NFT: Agency with multiple Mets clients tied to PED's in new suit

DanMetroMan : 2/13/2018 11:08 am
The lawsuit, which claims ACES has been providing MLB players with PEDs for decades, purports to have a signed affidavit from Kirk Radomski, who pleaded guilty to two such charges and was a major player in MLB’s Mitchell Report on PED usage a decade ago, and also goes into minute detail about the Levinsons’ alleged involvement with convicted drug dealer Anthony Bosch of Biogenesis, and how Sam Levinson introduced Cabrera, Nelson Cruz and other MLB players to Bosch and was aware that Bosch’s regimen for the players contained HGH, testosterone and performance-enhancing “gummies.”

The lawsuit, which also claims the Levinsons make “under-the-table” payments to clients, says the Levinsons’ mantra was to do “whatever it took,” even if it meant doing things in violation of the laws of the United States and the rules of MLB and the players union and that Nunez was “thrown under the bus to protect their own reputations” and made to take the fall for the harebrained schemes to try to fool MLB regarding Cabrera’s failed test. Those schemes, memorably, included, devising a phony website, which Nunez said was the idea of Seth Levinson, designed to fake out MLB into thinking Cabrera mistakenly took a PED after reading about it online rather than obtaining it from convicted drug dealer Anthony Bosch via Sam Levinson’s introduction.

A whole bunch of PEDs

And the Mets still sucked? Not very encouraging.

I just saw David Wright mentioned in the article, I skimmed it, did I miss something? Is there somewhere else that names the Mets players associated with this firm?
ACES also represents Lagares,

It's not helping Plawecki. Wait, perhaps that's why he was getting more balls out of the infield late in the season?
I know it might not be a part of the Article

but, any word on Mejia? I admit I might have just missed it somewhere.

I know he signed a contract and applied for reinstatement. Thought we might have heard about how that process played out or a timeline now that pitchers and catchers reported.

Oops, you're right, I mis-read an article about the contract signing as then he had, as opposed to he planned on applying.

Last update I can find was 1/19, I mean I guess it's possible he has and it wasn't reported but I doubt it.
