    Suspensions expected this week

    Major League Baseball likely will announce all the remaining suspensions resulting from its investigation into Biogenesis this week, according to the New York Post.

    Among the announced punishments could be one banning New York Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez for the rest of this season and next season, the newspaper reports. A-Rod hasn't played a major league game yet in 2013 following offseason hip surgery.

    rumor down here is that MLB plans on giving Arod 150 games.  50 for 1st violation + 100 for second violation.  other speculation is that they would give lifetime knowing he would appeal and settle on 150.  I dont think they will do that because he can play while the appeal process occurs.  meaning he would play for the yankees this season and there is no way the NYY want that to happen.

    Sorry if this has been posted already:

    According to the New York Daily News, MLB officials “hope to know by Monday” if Alex Rodriguez will accept a deal for his role in the Biogenesis case.
    That deal, according to various reports, would leave A-Rod with a suspension that covers the remainder of the 2013 season and all of 2014. If the veteran third baseman does not accept that sentence and instead tries to fight for something lesser, he could wind up with a lifetime ban. Accepting MLB’s offer would allow Rodriguez to keep a large majority of the $100-or-so million that he is still owed from the Yankees.

    i hear that A-roid has been hiring lawyers, private investigators and a whole entourage to get any and all information needed to fight the MLB. i truly believe he won't settle for the 150+ games(suspended through 2014) and fight until the bitter end. and why not? it's not like braun where he has years and years of playing time ahead of him. he's on the back 9. being suspended through 2014 is essentially a lifetime ban in his case. Not sure he would even want to come back after sitting for 2 years. If that does end up being the case then my prediction is that the yankees buy out the last 3 years of his deal (15-17) and both parties move on.

    As wealthy as Rodriguez is, $100 million would be a lot of money to gamble away. If he accepts the plea deal, he still gets paid his salary for 2015 and beyond. If he turns it down and loses, he doesn't get paid a penny. The Yankees are probably praying that he appeals. If he gets the lifetime ban, they're off the hook financially.

    it's also been rumored that teams may go after these players in court and sue them for "damaging their brand". Not sure if that holds water in court. Too bad our resident clown lawyer is on hiatus.

    espn and ap say arod will be suspended under the labor agreement rather than the drug agreement so that he may not play during his appeal.

    MLB reportedly threatens to permanently ban Alex Rodriguez

     

     By KEVIN BAXTER

     

    Los Angeles Times

     

    Major League Baseball reportedly has evidence that proves Alex Rodriguez used banned performance-enhancing substances and has offered the New York Yankees third baseman a deal that could salvage the final $61 million of his contract while effectively ending his career.

    Baseball officials have told Rodriguez they are preparing to suspend him, without pay, for the remainder of the 2013 season and all of 2014, the New York Daily News was first to report. If he accepts the suspension without appeal, he would be eligible to return in 2015. But if he fights the penalty, the Daily News said, baseball would seek a lifetime ban.

    An answer from Rodriguez, who had earlier promised to fight any suspension, is expected soon.

    Rodriguez is one of about 20 major league players who are being investigated for their involvement with Biogenesis, a now-shuttered anti-aging clinic in South Florida. Tony Bosch, the former director of the clinic, is participating in the probe and has reportedly provided MLB investigators with logs, notes, receipts, phone records and other information that persuaded the Milwaukee Brewers' Ryan Braun to accept a 65-game ban without appeal last week.

    Rodriguez hasn't played for the Yankees this year after undergoing off-season hip surgery, and for him and the Yankees the threat of a suspension is now all about money. If Rodriguez decides to fight MLB, he would continue to receive the rest of the $28 million he is owed this season. And if prevails in his appeal, he would lose nothing.

    But if he is hit with a lifetime ban, he would not only lose the $25 million he is to be paid next season but also the $61 million due him in the final three years of the 10-year contract he signed with the Yankees in 2007.

    Given Rodriguez's age and recent health problems-he is 38 and has played more than 124 games only once since 2008 - even a ban that ends after the 2014 season would likely mean Rodriguez would never play again.

    Rodriguez could also be put on baseball's permanently-unable-to-perform list, at which point there would be negotiations among his legal team, the Yankees and both sides' insurance companies over a settlement that would pay him the balance of his contract.

    Aside from the drug agreement, there is no automatic stay for suspensions under baseball’s labor contract. Rodriguez could be punished under Article XII B of the Basic Agreement, which states: “Players may be disciplined for just cause for conduct that is materially detrimental or materially prejudicial to the best interests of baseball including, but not limited to, engaging in conduct in violation of federal, state or local law.”

    Re: Suspensions expected this week

     

    In regard to Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, commissioner Bud Selig is prepared to bypass the grievance procedure in the collectively-bargained joint drug agreement, disciplining A-Rod under the “integrity of the game” clause Article XI, Section A1b, according to Teri Thompson, Bill Madden, Nathaniel Vinton, and Michael O’Keefe of the New York Daily News. Under that scenario, only Selig himself would hear an appeal.

     

    FanGraphs’ Wendy Thurm wrote about this possibility several weeks ago, calling it Selig’s “nuclear option.” Selig’s decision would be final, and could not be further appealed to an arbitrator or court.

     

    MLB will reportedly announce the Biogenesis suspensions this week. It’s also been reported that if Rodriguez, approaching his season debut after hip surgery and a quad injury, does not accept a suspension running through 2014, MLB may attempt to ban him for life.

    Re: Suspensions expected this week

    from what i hear Baseball is attempting the lifetime ban because A-roid tampered with MLBs investigation. As far as the specifics of that allegation go i have no clue. The only thing i heard was that he tried buying the documents that MLB eventually got ahold of.

    If he was smart, he would take the ban through 2014 and keep his 60M golden parachute. If he Fights MLB like he says he will then he could lose out on his whole contract AND have all of his dirty laundry aired through the national media as the hearing proceeds. Look at Braun, he took the deal and slinked away while giving a cookie cutter statement that didn't give any insight to what he actually did wrong. If Braun fought it we would be hearing about what he exactly took, how much and for how long etc.

    Of course, A-roid has never been known for being smart now has he?

    Some say a storm is coming, Some say the end is near.

    Some think it's all so hazy, I think it's all so clear.

    Some say they have the answers, some say they know the truth.

    Some people live in question, some people have no clue.

    If there was no tomorrow, if there was just today.

    would you make different choices? or would you stay the same?
