    A-Rod Ban Likely Thru 2014 Season

    Hope it's true and would be awesome if it turned out to be lifetime. Not a baseball fan but love to see cheaters get punished. Especially the ******* arrogant type.

    MLB Sources: A-Rod faces long ban - ESPN

    It would probably be more punishment to make him play.

    I'm glad this witch hunt is almost over. Selig is such a joke.

    Hate this because his team is actually advocating for a lifetime ban so they can get out from under one of the worst contracts in the MLB. I hope they let him play next week. Screw the Yankees.

Why aren't these other clowns getting suspended for 200 games? He's inconsistent with everything he does. The fact that MLB STILL doesn't have instant replay is beyond pathetic. The fact that the All-Star game means something is also pathetic. He's just bad at his job and needs to retire already.

    No problem with the Braun suspension. This is essentially a second strike in my mind, and after he blatantly lied on national TV last year(anyone who has taken a chemistry course knew he was lying as well), I am fine with his suspension. He is actually receiving less games than a true second strike calls for.

    I don't really have a problem with it either. I just want these other guys held to the same standards. The only reason he's being harsher on Braun and A-Rod is because they're big names.

    Yeah, it has nothing to do with them lying publicly (more than once).

    Because they're the only ones that have lied?

    Yankees are cutting the wage bill quite a bit and will get wieters if arods contract gets canned. Yankees need to get younger

    Re: A-Rod Ban Likely Thru 2014 Season

    I don't understand why everyone hates A-Rod so much. I don't really care either way, but he seems no more worse than any of the other performance enhancing drug users.

    I swear they've been saying they were going to ban him for life or until 2015 for the past 6 months. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Steroids saved baseball and Selig knows it now as well as he knew it then. That alone makes this and the Braun situation a complete joke.

    Personally, I say let them all juice. I want to see guys sweating horse roids while blasting 700 foot HR's off 120 MPH fastballs.

    Bingo. He had no problem with anything when McGuire and Sosa were getting interest back into the game after the strike had hurt it.
