Such a circus, no one has handled it well and the press loves it. I think he's a moron, but I hope he does really well (during his appeal), so it'll be an even bigger circus.

Whatever happens, the yanks shouldn't be able to clear him off the books. They know 100% what they were getting themselves into with that contract and reaped the benefits of his performance.

Yes, the contract horrible, but I don't think they knew he was on anything. At the time he was promising he was clean (and still has never failed a drug test). Also the contract is filled w/ incentives for hitting HR milestones, which are obviously tainted w/ PED use....not sure they would have offered those incentives if they suspected he wasn't clean. Maybe if teams could void contracts if players get suspended, it would serve as more of a deterrent. If any "normal" employee got busted or failed a drug test, they could get fired, by should athletes be any different?

Ok, I can understand that they might not have known anything was going on. Regardless, they did reap the benefits, and while you can't go and take previous wins/stats/etc away, you can still punish the team for the unfair advantage by ensuring they are still on the hook for the contract.

And not that that money should go to A-Rod, he shouldn't get paid anything obviously, but it shouldn't just come off the books either.

Naaaaa, can't blame the teams....For many years there were no rules against it and no testing, and MLB certainly benefitted from the Mcguire/Sosa/Bonds HR derby....so if you're gonna blame teams, might as well just blame MLB as a whole.

Let NY keep paying for a old, busted, hated 3rd baseman. They signed the contract. If NY gets out of that bad contract they will spend that $100 million on someone else.

Why not? Buck Showalter brings up a great point. The Orioles were punished for having to play against someone for the past however many years who had an unfair advantage while the Yankees reaped the benefits. So not only are that it's fine for the other teams to be at a disadvantage, but in addition to that perk, you're advocating the Yankees are off the hook? Why should the receive any additional benefits other than those they got from a juiced player?

I don't think you can hold teams accountable....and honestly every team has probably had a player on PED's at some point. I think teams should be able to void contracts of players who fail drug tests, so no, I don't mind that they are "off the hook" for $$ while he's suspended....it's not like he's the only one that was doing it (and still, he never failed a drug test), and it's not like they are they only ones paying huge contracts. Buck showalter should just worry about his own team....wasn't he the rangers manager when a-rod was admittingly taking 'roids?

I bet the Yankees wonder why the A-Fraud's steroids never worked in the playoffs.

everyone gets lucky once. when you go back 2004 onward they were in the playoffs every years with him and he failed every time. it got so bad he once played a series against the Red Sox, got a single, came back to the dugout and said to Jason Giambi "I got a hit!"
Giambi replied "You got a single with no one base."

Thumbs down

How do you think I feel look at my avatar. Just remember I was AROD long before he was even born. What about McQwire, Sosa and the rest of those idiots. I love baseball but I think they get paid way to much money. Most sports are unaffordable for most families.

Now that he has been caught doing something He knew was illegal , I think he is a whinny ass baby, pointing fingers at everyone else.

Now they say he leaked info on Ryan Braun. The rest of the league is going to be all over his ass now that he broke the code.

When you have a code, nothing, should break it.
