The man under investigation, Dr. Tony Galea, is charged in Canada with conspiring to smuggle HGH and the drug Actovegin into America as well as conspiracy to smuggle prohibited goods into Canada and unlawfully selling Actovegin. In other words, not the kind of guy you want to be associated with in any way.
The only obvious link between Rodriguez and Galea is that the chiropractor that helped Rodriguez rehab his hip last year is an associate of Galea's. That chiropractor, Mark Lindsay, has also been connected to BALCO.
Rodriguez was doing a pretty good job at staying below the radar this spring training. That is apparently about to change.
