Praise for Blood Sport
“A rollicking new book that reads like tragicomic noir fiction.” - Huffington Post Live
“Blood Sport” is riveting…The story of Rodriguez’s alliance with Bosch — and their eventual falling-out, with disastrous consequences for both — is a tragicomedy filled with characters straight out of a Carl Hiaasen novel: fake doctors, ex-cons, small-time grifters and a shady tanning-bed repairman whose theft of some Biogenesis documents set in motion much of the legal drama that ensued.”—The Washington Post
“Tim Elfrink’s stories have brought down Alex Rodriguez, shut down the clinic that provided A-Rod performance-enhancing drugs, led to the record-breaking suspension of more than a dozen major leaguers and helped to usher in a new, seemingly cleaner era for baseball.”—The Omaha World-Herald
““Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis, and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era” is full of juicy bits.” –CBS New York
“Once again, baseball proves to be more scandalous than a telenovela!”—Perez Hilton
“Earnest, well researched, well written…go for the book.”—The Epoch Times
