Biogenesis Suspensions This

There are strong indications that MLB will
announce all the suspensions in the
Biogenesis case this week, according to Joel
Sherman and Ken Davidoff of the New York
Post . It is believed MLB wants to make the
suspensions formal this week so that first-
time offenders can serve a 50 game
suspension inside of the 2013 season. That,
in theory, would give players incentive not to
appeal the decision and enter 2014 with a
In the case of Alex Rodriguez , he could be hit
with a suspension that will sideline him for
the rest of this season and all of 2014.
Rodriguez's representatives met with MLB
officials in the past few days in what was
likely an effort to better gauge the potential
penalties coming his way.
His suspension will be substantial as MLB
believes the combination of being a user and
obstructing the case demands a much stiffer
penalty than what was given to Ryan Braun .
It is even possible that Bud Selig could ask
for permanent banishment, though it would
be hard to convince an arbitrator, if
Rodriguez appeals, that his first suspension
should be for life.
