07:22 AM ET 08.08 | Everth Cabrera, as a promising young infielder hoping to make the Padres, had a nagging shoulder injury that threatened to stall his career before it took off. With spring training approaching and his shoulder not fully healed, Cabrera said, he made a grave mistake: he listened to Juan Carlos Nunez, an interpreter and aide who worked for Cabrera's agent. ... [All 12 suspended] players were current or former clients of ACES, a prominent New York sports agency run by Sam and Seth Levinson, where Nunez had worked since about 2006. Nunez, a Washington Heights travel agent who became essentially a personal valet for the Levinsons' Spanish-speaking clients, has emerged as a key bridge, between the anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis, and a wide circle of professional baseball players.

So why no investigation into Sam and Seth Levinson?

So - the was a common link. I didn't know that. Agreed - they need to be investigated and if they facilitated supplying PED's, lose their certification as sport agents.

He looks like he's about to catch a fly with his tongue.

No. No he won't. And what a stupid picture, with his mouth hanging open and all.

I'm betting the Levinsons blame it all on Cabrera going rogue without them knowing anything about it.

I think he's getting a reach around from Madonna.

That's what they've done. I understand MLB has tentatively cleared the Levinsons.

How does that explain all their other clients?
