You know what they say about snitches…

According to documents that were obtained by ESPN, famed New York Yankees third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, told federal agents back in 2014 that he was informed by Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch that Manny Ramirez, Ryan Braun, and another MLB All-Star had been taking performance-enhancing drugs from Bosch.

The All-Star was not named because he never tested positive for any banned substances, and never had to serve a suspension. I’m sure singing like a canary also helped keep his name out of the report as well…

It all went down when he met with two assistant U.S. Department of Justice attorneys and seven Drug Enforcement Administration agents on January 29th, 2014. The meeting happened weeks after Rodriguez received a 211-game suspension for violating the MLB’s PED policy, which banned him for the entire 2014 season.

He had been granted immunity status by prosecutors, where he could share information during an interview while avoiding prosecution.

Manny Ramirez ended up serving a 50-game suspension in 2009 while with the Dodgers for using PEDs, and was given a 100-game suspension in 2011 with the Rays, but decided to retire instead, while Braun received his suspension in 2013.

Rodriguez confessed in the meeting that he purchased PEDs from Bosch, even though he had publicly denied using them.

He paid around $12,000 a month to Bosch for testosterone supplements and also admitted that his cousin, Yusi Sucart Sr., had supplied him with PEDs for at least a decade, claiming that he once attempted to try and blackmail him with a $5 million threat.

He also lied to the Yankees president Randy Levine in 2012 by saying he didn’t have a relationship with Bosch.

A source from the Yankees told the outlet:

“He basically did everything he could to distract from his own behavior. I mean, Alex is a complicated person.

He had a lot of layers to him, and I think he’s remorseful, but he did some bad things to a lot of people.”

It’s no secret that A-Rod has typically been disliked around baseball, and around his teammates for the most part, and this is just icing on the cake.

You remember that scene from The Departed where Jack Nicholson’s character confronts Leo’s character about the cheese eatin’ rat in his outfit?

Well, it looks like the power hitters of the ’90s and early 2000s found their rat…
