What if Bosch has no further evidence to offer MLB?
It's possible, and this part from Outside the Lines makes it sound almost probable that there's nothing else:
Corroborating evidence against some players could prove difficult to come by, however. Several sources told ESPN that Bosch dealt only in cash, and usually used friends as couriers, sometimes never seeing some of the athletes he served.
If Bosch dealt in cash and didn't necessarily deal with clients face-to-face, then MLB has a problem.
If MLB's records are similar or identical to the records that have come to light through the Miami New Times and other news outlets, then all the league has is a list of names, dollar amounts and substances. What's on those papers isn't going to get any more damning without a paper trail, and Bosch's word isn't going to count for much if he can't say he dealt with some players personally.
Bosch's word, in general, is a flimsy thing. He just told ESPN that accounts of his alleged PED distribution were a "character assassination," and now here he is helping investigators by essentially fessing up to distributing PEDs.
Sounds like a guy trying to save his own butt to me, and guys like that can have their credibility shot in a heartbeat in a courtroom.
Here's another question: If Bosch knows he's on the feds' radar, why the hell would he come clean to MLB about all the chemicals he was distributing? Wouldn't he be, you know, in danger of incriminating himself even further?
Maybe so. Hence the reason he might not offer anything else. Hence the reason MLB's case is probably going to be what it is as soon as Bosch signs off on the league's documents.
With that in mind, we shall wrap this up.
