    A-Rod & Braun Among 20 Possible Suspensions

    Major League Baseball might suspend 20 players, including Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun as part of Miami investigation - ESPN

    Selig has just been itching for the opportunity to nail Braun. Looks like it has arrived!

    There's a fiery place in hell waiting for A-Rod.

    Oh yeah, Soriano, Puhols, Cabrera and Batista may be on the list too. Royals are all safe.

    Well, if a Tiger is going to go for 20 games, I'd much rather it was Jhonny and not Miggy.

    MLB is a joke in regards to PED's. They are starting to look more and more like World Cycling...

    Edit - PED's (typo)

    Re: A-Rod & Braun Among 20 Possible Suspensions

    Are you telling me that Braun might have possibly lied to the public about his high testosterone test in 2012. I don't believe it. Baseball players have never lied about Steroids, HGH, or any banned substance. Ever.

    Thanks for beating me to the punch here.
    Baseball has always been such an honest sport. This is shocking.

    Even Enos Slaughter thinks this cheating crosses the line.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yep. All the doctors in MLB. Kind of ridiculous...

    Re: A-Rod & Braun Among 20 Possible Suspensions

    There has to be a way for the Yankees to sue and get out of that contract. He was signed while allegedly using performance enhancers. Aka cheating.

    Can't that be grounds to void that horrible deal?

    Re: A-Rod & Braun Among 20 Possible Suspensions

    I will be surprised if MLB can make the suspensions stick in this case. MLB and the players union have an agreement where players can be suspended if they flunk drug tests. I'm not sure they can suspend a player because somebody said that they used steroids or somebody said they gave them steroids. Without a positive drug test, I don't know if they can meet the legal proof that the player took the steroids.
