It might be a wrap for Dr. Tony Galea:
Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez said Monday that FBI agents want to talk to him in a widening probe of a flamboyant sports doctor linked to illegal drugs and blood doping.
“I’m aware of an investigation and I plan on cooperating,” A-Rod told reporters in Florida after a workout at spring training camp. A-Rod is among some of the world’s top athletes – from Met Jose Reyes to golfer Tiger Woods – expected to face questions, and possibly subpoenas, in the FBI’s probe of Canadian doctor Tony Galea. The expanding investigation sent shock waves through the wide world of sports, many of whose stars can be found on Galea’s high-performance client list.
Aside from A-Rod, Reyes and Woods, his patients include Olympic swimmer Dara Torres, former Met Carlos Delgado, gold medal sprinter Donovan Bailey, Broncos quarterback Chris Simms and dozens more top athletes in the U.S. and Canada. A-Rod, who a year ago admitted to using banned substances while a Texas Ranger from 2001 to 2003, said he’s not worried.
“This is about someone else,” he said. “I’m going to cooperate the best I can and focus on baseball.”
Damn, A-Rod said “F*ck that, I’m trying to keep my career crackin and millions of dollars steadily flowing in…”
