    As an arrogant cheater, he deserved far worse. Unfortunately this slime bag has already stated that hes gonna sue to fight any ban that was handed down.

    Good riddance.

    I think it was too much.

    Sure I think he personally deserves more, but they already see a standard and they will have to stick by it.

    Clearly hey let steroids going far too long and he will be the big name example or scapegoat.

    Anyone hear Kruk's comments on it? Wow, you can tell he's not a fan. Told him to shut up, go away and just retire now.

    Hate the guy, but he's never tested positive for anything. Thus, I think the punishment is harsh, although they are arguing the punishment isn't for usage but for involvement and aiding and abetting.

    Kind of torn between no punishment or toss him forever...it's weird place to be!

    PS...other players like "Shoe-less" Joe Jackson received lifetime bans, so this isn't the longest ban ever.

    It really does seem pretty harsh because he hasn't ever tested positive. It just looks like they wanted to make an example and that was what was done but makes them look desperate.

    IMO I don't think it makes them look desperate. It shows these players that even if you use these masking agents and fool the tests you still won't get away with it. I think it was a big win for baseball.

    Silly Elizabeth2, google "Shoeless" Joe Jackson. He was suspended for life supposedly losing on purpose in the White Sox scandal. It's okay, I understand...I guess your trying to be cute saying longest suspension for this type of incident?

    Silly Cracked.... Semantics... There is a difference between banned for life and suspended for a season. No one has been suspended for a season before... This is also the longest suspension ever meted by MLB.
