    Bud Selig has got some gigantic balls. I just don't see that suspension holding up in court.

    Arod gets lifetime ban.

    Braun gets 65 game ban to the end of the season. After lying to the MLB and his team is out of playoff contention.

    Selig does way too much to help the Brewers organization.

    Yankees would love to drop that contract.

    ARod evidence is much more overwhelming than Ryan and he is said to be obstructing the investigation. He is making Pete Rose look good.

    Yeah that's ridiculous. I'm no Arod lover (or hater either - I think he gets too much grief to be honest), but there is no reason his penalty should be that much longer than Brauns.

    Unless Braun cut a deal to throw every one else under the bus. In that case enjoy getting thrown at for the rest of your career at the plate.

    I know it's baseball but why the 3 strikes and you're out? They were caught cheating. It's a privilege to play in Majors....I have no problem with lifetime bans for first or second offense.

    He's going to get booed mercilessly for the rest of his career and that is beautiful to me.

    Because it's stupid. Most of the HOF's that everyone likes to tout as honorable players took amphetamines to keep their energy up during the season (they're now banned by mlb). You notice that the other leagues don't have these big pronouncements? Von Miller just got popped by the NFL, do you see wall-to-wall coverage by the tv networks on this issue?

    Re: Arod looking at lifetime ban

    Clark, because tv loves their NFL and does not want to tarnish it. No kidding, Von Miller swept under the rug. ray lewis takes some banned substance plus kills a guy and is a first ballot hall of famer.

    I don't care if the MLB wants to use it. If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying.

    I would be THRILLED if the Yankees could get rid of that contract.

    So would they. Bud's prepared to deliver it in a nice tidy bow.

    Re: Arod looking at lifetime ban

    right or wrong baseball is held up as some glorious escape to what was wonderful in our youth, our country, and the idea that sports are a meritocracy. throughout everything baseball has remained the one constant in our county, played the same for over 100 years. baseball should be held to a higher standard as it's the standard of our country.

    i still believe in the romantic notion that there is baseball and then there is everything else.
