MLB wants Alex Rodriquez out of Baseball badly. So badly they are making up rules as they go along to get rid of ARod. The Biogensis story is bad enough if this is to be believed on face value. MLB had better be right and have evidence on ARod and Ryan Braun that is undisputable, otherwise this will get ugly and it could result in MLB being sued in return.
The latest update that was thrown around earlier was that MLB will suspend ARod 150 games. Basically doing the Yankees a big favor by getting him out of that huge contract that has close to 100 million left. Except one problem… The CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) calls for a first time offense for 50 games. ARod has never failed a drug test, yes he has admitted to using steroids as a Texas Rangers, yes there are suspicions that he has continued to use during his time with the Yankees. But there is no proof and no failed test. So how can MLB suspend someone 150 games? I am not saying that Alex Rodriquez is innocent or that I am a big fan of his because I am not, but fair is fair. I know Bud Selig is trying to clean up his sport before he rides off into the sunset, but you can’t leak out to the media that you are going to suspend him for 150 games when you don’t have at least 2 failed steroid test, right now Selig doesn’t even have one failed test on ARod. Now Arod may know how tio cheat the test, maybe they have him on video, but what ever the case MLB in it’s rush to judgement has to do this right otherwise this will could and will result in a lawsuit and MLB will be looking foolish.
If ARod is foolish enough to keep tempting fate by putting himself in harm’s way by being associated with the Biogenesis clinic, fine but do it right. He knows he is being watched, and yet he dares you to come after him. But do it right. 150 games is going to make you look foolish instead of him. But we will wait and see what develops, in the meantime you did a failed test with Ryan Braum maybe you should start with him and give him the punish he deserved the last time, oops I forgot you can’t because he got off on a technicality. See Bud even when you catch them you don’t catch them. Shame on you.
