Article XI Section A1b of the MLB’s collective bargaining agreement is very clear:
“…a complaint which involves action taken with respect to a Player or Players by the Commissioner involving the preservation of the integrity of, or the maintenance of public confidence in, the game of baseball.”
What Alex Rodriguez has done, and is continuing to do, is tarnish the game of baseball. In 2009 he admitted to using PED’s while with Texas from 2001-2003. He has denied using them since. Baseball has been investigating that Rodriguez, and other players, received PED’s from Biogenesis, a closed anti-aging agency in Florida.
While he hasn’t tested positive, he has lied numerous times to MLB about his connections with Tony Bosch, the founder of Biogenesis. Testing positive would almost have been better for A-Rod. At least then we would have a definitive answer as to what is going on. Not only has he lied, he has been accused of recruiting fellow major leaguers to visit Biogenesis and pick up the HGH.
Part of A-Rod’s problem is how nonchalant he has been. His postseason performance in the 2012 Playoffs was laughable at best. Instead of trying to hit homeruns at the plate, he was swinging and missing with ladies in the crowd.
Major League Baseball needs a poster boy for their fight against steroids. They’ve obviously done something right, as pitching has dominated baseball for a couple of seasons now. If Rodriguez hasn’t learned anything from fellow Yankee Derek Jeter (which he hasn’t) then he needs to learn from fellow controversial player Ryan Braun. Braun took a deal when he realized when MLB had against him.
I don’t see any way that he should touch a professional baseball diamond until 2015. By then he’ll be healthy and able to DH for a few years before retiring. I want a fair sentence. But I do not want a lifetime ban. Why? Because the New York Yankees should not be allowed to get out of A-Rod’s remaining contract.
I called for the lifetime ban, expecting it to be argued down to a suspension through next season. But as it turns out, that was the ruling handed down. Which he is appealing, of course. Time will tell where this saga goes but one thing is for sure: The Yankees are 4th in the AL East and sure would love to put all of this behind them.
