Moments ago we linked a New York Daily News story quoting a source as saying Tony Bosch of the Miami Biogenesis clinic was not used as an official expert or consultant in Ryan Braun's 2012 appeal of his 50 game suspension.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today has a quote that helps explain that a bit. David Cornwall, Braun's lead attorney in the appeal, said he typically uses Nashville-based Aegis Sciences Corporation in drug appeals. Here's what he said about Bosch in a statement:
"Bosch was introduced to me at the earliest stage of Ryan's case," Cornwall said. "I found Bosch's value to be negligible and, thereafter, I followed my prior practice of relying on Aegis in the preparation of Ryan's winning defense."
If that's true and the report that Bosch tried to bill Braun $20-30,000 for his "advice" is also true, then it seems pretty understandable that Braun and his legal team would debate the merits of that bill and end up on a list of people Bosch felt owed him money.
