One down. How many to go?
Brewers superstar Ryan Braun was the first victim of Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis of America clinic, as the league suspended him on Friday for the remainder of the season without pay.
Now the focus has shifted to Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
The evidence against the 14-time All-Star is ”far beyond” what the league had against Braun, according to ESPN.com. However, the Yankees don’t expect Rodriguez to be suspended immediately, sources told the website.
ESPN.com is also reporting that, according to sources, Rodriguez could very likely face a suspension similar to Braun’s.
An MLB source told CBS Evening News’ Jim Axelrod, however, that the five-time American League home-run champion could be looking at a lifetime ban.
So will the three-time American League MVP cut a deal with the league?
“My understanding is he’s trying to make a deal,” a source told the website. “But I don’t think it’s going to happen (Monday).”

On the heels of MLB suspending Ryan Braun for the rest of the season, it seems that Alex Rodriguez has realized that Bud Selig is pretty serious about this Biogenesis case. So serious that Braun’s suspension could’ve been much worse if he hadn’t struck a deal with MLB to publicly admit his wrongdoing in exchange for a lighter suspension.With this information in hand, Alex Rodriguez...

Major League Baseball suspended Alex Rodriguez on Monday for the rest of this season and all of the 2014 season for violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program and the Basic Agreement.
The suspension is based on findings in its investigation of the Biogenesis clinic.
The statement from Commissioner Bud Selig's office said:
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez didn't get the day off Sunday because of the slump he's in at the plate, but the All-Star is battling another injury.
Gomez is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against Miami with a sore right elbow, adding to the nagging left shoulder and thumb injuries he's battled over the past few weeks.
After a year and a half, the Ryan Braun debacle has finally been settled, with the Brewers slugger-turned-pariah suspended for the final 65 games of the 2013 season. It’s a slap on Braun’s bum thumb. The Brewers are in last place and Braun had missed much of the last few weeks, and was far less than 100 percent when in the lineup.
Had Braun somehow escaped discipline for the...

It’s hard to be a baseball fan today. America’s past time has past its time and its a self-inflicted wound.
Performance Enhancing Drugs are overshadowing the season. Since The Miami Times exposed Biogenesis as a South Florida drug store catering to some of Major League Baseball’s biggest names, we have been waiting for suspensions to be handed down.
The Brewers’ Ryan Braun...
Commissioner Bud Selig defended baseball's fight against performance-enhancing drugs on Wednesday, declining to discuss the recent suspension of Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun or whether other stars will also face penalties.
Braun was suspended for the rest of the season Monday, a total of 65 games, for violating baseball's anti-drug policy. He is the first player to be punished...
