MLB Preparing Possible Lifetime Ban for Alex Rodriguez

Jul 31 2013, 10:32pm CDT | by

Major League Baseball is reportedly preparing a possible lifetime ban for beleaguered New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez while suspending eight others for 50 games due to their alleged involvement in the Biogenesis scandal.

Could we have possibly seen the last of Alex Rodriguez?

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is reportedly preparing a lifetime ban for Rodriguez while suspending eight other major leaguers for their alleged involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, per USA Today's Bog Nightengale. 

Nightengale cited two sources who know about the situation and were not allowed to go out in the open since no formal announcement has been made. 

Rodriguez, the Yankees' third baseman, is planning to appeal whatever disciplinary measure is imposed on him, per his attorney, David Cornwell. The other players are expected to receive 50-game suspensions with most of them reportedly having no plans to protest. 

The Yankees organization expects Rodriguez to be accused of recruiting other players to Biogenesis, attempting to obstruct MLB's investigation and not being truthful in the past. 

The obtruction accusation is supported by ESPN reporter T.J. Quinn.

"It is believed by baseball, at least, that he actively obstructed this investigation. They have looked into charges that he tampered with witnesses, that he tried to get documents, possibly have them destroyed. If they've got the evidence to back that up, that adds a whole other element to this case."

Former MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent is all for Selig coming down hard on any guilty player.  

"I hope he does it. It's right for baseball. The harder he comes down, the better it is for baseball." 

The lifetime ban remains unclear as of this point. Sports Illustrated even reported the possibility of arbitrator Fredric Horowitz shortening the ban to 200 games. A parallel the report came up with was the initial lifetime ban for pitcher Steve Howe back in 1992 which was eventually reduced to 119 games. 

Whatever happens, Rodriguez says he's not giving up, per Sports Illustrated via CBS News.

"I'm not giving up. I have tremendous faith, and hopefully there's a couple more chapters to this book, and hopefully there's a happy ending somewhere."

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
