Do you work for BioGenesis or MLB? If not, then what makes you think we've seen ALL the documents? You really think what the newspaper published is everything that BioGenesis had? If MLB gets nothing out of this lawsuit its a lot more likely that its due to employees/ownership destroying evidence. Not because "we have seen the documents and they were chicken scratch".
Fact is that MLB is actively seeking to suspend players. If nobody related to BioGenesis is suspended after this investigation I will be shocked.

It is? The entire thread I've been saying nobody will be suspended this year. Even if they attempt to suspend someone it will not go through this year, I think I've said that pretty consistently. It will be a drawn out legal battle that is going to last the entire season.
I dont think this is going to happen. I think when MLB realizes this is going to be the case they just back off.

Investigators for Major League Baseball have uncovered what they believe is evidence that a representative of Alex Rodriguez purchased medical records from a person connected to a South Florida anti-aging clinic that is suspected of providing performance-enhancing drugs to a number of major leaguers, according to two people briefed on the matter. The New York Times reported online Thursday that Major League Baseball had purchased documents from a former employee at the clinic, which operated under the name Biogenesis of America and is now closed, in an effort to uncover evidence that would link the clinic to the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. The article also stated that one major league player had also purchased clinic documents from a former clinic employee so that they could be destroyed. That player was not identified until Friday, when the two people said it was Rodriguez, the 37-year-old Yankees third baseman currently rehabilitating from off-season hip surgery. A spokesman for Rodriguez flatly denied the allegation Friday.
