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?
