Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig is planning to implement a lifetime ban on Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Seems Rodriguez is the center of the Biogenesis scandal, due to his not only taking PEDs but recruiting other athletes into their program.
MLB will contend that, in addition to lying about performance-enhancing drug use, Rodriguez lied to MLB officials while attempting to sabotage their investigation
None of that’s good.
BSP never really took a liking to Rodriguez. He always seemed distant, aloof. Now it appears he’s a cheater and had been a cheater for a long time. This calls into question his entire stat line. Barry Bonds at least was a Hall-of-Famer before doing steroids. We have no idea how good Rodriguez really was, since we don’t know when he really started.
I don’t want to see him banned for life. A-Roid wasn’t the greatest personality but he could play. I just want to see him “clean”
