Bud Selig Could and Should Suspend Players!


According to various news service reports, Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is mulling the possibility of handing down suspensions for the use of Steroids and HGH, even prior to the changes in rules. This is the opportunity to use the "Best Interest of Baseball" clause that the commissioner's office has used in the past. Look, its time that Bud Selig admit that he and baseball did not do enough, but if evidence comes forward like it has concerning Gary Matthews Jr., Paul Byrd, and Rick Ankiel, then he will suspend them accordingly. Look, we all wish this was behind us as fans, but it is NOT! NFL Commish Roger Goddell has taken a tough stance even though it was overlooked by his predecessor. I know, I know. You are saying, "Its Selig's fault that he didn't do anything about it!" Right, but if evidence comes out that players were cheating and he does nothing to those current players, he would be damaging the game further. Act now and act tough! Stop the embarrassment of those being caught and send a clear message that if you cheat or have cheated then you will be punished!
