  1. No sympathy from me. I like swift and stiff suspension. It’s the only way to rid the sport of cheaters.

  2. Bleed Blue Forever My sentiments Blue. I read where Justin Verlander said as much. They always have excuses, as did Gordon at first. Verlander mentioned that they should not be able to play while appealing their suspension. That they shouldn’t be still affecting games. Baseball is about statistics and cheaters like Bonds, Sosa and the like cheat players whom built and sustained the game for bums like themselves.
