MLBPA Members Want To Kick Alex Rodriguez Out

On January 13, 40 members of the MLB Players Association met on a conference call and the topic was Alex Rodriguez and trying to oust him from the union. The quotes coming from Yahoo Sports and Jeff Passan and Tim Brown are absolutely disgusting. See below and see the original article HERE:

"We wanted to get on this call and not let him back. 'This is our game and we don't want you in it."'

[Alex]  "needs to be scared of coming back and facing people he sued."

I am going to try and stay in the middle here but come on, really? The players association members want to kick Alex out of the union? Why not just kick him out of baseball? That's called collusion, something that is illegal in the game of baseball. I wonder why the MLBPA couldn't kick him out, by their own words they could not do it legally. I wonder if this has more to do with the recent lawsuit against the MLBPA for their lack of support in his Biogenesis appeal and less to do with his "repeated PED use" that has never caused him to fail a test. I hate to say witch hunt, it's not a witch hunt, it's just a petty back and forth game going on and it's giving the game and everyone involved, including the fans, a bad name.
