I think he deserves a 214-game suspension. And really should never be allowed to suit up in a major league uniform again. The Yankees should also have to forfeit the 2009 World Series, since their best player that year was also the biggest cheater in the history of the game.

0 games. Baseball and its players' union agreed on a testing regime. To punish Rodriguez outside of it, in my opinion, weakens the entire construct.

I think you fail to understand what he is being suspended for.

Ryan Braun lied and lied and lied and lied and threw a drug collector under the bus. And also he lied some more. 65 games. With a positive test.

Melky Cabrera set up a fake website to hide his dealings. 50 games. With a positive test.

I have very little doubt that Rodriguez used. But baseball and its players' union agreed on how to deal with this. If they didn't draft an agreement that covers whatever it is Rodriguez did, either they didn't mean for the agreement to cover this or they didn't draft a good agreement. Not Rodriguez's problem.

I have no dog in this fight. I think it is ultimately bad for baseball if they punish people outside the system.

I think JFish is right, from a technical standpoint. I don't like the idea of a huge punishment coming for things not outlined explicitly in the agreement. But at the same time, ARod is a giant douche, and I certainly won't be bothered if he gets slapped for the rest of this year and next.

I'm more interested to see which players get rest-of-the-year suspensions and how it affects teams in contention. Peralta (DET) and Cruz (TEX) were both having great years.

You mean during the time Bud Selig, the players union, and everyone in baseball including the media not only knew about the roids issue but encouraged it because it sold tickets and helped land lucrative tv contracts?

Sorry but MLB is as responsible for the A-Rods as anybody. Not to mention Selig IMHO thinks by suspending a high profile player like A-Rod for this many games at the end of their collective careers will brush up his own bad image. To me it only makes Selig a worse commish than before and that is saying something because he has been garbage.

You know who really needs banned? Bud Selig with an apology to baseball fans everywhere for a lot of things but especially the steroid issue.


Don't believe this is a media play? QUICK type out the other 11 players getting suspension off the top of your head without looking as quickly as you can think of A-Rod's name......Exactly and there you have it.

Nelson Cruz, Peralta, maybe Gio Gonzales,

Now I can give to $hits about what happens to him I was just saying my two cents.

And yes Selig needs to go. Everyone will remember how his time was as the commish.

Selig has been an absolutely fabulous commissioner.

I wouldn't go so far as to call Selig a fabulous commissioner, but I do think he's been a fine commissioner I have no real problems with his reign.

One part of me thinks a lifetime ban would be appropriate, however, the Libertarian in me thinks that nothing should be done. If these players want to use roids and other PED's, let them, they are hurting no one but themselves. If you are going to punish A-Rod, nut up and do it in the best interests of baseball, and then banish every suspected juicer for the same reason.
