2013-08-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)If A-Rod popped positive, he serves 50 games. He gets "caught" via a sketchy investigation with evidence from sketchy sources and they threaten to ban him for life, then ban him for more than a season. They criticize him in part for admitting to doing PEDs in 2002-2003, but he never tested positive (and they criticize people for lying, so . . .). Braun got caught but appealed on a technicality and won, so now he serves his 50 game suspension plus 15 games for what exactly? How does your "double jeopardy" analogy handle that? The JDA says he wins the appeal and then it is over, right? So the "winners" here are the players who got caught and already served their suspensions, like Melky and Colon. I am not an A-Rod fan, but I guess I am an apologist because if I were an arbitrator I would say this evidence was equivalent to his first positive test and give him 50 games. The "but he lied!" argument is silly; all such players are lying through omission by taking PEDs until they test positive. Finally, PED suspensions need to be 1/3rd as long as DUI suspensions. As usual, MLB is ignoring the more serious problem.
(Karl from Chicago)
This is the key issue that has to be addressed: The JDA details what happens when a player tests positive, but the parameters around non-analytical positives are ambiguous, subjective, open to interpretation, and negotiated, either in advance of the arbitrator, or with him in the mix. Steve Howe comes to mind. He was banned for life, and then the arbitrator knocked his suspension down to 119 games. The drug policy has to be addressed about this. Itís more important than increasing penalties, it speaks to how the league and MLBPA see things and that when itís looked at both sides render the same decision because itís clearly outlined in the drug agreement. Thereís additional games being added due to lying or obstructing investigations. Braunís extra 15 games was around that as part of his suspension. Technically, itís seen as his first suspension, with additional games down from 100 for the lying, etc. I hate it. No one knows what Selig and the league will pull out of their hat. Make it clear. Put it in writing. In doing all of this itís added to the circus. (Maury Brown About Biogenesis and Business)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Care to entertain why Josh Hamilton's "story" is a feel-good story? Seriously, we shouldn't flaunt a former full-fledged drug addict.
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
Because he didn't have to come back. He could have just remained an addict and squandered all his abilities on his disease. Anyone who gets their life under control is alright with me. Would you have him wear a scarlet A for Addict on his chest for the rest of his life? Redemption, I think, is something that we should always "flaunt." Look at the healing power of baseball. And just to give you a sense of HOW unusual it is, since I've been thinking about the 1980s, a lot of ballplayers from that period who had drug problems ended up dead - Rod Scurry, Alan Wiggins, Eric Show, Steve Howe - Hamilton's story had a pretty big alternative ending, and it wasn't pretty. (Steven Goldman)
