Mlb MLB Seeking To Suspend 20 Players

"MLB is reportedly ready to drop the hammer on Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. According to ESPN’s Outside the Lines, Major League Baseball is getting ready to suspend A-Rod, Braun and as many as 20 players because of their connection to the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Miami. The suspensions could come within the next few weeks, but it’s unlikely the players’ union would accept them without a fight.

Outside the Lines is reporting that Biogenesis clinic founder Tony Bosch will testify against the players. The league is expected to argue that the players lied about their PED use and their connections to Bosch. “One source familiar with the case said the commissioner’s office might seek 100-game suspensions for Rodriguez, Braun and other players,” T.J. Quinn, Pedro Gomez and Mike Fish report. “The argument, the source said, is that the players’ connection to Bosch constitutes one offense, and previous statements to MLB officials denying any such connection or the use of PEDs constitute another.”

The league was previously reported as “going after” those players linked to the clinic, including Rodriguez, who may have tried to buy documents incriminating him. Other players who might face the wrath of the commissioner’s office include Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, Gio Gonzalez, Jhonny Peralta, Francisco Cervelli and Bartolo Colon."

Yeah, when I read a few of those names I thought "They must have received the Biodome PED's, not the Biogenesis one's"
