I wrote in early November about the concern in MLB regarding an alleged cell of PED use in Miami that may have become something like BALCO East, and there was more from ESPN.com and the Daily News over the weekend about the links.

This morning, Tim Elfrink of the Miami New Times has more details.

It's a developing story, with many players allegedly involved, and MLB is trying to get traction in its own investigation. Among the others, MLB will examine the links to Alex Rodriguez. If what is alleged in the New Times report is accurate -- that Rodriguez was using PEDs as recently as last season -- it may be that Rodriguez's prolific career could be all but over.
