Never let it be questioned the power, force and ultimately, the effect that the powers that be of MLB can wield. In the absence of any evidence other than that of a drug dealer (MLB’s words, not mine) MLB has ended the season of Ryan Braun and Everth Cabrera‘s season is reported to effectively be over as of this weekend. Cabrera’s 50 game suspension was first reported by Jon Heyman and later it was reported by Bernie Wilson via Twitter that it would occur this weekend.
It appears unlikely at this point that Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal or Bartolo Colon of Oakland will serve anytime as they have already been suspended previously. Per Heyman’s article it appears that most players are cutting deals with MLB. In Braun’...

Friday has come and gone, and with it Arod hasn’t been banned in perpetuity, nor has he even been suspended. Rodriguez spoke to the media after a rehab game, in which he homered on Friday and was all too candid.

Play with fire and you get burned.
MLB was none too please with the stunt Arod pulled after his minor league game on Friday where he addressed the media. As reported earlier, Arod held very little back and spoke openly that many people were quote ‘creating ways’ to cancel his contract. In the process Arod not only pissed off the Yankees but Major League Baseball and now they’re...
Yankees are ready to exhale the second MLB delivers the death blow.
If Biogenesis-gate has taught us one all important thing it’s that Major League Baseball has finally grown a back bone and isn’t playing around when it comes to players and performance enhancing drugs.

The New York Yankees may be the biggest winners when Major League Baseball inevitably announces that it has suspended Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod, who has two bad hips and a quad that may or may not be lame, is currently playing under one of the worst contracts in all of sports. The Yankees still owe him [...]
Major League Baseball is threatening to kick Alex Rodriguez out
of the game for life unless the New York Yankees star agrees not to
fight a lengthy suspension for his role in baseball's latest drug
scandal, according to a person familiar with the discussions.
The longer Alex Rodriguez could be suspended the more it could help the New York Yankees. And that infuriates Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter.
