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.

Embattled New York Yankees' third baseman Alex Rodriguez could still be paid $61 million, even if he never plays another Major League Baseball game.

The suspension could be for violating rules on using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). Or it might focus on allegations he tried to thwart MLB's investigation of Biogenesis, the Miami clinic that allegedly supplied him and other baseball stars with PEDs.

While some reports say A-Rod could face a lifetime suspension that could cost him all future earnings, other reports suggest he could be suspended for the rest of this year and all of next season. That year-plus suspension would cost him about $9 million in salary for this year and $25 million he is owed for next year, since players are not paid during suspensions

Thanks. I didn't know that

The strikes tarnished the game. The juicers saved it, imo.

None of the steroid suspected users are going into the HOF anytime soon. McGuire/A-Rod/Bonds/Clemons may not get in until after their death.

That's exactly what is happening. They are also pushing to get him to quit due to injury so that they can collect on an insurance policy.

They should all be given post career lifetime bans effectively banning them from the HOF and their records stricken. Just me though...

There is much truth in that statement. McGuire/Sosa was a national story. People who didn't like baseball were tracking their HR race.

It definitely brought baseball back. No one had a problem with it when it was saving baseball from the strike. Kind of hypocritical.

Not one of them should get in the HOF ever. Not because they used steroids, but because they lied about it when questioned and some still continue to deny that they were users.

I was a kid when the home run chase happened. I had no idea they were juicing. You may not feel betrayed but I certainly do.

The people who were running the game... if they knew? Yeah, hypocritical as hell. That said, perhaps by now they grew a concience... or that fat stack of dollar bills is keeping their pillow dry at night. Nothing for me to give a shit about.

I want a clean game. As clean as possible anyway.

McGwire did admit to using them a few years ago.

How can you ban them for life when they never tested positive? Convicted in court? Most of their careers it wasn't against the rules?

As I said it seems hypocritical but I'd be okay with lifetime bans for everyone.

You really want to clean up the game? Void their guaranteed contracts if they test positive.

McGwire never denied it publicly, A-Rod admitted to doing so a few years ago. Clemens/Bonds are the ones that haven't admitted to it.

McGwire at least strikes me as a decent person. Sosa had a bad rep around town as being a prima donna douche, but at least he made it look good for the fans. Clemons and Bonds, however, were just complete ****ing pricks.

However, being a ****ing prick isn't grounds for not making the HOF (kick the first guy inducted out if that ever happens), so if you don't admit one of them, you don't admit any of them.

And I'm good with that.
