Miami New Times Refuses to Share Documents Related to MLB Drug Scandal

If the MLB intends to take action against 25 players involved with a Miami lab that is being accused of dealing in performance-enhancing drugs, it may have to proceed without some critical documents.

On Tuesday, the Miami New Times announced that it will not release documents to MLB that may indicate a relationship between major league players and Biogenesis which has subsequently closed.

As for the reasons for not releasing said documents, New Times editor Chuck Strouse mentions commissioner Bud Selig's relationship with Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, who has angered those in South Florida as a result of his publicly-funded stadium idea and follows up by selling the Marlins' best players.

Strouse says Selig should use his position as commissioner "to prevent owners like Loria from using a big-league team as a front for squeezing money from taxpayers."

The documents that the New Times has possession of include logs and records that connect players including Alex Rodriguez, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon to the clinic. The logs indicate the clinic provided players with human growth hormone and testosterone.

Without a positive drug test, moving forward with the case will prove difficult and the lack of the evidence from the New Times will not make it any easier.
