Biogenesis proprietor Tony Bosch didn't spend all his time cooking up elaborate doping procedures for MLB stars like Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. As reported in Blood Sport, the new book on the Miami scandal, Bosch also had a huge network of regular clientele, from UM students to high schoolers to ex-athletes. Among that latter group, Blood Sport recounts, was none other than UM legend Bernie Kosar.

Yesterday, Kosar talked about his ties to Bosch for the first time. The former NFL first-round draft pick says the unlicensed anti-aging doctor "had an amazing impact on my life."

After some early hope this season, the Marlins will play their 100th game tonight and are marred in mediocrity. It's actually an improvement over the past two seasons, but the team is still 6.5 games behind in the wildcard race.

Rather than trying to beef up by making trades, the team is rumored to be calling it a season by dealing closer Steve Cishek.

Well, the team's one true superstar, Giancarlo Stanton, is mad as hell at the Marlins for trading away every other decent player at any chance they get and he's not going to take it anymore.

Then the Miami Heat went and drafted him, causing some to think it was all part of a plan to keep James in South Beach.

Well, James went back to Cleveland anyway, and Napier has now apparently responded by unfollowing James on Twitter and deleting all the tweets he had made mentioning him. Seems pretty standard for a 23 year-old.
