance.
Romanowski had tried to convince Conte to fly to New York or Los Angeles to meet with Rodriguez, but Conte said he declined the offer.
“I flushed it out with Romo before they ever showed up at the office,” Conte said. “I clearly told Romo it (anything he could do for Rodriguez) was about legal performance enhancement.”
