Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun Others Should be Banned, Not Suspended
We all knew it was coming — we just didn’t know when. The players linked to the Biogenesis Clinic, which reportedly supplied them with PEDs, will be suspended after the MLB All-Star break. Sluggers Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez headline the list of players that could total up to 22. In other words, two-thirds of the teams in Major League Baseball are likely to be without a player for a long time.
The original reports back before the season began stated the players involved might be suspended for 100 games, the consequence for a second-time PED offender. MLB says that lying about their involvement constitutes as a first offense, so Braun, A-Rod and the likes of Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera, Jhonny Peralta and many others could be suspended for the remainder of this season, meaning many teams will go into the playoffs without star sluggers.
Say what you want about the “harsh” punishment, but if these guys truly took performance-enhancing drugs and lied about it, then it wouldn’t be a stretch to ban them from baseball forever. That’s especially true for roid-heads like A-Rod, whose entire careers are frauds, and that could be the case for a lot of other players once this investigation is over. Get them out of here because we want to see a clean game.
