"60 Minutes" tomorrow night - at an 8 p.m. start - will lead with A-Rod: Show says it has specifics on Major League Baseball's case against the suspended (162 games) Yankee. Details from the press release, and the "he" refers to Anthony Bosch of Biogenisis...

- [Bosch] personally delivered banned substances, including testosterone, insulin-like growth factor 1 and human growth hormone to Rodriguez at least a dozen times and Rodriguez paid him $12,000 a month in cash 

- He personally injected Rodriguez because “Alex is scared of needles, so at times, he would ask me to inject.”

- Rodriguez’s mission was to hit 800 home runs and that the Yankee slugger asked him for what he gave MLB superstar Manny Ramirez, a former Bosch client.

-Text messages obtained by "60 Minutes" between him and Rodriguez indicate that at times they communicated daily about the substances the slugger took on his “protocol.”

- Says Rodriguez associates intimidated him to try to prevent him from cooperating with MLB in its investigation of the Yankee third baseman. MLB [tells Scott]  Pelley that he believes the threats Bosch says he received could be legitimate. “The concerns seemed credible, particularly given that he identified individuals that we had our own concerns about.”
