MLB prepared to ban Alex Rodriguez for life

Quote:
Commissioner Bud Selig is prepared to levy a lifetime suspension on New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, while suspending about eight others before the weekend, two people with knowledge of the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports.

The people were unauthorized to speak publicly because no announcement is expected until Thursday or Friday.

Rodriguez, according to his attorney, David Cornwell, will appeal any suspension, regardless of the severity. The other players are expected to receive 50-game bans, and most are considering accepting the discipline without appealing, according to one of the people.

It would seem that the league would have to be the ones enforcing the drug policy for violations.

They already are and have been for decades. There's no going back and changing that now.

So they want to end his career, but not lifetime-ban him.

basically

MLB probably went to Alex and said you have 2 choices.

1. accept the year and half suspension and still have a chance to go into the HOF,play again(remote) and get to negotiate about the remaining 60 million of your contract with Yankees

or

2. fight the suspension and we will go for a lifetime ban. If you lose then you lose everything ... current career,remainder of contract money,chance to go into HOF


since his career is mostly over anyway he is probably going to accept the suspension and just start fighting for the 60 million from the Yankees.

Barring last-minute change, baseball will allow A-Rod to play through appeal of his suspension, starting tomorrow night.

A-Rod suspended for 211 games; expected to appeal
Paul White, USA TODAY Sports 3:16 p.m. EDT August 5, 2013
2013-07-31-arod-main
Yankees slugger has 72 hours to file appeal of suspension that starts Thursday.

Nelson Cruz and Jhonny Peralta among players to be banned for 50 games

Alex Rodriguez was suspended effective Thursday through the 2014 season and 12 other major and minor leaguers for 50 games in the most sweeping sanctions in Major League Baseball's decade-long battle against performance-enhancing drugs -- but the New York Yankees third baseman expects to be in the lineup for tonight's game in Chicago.

The most significant other names on the list announced today by MLB as part of its investigation into the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic include Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz, Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta and San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera. They follow Milwaukee Brewers All-Star Ryan Braun, who agreed to a 65-game suspension two weeks ago.

While the others accepted their punishment, Rodriguez can continue to play as he is expected to appeal his suspension, which amounts to 211 games. Rodriguez is scheduled to play his first major league game of the season tonight after offseason hip surgery.

Rodriguez has 72 hours to file a grievance. The appeal would be heard within 10 days by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, and he has 25 days to render a decision.

"Rodriguez's discipline under the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program is based on his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and Human Growth Hormone, over the course of multiple years," MLB said in a statement. "Rodriguez's discipline under the Basic Agreement is for attempting to cover-up his violations of the Program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the Office of the Commissioner's investigation. The suspension, which will become effective on Thursday, August 8, will cover 211 Championship Season games and any 2013 Postseason games in which Rodriguez otherwise would have been eligible to play."

Among the other players suspended for 50 games were: Philadelphia Phillies reliever Antonio Bastardo, New York Mets outfielder Jordany Valdespin, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli, Seattle Mariners minor league catcher Jesus Montero, Mets minor league outfielder Cesar Puello, San Diego Padres minor league pitcher Fautino De Los Santos, Houston Astros minor league pitcher Sergio Escalona, Yankees minor league outfielder Fernando Martinez and free-agent pitcher Jordan Norberto.

MLB also announced there would be no further discipline against Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon, Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. All were involved in the Biogenesis investigation but already have served 50-game suspensions.

Cruz's acceptance stunned the playoff-contending Rangers, who trail the Oakland Athletics by 2 1/2 games in the American League West and have no ready replacement for their right fielder. Cruz ranks fourth in the American League in home runs (27) and fifth in RBI (76).

Cruz would be eligible for the postseason but most significant for the 33-year-old is that he can enter this winter's free-agent market with his punishment behind him.

Perhaps Wickedson will be along later to explain why there are no current or former Cardinals on the list of suspended players.....

Plenty of his beloved Yankmees on there, however.

Man that is tough for the Rangers. They can't hit anyway, then get rid of their power guy - yeesh.
