Biogenesis Suspensions This Week

According to Joel Sherman and Ken Davidoff of the NY Post, MLB could hand down suspensions due to the Biogenesis investigation this week.

MLB is trying to hand down the 50-game suspensions so that they can be served this season, an incentive for players not to appeal them, so they could be around for the entire 2014 season.

As for Alex Rodriguez, who I'm personally tired of, his suspension could not only last for the remainder of this season, but extend all the way through the 2014 season as well. ARod's representatives apparently met with MLB officials to gauge the potential penalties to be handed down to Alex.

It is believed that due to Alex being a user, along with obstructing the case, that he will be hit with the larger penalty. It's been said that Bud Selig may seek a permanent banishment from the game, but that is not likely to stick since Alex is a first time offender... at least according to MLB rules (his usage in 2003 was before MLB put rules in place against PED usage).
