Report: Mariners’ Jesus Montero on PED list
Another day, another name. The New York Daily News reports that Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero is listed in the records of Biogenesis, the alleged performance-enhancing drug clinic run by Tony Bosch.
The story comes on the heels of Tuesday's Yahoo! Sports report that named Ryan Braun as a client of Bosch and his Miami-area clinic. Also named in the Yahoo! Sports report: New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Baltimore Orioles third baseman Danny Valencia. Like Braun, Cervelli and Valencia have denied using PEDs.
In the case of Montero -- a former top prospect for the New York Yankees -- the Daily News didn't report a specific PED listed, which is similar to the Braun news. We haven't heard from Montero yet, but his response may very well be along the lines of Braun's: that he paid Bosch as a consultant.
It's worth noting, however, that Montero is a client of Seth and Sam Levinson. They rep Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez and Nelson Cruz, who were all named in the initial Miami New Times report about Biogenesis. All that circumstance, though, isn't going to get a guy a 50-game suspension.

I wonder if this is why they were so quick to trade Montero and why last year they sent Cervelli down to the minors instead of having him on the regular season roster. I'm just waiting for the announcement coming out that Cano gets busted. The guy was friends with Melky and is friends with Arod and the Yankees have been hesitant to sign him to a contract. Odds aren't good for him I'm thinking.

I still dont know why these guys would go to someone who issues PED's to athletes to use as a consultant? Thay have the money to hire any Doctor or lab worker they want yet they use a known person that sells PED's. How would that help their case in any way?
So, if I commit a murder I need to get a murderer as an attorney I guess.

As far as I'm concerned Maris still holds the record for most HR's in a season and Hammerin Hank is the true HR King.
