"Not only baseball movies but like some of the greatest movies ever made but but for love of the game was considered like so like down there on the list but you want it works. It works so good like you get the hills. You get those tears in your is every time he bitches that no hitter spoiler alert sorry guys but like it's it's amazing and that's the thing is it like you make a sports movie and it kind kind of works but screwball is not being weird way. It's almost an anti sports movie yeah that that is probably a good way to describe it but by the away from the love of the game engine here for too long but they screw it up by having vin scully have a <hes> an analyst in there and steve. Lyons and i'm sure steve had a great agent at the the vince gully was calling games by himself didn't need steve lyons in there anyhow just moving on now. Let's get let's get to screwball are back to screw again. You guys can watch it. It's on netflix. It came out yesterday on net flicks. Tony bosch the guy at the center of biogenesis. He seems like what's that your cousin right. You're my cousin. Yes i mean putting them anymore. Yeah he's like this cartoon character and yet he's is this real person like i'm sure there's so many stories that you can tell about just being around him and having these conversations with him but what is something that just you were even like holy crap. I got to put this in the movie because that's just insane allow well. He said someone described him to me. Once as the most miami any creature i have ever seen and i think that's a pretty accurate description opin but when he's talking about his v._i._p. Client in the steroid business. It's really the human growth hormone <hes> you know antipasto and business was manny ramirez shout out to the dodgers and it was just before actually his dodgers <hes> contract and so he started to work with many who was starting to get a little long in the tooth. You've starting to to not be able to perform at that peak level of performance that you know that that he was used to that you need you know t to get those free agent in a big big money contracts and so he would start to give him the concierge service which meant he was traveling with him all over the country he would stay either you know in in a neighboring bring hotel room or you'd actually stay in the same hotel room that manny <hes> was in and they'd always identify him as a publicist during nutritionist or whatever p._s. Title you know they would give a tony and he would have to <hes> if he slept in a room with manny in twin beds. Manny could would not fall asleep unless he had a bedtime story and to tony would find himself in bed. You know in the bed next to manny danny in a hotel room telling him a bedtime story and just talking to him until he gently fell asleep in december land and so i i thought that was a bunch. I'm like what a bunch of nonsense and then we actually started to research about. It and it's a pretty like kind of i don't wanna say well known fact but it was published and a ah story that like manny had trouble sleeping if he was alone and needed like sound or people to talk and tell him bedtime stories and tony was one of the guys who would travel with with him on the road when he in between doses of human growth hormone into saas would tell him bedtime stories this sweet i mean it's just like that's it's such a nice human touch to the story when you i when when you really bolsters our faith in humanity when you can you have all these characters and these people and these oddballs and this and then you know criminals and all all these amazing characters what is a teacher you take away from just about like people generally criminality and then just all the stuff that goes into it about who who we are and what motivates us well you realize we have a multibillion dollar this annual annually liam multibillion dollar criminal justice system when it tells you is crime is a business and it is a business both for.

"I believe in nutrition course, Thira I was well it was a working camp. You know, you had to work. I started out teaching the. GD courses like math science reading for those that were there that needed to passer g the and we've it within that time. I did teach a little nutrition here and there, and then he was also in prison with Jeff skilling from the Enron scandal. Who is teaching business, correct? At the prison end. Jesse Jackson junior who is teaching policy in prison for political. This wasn't as dangerous as I imagined in my head. This was a little it was an educational it was educational, but that. Listen, the whole experience was terrible. When I was sentenced I didn't surrender to the camp. They didn't let me just go to camp I was held immediately. And so I went through the whole process where I was you know, incarcerated immediately, and then really have time and say vita my family, although I I was already prepared for something like this. And it was a little surprising that you know, I was held immediately. And then I had to go through the whole transfer system. So it was about three or four months later that actually got to my camp once there, I you know, I settled in and accept my fate tone. You said something earlier about like, you would aknowledge that you you did something wrong or took shortcuts. What is it that you think you did wrong? Why do you think you went to prison, or why did you think you deserved or needed to go? I mean other than of course to detox, but like an kind of reboot your life. Why do you think you went to prison? Well, the obvious reasons call what it is when I was doing was completely legal whose criminal in many aspects just the way that that it was done the whole method. What about the kids your high? School clients and the children and the kids and the parents, well, that's what got you in the real trouble. If you would have gotten a slap on the wrist of it had only been athletes, but once you do it with kids. That's what I thought. That's what got you into the real trouble. I agree with you. I agree with you. And I you might have gotten a slap on the wrist. If it had just been Manny, and Alex and not I don't think it would have ended up forty eight months, even though there were questions about whether or not you were a doctor. I'm I'm going to agree with you. I'm going to agree. I think that the my moral compass should've said, listen, I don't care if you're the parent, I'm not gonna treat your seventeen year old. Oh, but the doctor was making everybody great you're making everyone feel good. You're the guy who's getting everybody a little bit healthier a little more money, and the parents want it to it's funny. Most of these guests in the parents wanted it is crazy most these parents that brought me their kids wasn't so much to put him on a protocol to put him on a program. Ram? No there really had been drafted. But they had been using some type of performance enhancing substance from before and say, hey, can you clean up my kid 'cause you know, he's getting ready for the June draft, you know, help him mass. And I'm helping mask the situation, and I would say about sixty sixty five percent of the of of those underage kids. It was like that that that that was the cause. And then you had the other ones that. Yeah. Listen, I want to grow. I wa I wanna into the June draft. But nobody's going drive to five five five six scrawny. Little kid. No matter how good you are in baseball. And that's the truth of the matter. It's all eighty percent of visual. But nonetheless, that's where I should've said, listen, this is where I draw the line. No kids. All you had no line though. Right. There wasn't because they all went up his nose. Yeah. Tell me about how the five million dollars get spent explained to me how it is that major league baseball ends up with a five million dollar twenty bucks or something like four point two four point three somewhere in between four and five billion dollars..

"Did you get where you were? Finally, like, okay, I'm past the darkness. Wow. The there was so many 'em phases throughout this whole thing. But where I felt the most relief was as crazy as it sounds. It was when I was sentenced to forty eight months. It was okay. It's over. That's it. This is my punishment. Did you think it was going to be worse than that? Or did you fear? It would be worse than that. After going through all the shit. And all the publicity that I'm going to be honest with. I'm very optimistic. I thought I was going to get a slap on the wrist oldest. Yeah. I thought I was going to. But you know, what in retrospect, and and it's funny. You know, we plan in and the man upstairs laps, and it it almost saved my life. I believe it really saved my life. Because my my diction was out of control. My lifestyle was out of control, and my moral compass was way off and so I needed this time out if you will. And so in in retrospect, I I have to in a weird way. Thank the prosecutor thing the jar. You cold Turkey in prison is that how that happened or Turkey. But that that is how you were able to get off of. Well, I did I did go to rehab before. I I did a detox program, and then I went on and did a behavior modification program for addicts. And so on and so forth, but the monkey was stolen my back. You know, I had all all that pressure. I know I d- if I was going to go to prison or not, and you know, while I was in rehab. They told me we'll do this this way. We, you know, we'll get we're going to help you not not not go to prison, and you adopt point in time. My biggest fear was was going to prison. I've never been to prison before never even got an a DUI in my life. So it was this weighed on me, and and waited on on on my family, and I was hoping for for the best. But, you know, sometimes we don't we don't know what's best for us. And so I I truly believe that when I got those forty eight months, it's when I was able to breathe that Sira leaf. It was like, well, I'm gonna prison. I'm going as crazy. That's how crazy and out of control my life was where hey you going to prison. It was like, wow. Okay. Thank god. No cars waiting outside my house. No paranoia will not that kind of paranoia. I mean, there are all sorts of different. Now paranoia is that would arrive in prison. It doesn't feel like it would be very safe now twenty up in a camp in Alabama federal prison and was like low security. It was Campos. Minimum right. Minimum. Minimum. Yeah. So Tony is they're teaching..

"Detail after detail explained to the audience who hasn't seen this movie. What you think are the details that will be most ridiculous. Well, first and foremost movies called screwball. So it is a bit of a farce. It's a it's a comedy really is what it is one of our first sort of comedy, documentaries that we've ever made. And really, I think the to put it into perspective the fact that the highest paid baseball player of all time his career was ended over a four thousand dollar debt between a cocaine addicted fake, doctor and his fake tan addicted steroid patient, I think gives you some idea about era was just collateral damage in this. This was a beef between Tony Bosch and porter Fisher that that just brought down all of these major duty a baseball players along with him. But it is ultimately this Elmore. Leonard Carl hyacinth Coen brothers esque a botched kind of robbery it's a Carl hiaasen novel. It is something that is. Distinctly miami. It couldn't have happened anywhere else. But my did you see Tony wince when I said fake doctor? Did you see him wince as I said see him? Once you still don't like fake doctor. I mean, you had the lab coat. And it said Dr Tony about who think it's a comedy. Do you sit there because I watched and I'm like, this is a comedy. But did you think it was a comedy watching it? Or was it your way of being able to tell your story? And if you wanna laugh, you can laugh, but at least you're getting the details out there you want. Well, listen, it was a comedy. But the whole story was a comedy. I laughed all the way through over the years. I was I was laughing. So why not why not pick the right way in the movie? But were you laughing you aren't laughing once it was really coming down on you. Where are you? There was a dark period in there. So there was a very very dog period. Very Doug period for me, my family that lasted quite some time closer to years or more than that. And you asked me about the the common of fake doctor. And again, it is what it is. I'm not gonna I don't think my my purpose of being here. Today's really to defend myself, but I do have over twenty eight years of experience. I do have a doctor. Degree in allopathic medicine from the school performing arts like Tim O Frank like likes to say I did research for many years in this field. I worked with endocrinologist for many years in this field. Obviously that wasn't part of the movie, and I understand is a slanted lopsided filmmaker. Only interested in comedy didn't give your resume. Nobody wants to resume. Nobody. I know that I know that nobody wants my resume. It's all for entertainment purposes, to be quite honest. I don't get it. They say com- comedy is tragedy plus time. So I think that over time I think he's Tony's probably come to see the humor in it. And I will say this. He's not defending his resume, nor am I, but I will say that as Tony mentioned earlier the proof is in the pudding. He got results for his clients. This is not a business that Tony was advertising in the traditional sense out. There was no billboards. There were not commercials other no magazine heads it was word of mouth. So there were clients that Tony had that were getting the results they wanted that were coming to him to lose weight. Everybody was Ryan Braun. Manny. Ramirez the stories in the in the movie are hundred hundred cops hundred cop clients late people just in the community, and they were getting results, and they were telling their friends and their friends were coming to to be treated by by Tony Bosch that really happened. And so like, I said, I'm not going to sit here and defend myself, and I had two choices when I left prison when the second coming of Tony Bosch was going to happen. And I had to choice to run away from my password. Embrace my pass. I've never seen anybody grow from running away from their pass. So I made the choice to embrace what I did wrong. The short could site took who I was who I am now and move on and move..

"Then a month we paid back. I was like, okay. You can't understand the deal that porter and Tony Bosch made for four thousand dollars. It's probably because the deal doesn't make any sense. You know, we've made a lot of sports documentaries and something like the u or the you park too. It's a pretty straightforward borderline paint-by-numbers exercise, not to belittle the. Angst of of making documentary. But the interview players interview coaches, they talk about games, and you show footage from those games. The thing screwball is not about sports. It's certainly sports Jason. But they might mention over the hour and forty minutes of the movie, they mentioned three different baseball games. There's one game against Kansas City after Tony Bosch starts treating a rod when he hits three home runs in that one game. I asked him how he felt he says, you know, I feel like I'm eighteen again. I don't know what fuel you put in there. But whatever it is just keep on putting it that's seconds out of the whole thing. So we realized we all of this story takes place in nightclubs and locker rooms and hotels, and in these shady clinics, and so there's no footage of that. And then listening to the way Tony Bosch told a story and Puerto Fisher told the story who are our two primary narrators I said old they're so vivid in the moment when they tell the story, they do it. For example, I walked into his office. And I said I want my money. So what I'll have him. Tony. This isn't a game. I want my money back your way behind I want my money. I'm Dr twenty mosh. What are you going to do about it? Both of them spoke like in dialogue. So take me to the moment. When you have the idea to use actors to help you tell this story. I mean where were you and? What made you think of that drunk? I was drunk obviously, say, oh, well, we could drunk history. This okay, we need to pause here for a second to explain drunk history. It started out on YouTube..

"So because they have to go up against players who are actually doping, but again baseball, it's different. I mean, I remember is playing high school baseball that there was a lot of pressure about chewing tobacco. For example. The chewing tobacco was always part of playing baseball. And there's a lot of peer pressure about that. Are creating became a big substance in the nineties. I remember you go to GNC and you'd get the creatine, and it would help you with your weight lifting routine or whatnot. And high school is school kid. I know kids were taking taking create teen at chewing and using chewing tobacco. So which is not a performance as it was just part of the culture of baseball. But I would say while and I want to say very clearly the high school patients that Tony Bosch had. That was a crime. And in fact, he went to prison for that. I think it's child abuse. And we said where was the department of children family services because those children did not just come in off the street? They were brought by adults to his to his clinic. But ultimately, I gotta be honest. I don't really give a shit about steroids in baseball. That is really a contractual arrangement between when people go. There are league. It's a legal substance. It's legal. It's their banned in the context in in many cases in the case of human, growth hormone and toss room when you're getting a legitimate prescription from a real doctor, that's a contractual arrangement in in in the between the players union and the and the league's for me. It's not something that we should be making a federal case out of literally when you have baseball players dragged in front of congress understand they have a legal monopoly, and so congress exercises a bit more oversight. But that's all dog and pony political nonsense political theater. Because if you wanna talk about a real national health and safety issue, there's one shot in the documentary. And there wasn't any way to really dive into that or create a pod out of it. But Tony Bosch says very explicitly that he had a hundred cop clients. So we had one hundred police officers from variety of jurisdictions down here in south Florida who came to his clinic shouldn't congress hold hearings about that. Nobody from any police department that I'm aware of or city commission or mayor or any county commission has asked Tony to follow up on that on who those people were taking steroids, and that creates a serious serious public health and safety issue in their police officers on steroids, and and people often ask me they say who's the new Tony Bosch? There must be somebody new in town where this is going on. Right. I said, okay. Just drive around like south Miami Hialeah, west Miami. Look specifically at strip. Malls, find one that has a sign that says clinic, and like mirrored windows that you can't see inside and has multiple cop cars from different departments parked in front of it. That's probably the new Tony and just to follow up on that wind. You think it's an issue for whether cops are taking something make their muscles bigger. Well, I think depending on what they're taking. In fact, we just had the former president of the fraternal order of police the police union in Miami actually endorsing on video a quote, weight loss center type of shady sort of gray market anti-aging kind of operation clinic, whatever I don't even know what to call it. That's why. So it's Cain, and shady, but the reason it's a problem is depending on what they're taking it dramatically impacts, their tempers anger impulses. These are men and women who have to make as they say split second life or death decisions. And we've seen a proliferation in Miami Dade County the last ten v. Eighteen twenty years of use police use of force of of on-duty shootings and killings. And I can't imagine that steroids has zero effect on that. And the union has consistently even more successfully than the Baseball Players Association has successfully subverted drug testing specifically steroid testing in their contracts with various jurisdictions..

"Former patient of Tony Bosch porter Fisher, Tim rights being says, hey, listen porter Fisher has asked for your contact info. He'd like to discuss the possibility of of doing a documentary. Can I give him your info? I said sure. And so we met now with porter and now in less than two years, so basically between twenty thirteen to twenty fifteen through all three of the main actors or a main characters in this international scandal had independent of each other reached out to us to discuss the possible. Of doing documentary, and we couldn't help but feel that despite my my my lack of spirituality that the universe was trying to tell us something. And this was probably a story that we should we should pursue. Now. Ultimately, you had wait sometime for Tony Bosch to get out of prison in order to interview. Well, what had happened was his sentence had gotten reduced in the in the meantime, and so once we had this meeting with porter we said, well, if we could get porter, and we could interview Tony than we have a documentary here. And so Billy wrote a letter to Tony Tony Robak saying actually, I'm getting out in three weeks. I'm going to be a halfway house in Miami being released halfway house. And I'll be able I was going to visit him in Alabama was in a federal camp in Alabama where he was teaching nutrition. His fellow inmates. And in fact, doing protocols for the guards in his inmates based on the supplements vitamins, you could obtain at the commissary in guys wanted weight loss or muscle building. He would always writing protocols and also at the prison say they prisoners criminal college. And so in this case turned out to be true because one of his one of his other inmates at the federal prison camp was Jeffrey Skilling of Enron fame who apparently was teaching business and some sort of economics courses and Jesse Jackson junior. Was there teaching some sort of political science course? So Joni says, let's let's get together and revisit this conversation. We had at that point less than two years earlier. And once we met Puerto Fisher, and Tony Bosch, it became abundantly clear that they were the story that a-rod was at best supporting character in the scandal. And that the real conflict in the real drama and the real comedy was born. Out of the fact that the highest paid baseball player in history. His career was ended over a four thousand dollar debt between a cocaine addicted fake doctor and his fake tan. Addicted steroid patient that like that was clearly the story that was most compelling most entertaining in the one that we ultimately wanted to tell I always described this film as being akin to the crime comedies of an Elmore. Leonard door, Carl hyacinth and and. I wonder if you see that those are two of my literary heroes growing up on the skewed Florida. Take of Carl hiaasen is certainly I think shape both mind Billy's perspective is nonfiction columns when we were kids. Yeah. And we constantly refer to south Florida's sunny place for shady people. I frequently tweet articles about schemes and scams out of Miami..

"I got the sense of what this was all about. And so my spreaker when we sat down was who's gonna call page six you're us and some people chuckled, Alex. I don't remember chuckling at the time he was in the midst of fighting for his career in a livelihood. So he didn't really seem to have much of a sense of humor. But sure enough within a week or two it was in. It was in page six and I'll tell you that we didn't we didn't call page six, but it was very clear that we were sort of pawns. In Alex's PR offensive against major league baseball in an attempt to kind of I don't know what to intimidate them that he was going to spill the beans on what I'm not sure. But we sat there with Alex for about an hour and a half hilarious to me that a guy who is under investigation for drugging baseball decides. You know, who I'm going to get I'm going to get the guys made cocaine Cowboys. But we sat there for an hour maybe hour and a half during which Alex sitting close to me as you are right now. Just lied and lied and lied and lied, and I found some of it very compelling jumping now and say Billy you've made films about football. I think that's more your sport. Elfriede your the baseball fan in this degenerate baseball fan. And so we sat there listening to Alex. Deny everything and deny having taken steroids and being involved with Tony Bosch. And so building I walked out of there. And I said, I said, I said, I I think he's terribly compelling character. I think you made a lot of very compelling points. And I was persuaded on some of it, and I didn't buy it at all. And sure enough couple of weeks later, the arbitrator found him guilty, and and Alex was suspended. Alfred is the baseball expert in in this company. I'm not I referred to screen saver. I think the players are one collective bargaining agreement away from hitting a ball and then hopping onto a golf cart and riding around the bases. I'm not I mean, I get it. But doesn't have the integrity of the NFL. It's no shocker that. America's pastime is filled with liars and cheaters let's just put it. Let's put it that way. But but definitely Alfred in fact, and you're this I thought was going to be an interesting kind of ice breaker as well. Alfred pitched against a rod in a summer league in high school. We had a I played high school baseball in Dade County. Alex few years older than me, but I take onto summer camp down. Ron Frazier sports camp down at the university of Miami. So Alex of the older guys. Who is they did, you know, even then everybody. He was headed out to. He ended up getting drafted number one in the Seattle Mariners. Everybody knew he was he was hot stuff in Dade County and gay couches to breeding ground for baseball players. The talent that comes out of south Florida. We as Billy's fetish is a bit in the U as far as football talent. But baseball talented, south Florida is Jerry and Jose Canseco was obviously our biggest here's his way. Not how'd you do pitching. Hit by off the top of the wall. Triple basically would have an Alfred disaster to a. After their meeting with a rod in twenty thirteen. They never heard from him again. But around six months later, they heard from Tony Bosch, Tony Bosch is the the basically demand at the center of the scandal of the center of the Alex Rodriguez, the biogenesis turds kennel he is went to medical school in Belize never got licensed in the United States to be a doctor but ended up running an anti aging clinic series of a series of anti-aging clinics where he would treat not only local Miami. But also had a roster of athletes professional athletes. So we went and met with Tony Bosch and not only professionals, right? That's right. Well, college and high school players as well. In south Florida. Several of the players have got taken in the two thousand five draft out of the university of Miami were clients of his in fact, his office was right across the street from the university of Miami baseball field, which is known as Alex ROY..

"Ending, you know. Goes down who's in drag who's gene hat. You're you're you're talking about Tony Bosch who is at the center of all of us who's the one who is dispensing all of the the steroids. Using his dad's scrip paper pad to legit doctor, legit doctor. And then this fellow porter Fisher who is just a I don't know. What what what are you describe him the one who is the one who gave the who stole the essentially took the documents from Tony Bosch would just let it lying around the biogenesis office took them and sent them to the press because he was pissed about not getting four thousand dollars back. You know, it's a chunk of change nice chunk of change. But even Tony Bosch in your documentary said he wishes he had paid that money to avoid everything else that had happened. It's insane. I think I'm more interested in hearing. How you describe Puerto Fisher after having watched the Vikings. Just be a sad figure who's just looking for some sort of relevance. You know, I that's what I found it be in these documents, and he took these documents from so he stole the documents from Tony Bosch, and then the documents were stolen from him and sold not just to the highest bidder. But every better I mean, anybody willing to pay anything for them, and including major league baseball who paid one hundred twenty five thousand cash in a diner out of some slush fund, I presume, I don't think they were going to ten ninety nine. The convicted felon that they were buying these knowingly stolen documents from I don't know where MLB gets a slush fund from but let but so be it. I don't know if they were hustle either. Rob Manfred was in charge of this entire investigation. But listen you go down to Miami. I mean when you roll around in the swamp, you're gonna get some motto. You know what? I mean, they played down. There. You gotta you gotta root this thing out. I mean. In in in a way to 'cause everybody was saying, you know, how does how does the NFL not get the TMZ tapes of all these players that that TMZ has the tapes. And the reason why they're they're not gonna take some sort of could you imagine if the NFL nobody trusts what it is. It's the same. Could you imagine if the NFL took a slush fund and gave it to somebody who for whatever their reason wanted to leak this tape when they had no right to could you imagine you're assuming they do that. They don't otherwise. Billy. They don't because otherwise they'd have the tape. Well, Harvey Levin does a here's what what they did these convicted felons while they're selling MLB, the stolen documents for cash in a diner. They had a buddy at another table with an iphone filming the transaction. So that they can sell the video of the transaction to a-rod Disney like, hey, you can then release this, and they wound up route one getting scared about this and they deleted from the hard drive. And but but a rod bought a blank hard-drive from them for six figures, we have the wire transfer. It's in the documentary and the an era allegedly spent thousands more sending the hard drive around the world to data recovery services to try to get this deleted footage back and unfortunately couldn't. And so we got footage America's sweetheart Alison is hysterical. Listen, I don't he was desperate and any geek group in Miami. Sunny place for shady people. You know, he's gonna it rubs off on you and the type of characters you surround yourself doing the fact that when you think about the career of the highest paid baseball player in history effectively ended over a four thousand dollar debt between a cocaine addicted fake, doctor and his fake tan. Addicted steroid patient just kind of wonderful, by the way, Billy Corgan you. I mean, find point on me stuck the landing on that one. And and that's why you're talking it's called screwball. And I guess we kind of buried lead, which is a great way to finish up. Our conversation here is there's so many stories that required reenactment because you don't have the footage. Obviously of Tony Bosch talking to Puerto Fisher war porter Fisher to who was a sky. Right. I mean, you don't have these these these moments documented with film. So you recreated them using children. Oh my God. I can't I mean, wh why did you think I have a theory as to why I guess you set it at the very big. Ginning, but. Some of the things these guys are saying it sounds like they're five years old. And use us kids were like literally what eight ten twelve years ten. Yeah. Right around there. The most foul things. Modelling. Now, Alvin you're using Tony Bosch is sit down interview off camera. But on camera the kids mouthing wearing hairpieces and dressed up facial hair. Yeah. And we have to remember like when we make sports documentaries. Like the u thirty for thirty for example. I don't mean to knock our hustle. It's still documentaries or a challenge to make. But the formulas clear you talk to sportspeople sports. People talk to you about sports games, you go get footage of sports games and put sports game footage on top of sports people talking about sports. That's that's how it goes here. This wasn't about sports. Yeah. It was baseball adjacent. But all these events occur in some shady fake doctor's clinic in a locker room at a hotel at a bar and nightclub for example, live in Miami Beach, the fountain blue, and so what do you do? There's no footage show. We did re-creations when you were going to have to and I was listening to the character's talking during the interviews. Tony and porter who don't like each other. Spoiler alert. They have a very similar way of talking talking dialogue there like I walked into his office. And I said, where's my money? And he said, I don't have your money. And I said you get my money, and he's just about it. And I'm like, I appreciate you cleaning up the conversation. But I realize we could drunk history this because they're talking so we have. Gers lip sync the dialogue, but the actors will all be eight nine ten years old. And not only did did it strike me that they all acted like children, but he kind of works for me on multiple layers. Not the least of which is is that, you know, Tony Bosch ultimately, and rightfully so went to federal prison for not only treating professional athletes high school kids as well, whose parents and coaches brought them to Tony Bosch to try to get an advantage in the in the draft. And so that combined with the fact that like I said in the end we deal with this a little bit. The these athletes are heroes and role models to young children, and they're sending a message loud and clear and the kids are getting it because I do QNA's with some of the actors the young actors from the movie who answer the question of the audience when they say, what is the moral of the story. What did you learn? What are we supposed to glean from all this Brian Blanco the young kid who plays? Tony Bosch in the lab coat and everything he says, oh, I know. I know you don't have to raise your hand. It's a it's all yours. Do the floor is yours. He's ted. And what are you gonna do? He said lie cheat and steal. And that's how you win. Oh, no. And I'm like, and when it comes from him, it's a little more depressing than what I say it. But the truth is this is these are the lessons that were teaching children. Now, I mean who wanted this? I know obviously, Alex is a totally new life in a new reputation and he's living at and he's living at well. But Tony Bosch is a convicted felon. I didn't see I didn't look at anybody in this movie and say these people have one, you know, I mean, and and I honestly not not a single person comes off like. Anything positive in a way in this whole situation. Although again, I I don't blame baseball for doing whatever the heck it needed to do to move. This thing out. That's that's my belief. But just seeing at the end of this thing and Pedro Gomez came off. I guess. He's the only one by the way the child who plays him. So look Billy. This is this is just this is truly something else, man. But last one for you here, did did you believe Tony Bosch me because the guy's using the still referring people he was treating his patients. I mean, come on. Now, the did you did they goes to jail. The obviously he's got a story to tell. But he also has I'll tell you one person who believes in Tony Bosch is Tony Bosch that man has a lot of self confidence. And despite the fact that he went to medical school in Belize, what one of our interview subjects refers to as the belief school of the medical in performing arts. He he very much is a true believer in his own ability. I will tell you this guy didn't do at traditional advertising because this was very much a grey market business at best. He he's thrived on word of mouth, and he got that word of mouth because he got results for his clients. So he was doing something right now. I'll tell you what are the epilogues. We didn't get to do in the in the movies ran out of time and money, but Tony winds up in minimum security federal prison camp in Alabama. And he's there. Teaching nutrition to his fellow inmates. Jeff skilling from Enron is their business to their fellow come on. Jesse Jackson junior is in prison. They teaching political science and civics fell inmates. And yeah, I mean, listen, we're just trying to Maga trying to make a rod great again. That's what we're trying to. Dr Hannibal Lecter is teaching a class on yards. Arts. Oh my gosh. Billy. Thanks for coming on..
"tony bosch" Discussed on KTKR 760AM
"I guess has been on the show before when he was promoting the documentary cocaine Cowboys a few years ago, his thirty for thirty on the u is some mossy stuff so is screwball. The documentary film about the biogenesis scandal from his native, Miami, Florida. Good to see you Billy Corgan. How are you brother? I'm great. Thanks. So let's get into this thing right here. This documentary is about the Tony Bosch scandal. That got a rod a year's suspension. Manny Ramirez got popped and milky Cabrera got popped. Why did you make this documentary? Billy actually in November of two thousand thirteen we were pitched by Alex Rodriguez. Okay. So this you're laughing already at that. What? Okay. 'cause they can this documentary is not very what's the word for. It's not very complimentary to Alex Rodriguez getting an invitation to the wedding. If that's what you mean. Right. Yeah. But it's also extremely accurate. It's all very true. It's all exactly how it happened. I mean, the stories are being told by Tony Bosch or Dr Tony Bosch. Quotes who is the one who is at the center of all of this. And his dad was the one who was writing the prescriptions for these drugs and an also the fellow Puerto Fisher who was the one who leaked the documents, so whistle blower, the whistle blower, and these guys are telling the story from their own first person and your unique way in which you you have them tell their stories we'll get to in a second. But this is absolutely straight from the horse's mouth that we're seeing right here. Yeah. Person. Why did Alex Rodriguez pitch you this idea in November of two thousand thirteen he was in the midst of the arbitration with MLB he was the only one of the players involved in the biogenesis scandal that appealed his suspension? I guess why not what do you have to lose? It was the longest suspension in the history of the game. So no eleven games went for it. And so each a break from that arbitration and came down to his office in Coral Gables in the suburbs, very affluent suburb of Miami where the university of Miami's actually located Alex Rodriguez field is located and his public. Hit me up and said, Alex would like to meet with you to discuss the possibility of doing a tell all documentary, and I was like hell, yeah. I'll take that meeting. I thought we were gonna do it real hush. Hush quiet at his office. And it turns out they wanted to meet us on a weekday at high noon at the most popular restaurant in town like the power lunch. Spot of Coral Gables, which is like two miles from UM, which it any anywhere. I'm gonna get recognized because of the documentaries. It's going to be place that proximity to UM. And so it was very clear that my producing partner Alfred spellman, and I attended that event as like pawns in Alex's kind of PR offensive against MLB at the time. You remember it was like they were in a battle of the legacies and Alex. Yeah. There is a a whole story about how the protesters outside were actually paid for by Alex Rodriguez on earth that was ever absolutely mentored. Okay. So yeah. And it was it was ugly. There was no other way to describe it. I think initially baseball has become like, I think everything else in American life, including politics. It's the WWE and back when bud C-league the steroid Commissioner was on his way out the door on the eve of his retirement was kind of like, well, maybe I should do something about this. Now that this scandal has erupted in two thousand thirteen he talks to his second command. Rob Manfred says let's look like we're doing something about this. So they come down to Miami had this farcical investigation that involves the MLB investigators. They have like this internal FBI of like former cops they go. They sleep with a former nurse of Tony Bosch at one of his clinics. They're paying people off they got a slush fund of one hundred twenty five thousand grand that they're buying stolen medical records in a diner from convicted felon. The whole thing is just utter. Utterly absurd. And then they nail Alex because what bigger scalp can you get? And then bud retires. Rob Manfred takes over and he goes, well, what's the story line? Now, what better than to make a he'll a hero and bring back not only a-rod, but but Charlie hustle to the game to become commentators and Pete Rose in who's out there anymore, of course. But like work, I mean, it's the bottom line company. And it's a brilliant storyline. Are you saying major league baseball was orchestra has orchestrated? To to well, what used to be two fifths of the people on the set of FOX baseball. Is that what you're saying? I'm saying that it's it's awfully convenient. And it's awfully brilliant. I think Alex is spectacularly good at that job, his hustle at all. And so he's he's earned that position. He certainly lightened up. He's a lot funnier. A lot more self effacing. I'm certainly more. So than the guy net for lunch in two thousand thirteen who was in a battle for his life. His legacy his career his livelihood. And he spent an hour hour and a half just lying, right? Your faces about everything ever meeting. Tony Bosch ever cheating or using performance enhancing drugs at that stage of his career. It was a pretty wild meeting and needless to say after that we didn't hear back much from them. I was gonna ask you Bill. The director of screwball about the biogenesis scandal. Again in theaters Friday and numerous streaming platforms the following Friday after that, well, how did the meeting with Iran finish up? I mean, what happened just more lies, basically? And so we walked away. I thought he was a fascinating guy really fragile guy a sensitive guy at the time not much of a sense of humor or sell any sense of self awareness. But I thought what a compelling character to be able to examine to interview. And I emailed them for the next six seven eight months, the the arbitration resolve in January of two thousand fourteen he got a sentence reduction if he will but still a season long suspension. And so by the middle of two thousand fourteen it seemed obvious that they were not really interested in participating in an interview or documentary. And and why not at the strategy has paid off this whole kind of head in the sand ignored. And it'll go away strategy has certainly worked for them. I think it's one of the most remarkable. Image rehabilitations in the history of public relations. It's not just that though. I mean, he had he did come out. And when he did show back up with the with the Yankees, he came out and threw himself basically on on the the sword. I mean, he did come out and give a complete total mayor culpa. He went made fun of himself on the stage of the SP's. I mean, he has had as you pointed out, you said, no sense of humor about himself or anything like that. He has seen to take a total reverse pivot on how he has portrayed himself or how he has taken on what he did. Absolutely. Who who? Okay, you taking. Much of a mayor culpa, Tori. I didn't really acknowledge what he did. Or didn't do what he lied about. The other players like Ryan Braun that he threw under the bus that his camp deliberately leaked in order to take some of the attention away from him in the thick of the scandal. I don't think he really fessed up to it. I don't think did he ask you. I mean, obviously doesn't have to. But I'm just saying I don't think he really did any kind of a comprehensive apology our discussion about I think how profoundly disappointing it was for legions of of young kids who look up to these athletes as heroes and role models. So then somebody who did speak with him when he was at a low point. Yeah. And then as you point out, you think you were used as a prop or used in a certain way, particularly on totally cool with that name right in page six. Thank you. Thank you. She was publicised. This is all just setting up the the ultimate question. And I think a lot of fans are wondering hearing this. If they already weren't wondering it to begin with who's the Alex Rodriguez that we're seeing today, I think a liberated man I think this was a guy who was kind of trapped by his own kind of failed persona in baseball. Who was booed by fans in baseball, never really a beloved pop culture figure a guy who was almost in a way, liberated when he hit rock bottom in this scandal. And now feels free to I hope this him. Meaning like, I think maybe that this is the, you know, the person he was always supposed to be always wanted to be but felt constrained by fame and fortune. And of course, when you're generating that kind of revenue over four hundred million dollars over a career, you have so many people around you who rely on you. And so you don't really have a chance to kind of free yourself and go out in public and feel like you can joke around. And just be you. And I think I think it's liberating for someone to be out of the game. Like the only game. He's the only thing he's ever known. The only thing he's ever been told these good at and the interesting thing about screwball as it turns out. It's not about Alex Rodriguez. Don't tell him that. But it's not about a rod. It's about these bizarre Elmore. Leonard Carl hyacinth almost Coen brothers esque characters to create way to put an habit. This only in Miami kind of world, and it's the weirdest birdcage I've ever seen. Bizarre. And you can't make it up because it's it's it's nonsense. Family.

Steroid scandal in sports history exploded over four thousand dollars. It's look if I don't get my money up blow this whole thing up put a bit. It was just a bit get rid of steroids. Now, this is my whole life my legacy. You told me why she served one any Tony Bosh? Tony Bosch is a drug coke addicts bad son that father bad brother, bad, Emily. What can you tell us about? No, he's lucky. He's not in the canal anywhere. This guy's connected. A lot of people don't do this. You're gonna get killed. So I got my nine millimeter. That guy's a messy sleazy thing. Major league baseball did and trained to pay witnesses threatening people too plop rate a rod in his crew. We're doing almost the exact he pretty much can forget the hall of fame. We've almost like, hey, mom. I made it to the big leagues. But in a different way. You can make this. That's incredible. That's good. It's wild. I can't wait. I cannot wait Bosch seems like he's what's Italian. He's Cuban Cuban Cuban. Yeah, he's he's got his last name is is actually no relation to Chris Bosh Miami Heat. But his last name is has hold a lot of sway on the streets of Miami. And the Cuban exile community his dad's cousin Orlando Bosch is one of the most famous anti-castro Cuban exile terrorists in history among his on his resume. He stood on the causeway, connecting the city of Miami and Miami Beach right by the port of Miami. All the cruise ships are and he had a bazooka on his shoulder this in the late seventies. And he fired a missile at a polish freighter because companies to come in east. And fortunately, it didn't arm as it fired. He just hit the side of the freighter rolled into the to the water Christ Jesus jail time for that. Oh, hell, yeah. But he's a hero in the Miami Cuban exile community. So it's just it's that kind of story. That's that's little. Tidbits like that. And you know, and then, of course, a bunch of kids running around facial hair and lab coats. It's all forms, and I can't wait super creative the way he did it. Here's what's clear to me, too is so we know all this stuff about Bosch. We know about you know, the the stuff with the NFL in the dude in northern Kelly. What's his name, the guy who got Balci all that? But if people think that the P D's, and all that stuff isn't going on right now, there's another sort of there's there's gonna be a whole nother thing. And people say you're like in Miami. Like who's the new Tony Bosch like in Miami? Like, where do you go like new it's real easy to figure out you drive around south Miami Little Havana, Hialeah suburbs of Miami Dade? And you look in like office parks strip malls. You find like a nondescript place where it says like clinic on the outside, and like a mirrored or tinted window and a bunch of cop cars from different police departments parked in front of it. And that's why the cop cars because they're watching what he know their clients twenty Bosh had a hundred cop clients, usually massages from I gotta get on fucking.

Goes down, and you're an exhaust who's in drag whose Gene Hackman, you're you're you're talking about Tony Bosch who is at the center of all of this. Who's the one who is dispensing all of the the steroids using his dad's scrip paper pad to Dr legit doctor? And then this fellow porta Fisher. Who is just a I don't know. What what what do you describe him the one who is the one who gave the who stole the he sensually took the documents from Tony Bosch, just let it lying around the biogenesis office took them and sent them to the press because he was pissed about not getting four thousand dollars back. It's you know, it's a chunk chain nice chunk of change. But even Tony Bosch and your documentary said he wishes he had paid that money to avoid everything else that it happened. It's insane. I just didn't hearing how you describe Puerta Fisher. After having watched it. This one will be a sad figure who's just looking for some sort of relevance. You know, I that's what I any founded be in these documents, and he took these documents from so he still the documents from Tony Bosch, and the documents were stolen from him and sold not just to the highest bidder. But every bitter. I mean, anybody willing to pay anything for them, and including major league baseball who's paid one hundred twenty five thousand cash in a diner out of some slush fund, I presume, I don't think we're going to ten ninety nine. The convicted felon that they were buying these knowingly still in documents from I don't know where Moby gets a slush fund from. But so be it. I don't know hustle either. Rob Manfred was in charge of this entire investigation. But listen go down to Miami. I mean when you roll around on the swamp, you're gonna get some mud on you. Down there. If you gotta you gotta root this thing out. I mean in a way to because everybody was saying, you know, how does how does the NFL not get the TMZ tapes of all these players that TMZ has the tapes on and the reason they're they're not gonna take some sort of could you imagine if the NFL trusts on what it is this could you imagine if the NFL took a slush fund and gave it to somebody who for whatever their reason wanted to leak this tape when they had no right to could you imagine you're assuming that they don't are the ones that Billy? They don't because otherwise they'd have the tape and here. Well, here's eleven does. Well, here's what what they did these convicted felons while they're selling MLB stolen documents for cash in a diner. They had a buddy at another table with an iphone filming the transaction. So that they can sell the video of the transaction two. A rod to say like, hey, you can then release and they wound up creating route one of getting scared about this. And they deleted it from the hard drive. And but but a-rod bought a blank hard-drive from them for six figures, we have the wire transfer. It's in the documentary and the an era allegedly spent thousands more sending the hard drive around the world to data recovery services to try to get this deleted footage back and unfortunately couldn't. And so we got footage America's sweetheart Alison hundred hysterical. Like, listen. I don't he was desperate. And he grew up in Miami. It's like sunny place for shady people. You know, he's going to it rubs off on you, and the type of characters you surround yourself doing the fact that when you think about it. The career of the highest paid baseball player in history effectively ended over a four thousand dollar debt between a cocaine addicted fake doctor and his fake tan. Addicted steroid patient just kind of wonderful, by the way, Billy Corgan. I mean fine point on stuck the landing on that one. And that's why you're documentaries called scruple.

It's funny as the Royd era could be a major league baseball can tell by the title of it kind of worry comes out with it. And the way he approached it a Rod's right in the middle of it does not look good at all for a rod man ram anything that involves man ram. Taking drugs is of interest to me. Tony Bosch biogenesis that needs a little room to breathe. So that's going to be tomorrow. Jim Rome podcast drops tomorrow. Look for that. Dear rome. Yeah. I remember when Carmelo was a factor. I was just a young lad listening to the Jim Rome show. And I remember it like it was yesterday. Kurt Warner was in the final chapter of a great career, Ken Griffey junior was still playing ball and doing steroids. And Vicki no Cal was actually a factor on smack off day, man. Those were the days Tyler in shred Minton salary. You gotta be careful about what you're thrown out there. Ken Griffey junior was still playing ball and doing steroids. Griffey and Royds. How do you know that? Can you just throw that out there? Anyway, speaking of roads, that's really interesting that he said that right after I said what I said about tomorrow's episode of the Jim Rome podcast now there are guys doing Royds to be sure guys associated with biogenesis guys like man ram guys. Like a rod. It's amazing part of this movie were a-rod says he gets a meeting with Tony Bosch and a-rod says in Iran already been busted a-rod had already lied on national TV about Royds, and then he gets a meeting with Bausch. And he says give me what you gave Manny. And he'd already been busted. And the day rod wanted to get to eight hundred home runs. And then the only thing more amazing is how despicable that was how bad that guy. Looked in. The fact that everybody hated a-rod is now everybody loves a rod. And why is that because it all comes around because of his celebrity girlfriend because he ends up on TV and talks baseball pretty intelligently? I really don't know. But if you watch this movie, you won't love a-rod. But no junior Ken Griffey junior was not linked Tyler. Until you linked him to Royds. Junior. That's not me. That's Tyler and treadmills, and he can own that one. He can wear that. He said I remember like it was yesterday. I was a young lad listening to the Jim Rome show. Kurt Warner in the foul chapter of a great career Vikyno Cal actually a factor on smack off day, man. Those were the days Tyler interrupt, Milton. Robert tweets. Hey melo.

Mom was a little bit different different by different. I mean in all the millions of injuries. I've done nobody ever ask for foot lotion before we start our conversation. I mean, I dunno weird weird stuff. But amazing player that can make an argument that he's in the top five NFL players ever. And no, I don't think of him as a Seattle Seahawk.

Whether it's your padding stats, you're chasing the ring you chasing money. They've gotta rip that jersey off your chest. Whatever it is you run that risk of wrecking your legacy.
