Major Bans Imminent from Major League Baseball
By now you may have caught wind of the news that MLB officials have come to an agreement with Tony Bosch, founder of Biogenesis of America, to provide information that could result in 50- and 100-game suspensions for dozens of professional ballplayers.
You can find the details at ESPN’s Outside the Lines.
As you know, this isn’t really a “news” site, but this news is too big to ignore, and I’d like to hear your opinion of the latest development in this story. Personally, I’m skeptical that MLB will get away with suspending people like Ryan Braun for 100 games; somehow, some way, MLBPA will find a way to convince a judge that such a suspension is illegal. At the same time, I wonder if this debacle — and how it is handled — will adversely affect the current lovefest between the owners and the player’s union.
Sound off …
