This is stupid.

Why? He has told the press all along - quite rightly - that this is an MLB issue that he has no control or influence over. Answering any question could only serve to get him in trouble. He has made his point now, and presumably the press will cease asking him questions about decisions made by Peralta, his legal representation, and MLB.

I haven't seen a player contract before, so I'm not sure, but it may not be this simple. A contract suspension, in my mind, Stays the entire contract for the specified period of time (or I guess indefinately, depending on the suspension). That should affect all terms of the contract.

I would look at it differently, if it was a suspension with pay. Because then you can make the case that MLB is making good on their end of the contract, and the player is simply being punished by not being allowed to play, but the contract would still clearly be in force. At the point in which you suspend without pay, neither party to the agreement is upholding the terms of the contract. They have effectively suspended the contract.

I'll mention it again, I don't expect Cruz or Peralta to play during their suspensions. But I still find it interesting.

How a suspension will be dealt with in terms of a player's contract is covered in the CBA. The contract is not suspended or affected at all really. The years continue to come off and the player neither plays nor is paid while he is suspended.

Maybe this has already been posted but 8 of the 12 suspended today are from the Dominican Republic. 89 of the 856 players on opening day rosters were from the Dominican Republic.

McLain last week in Lakeland was emphatic about PED's not unusual in pro ball. His comment is understandable in light of that. I wish I recalled his exact quote. Something that began with aging players either using or considering using PED's. Also he has lost a lot of weight since that photo.

I don't defend "cheaters". I just don't care that much because they aren't cheating me. They are cheating other players, so they are the ones who should be upset. Whether or not a player takes steroids makes for interesting discussion sometimes, but it doesn't change the game for me.

I don't know if I wrote this in the other thread or not because I've been working so much lately everything is blending together....I meant to write it though: I need you to stop posting my opinions before I come on the board to post my opinions. This is becoming absurd. Guess I'll just +1 this post too.

Oh, I will add that I don't personally see steroid use as cheating in its worse possible application. I see steroid use as a minor infraction, in my mind comparable to being the "parking violation" of sports offenses: Annoying, rude, unsportsmanlike, but not the worst thing in the World. When people talk about steroids, they speak of it as if players were cutting directly from first base to third every time they played over the course of their career, like it was a brand of cheating that fundamentally altered the game of baseball itself. That's simply not the way I perceive it.

I really don't see what's relevant about that.

It just made me wonder if there was anyone behind the scenes from the DR baseball world who might have influenced/encouraged them.

DD told them specifically that Leyland would not take any JP questions

Then I am on skips side....like that is a shocker to anyone.

Sox fans didn't even boo A-rod. Or, if they did, there weren't enough White Sox fans for boos to register on the CSN microphones.

Best way to annoy an attention seeker when he is STARVING for attention is to ignore him, but I am sure there were just not enough there.

It is not specifically covered in the CBA. I've checked. There is room to discipline for just cause, and a grievance procedure. But at no point does it address the fact that if no party is adhering to the contract, that the contract remains in force. Easily one could argue that it is not, or that it has been Stayed, pending the suspension.

I also read the CBA regarding 'suspensions' and could not find a direct chapter regarding this kind of suspension. I am also guessing each individual contract has some kind of language in it regarding this issue. I copied and pasted a section of the CBA which was close to what I was looking for, but not exactly it.

I think it is something interesting to consider when talking about if you would want him back or not. If he was sitting on the couch for 50 games I would not want him back at all, but if he played for some team over seas/in the Dominican etc somewhere (maybe without pay...which MAY circumvent the contract) and you can see that he has stayed in game shape I would STRONGLY consider bringing him back.

A-Rod got booed roundly last night.

He sure did. I saw his third at-bat (I think it was third) and the boobirds were out in droves.

I also read Berenstain Bears to try and find the answers we're looking for. Brother Bear thought he knew the answer but then got stuck in the briar patch. Honestly now that i've finished, i'm really missing Papa Bear.

If you really want to destroy the integrity of the game, erasing wins and statistics would be a great place to start.

Yes, it wouldn't be surprising if players from DR - or Venezuela or Cuba or South Korea or what have you - networked with one another.

I don't consider networking to be the same as possibly exploiting someone. Anyway, I just thought it was an odd result.

so all these stats with "asterisks" that nobody gives any credit to doesn't do that already?

The stats are almost meaningless already, look at the numbers of these guys getting less than 25% votes to the hall, if A-rod had 245 homeruns right now because they erased 400 of them (I didn't look up the actual #) at least when it was time to get in the hall, there's reason to not let them in besides opinions.
