life ban...
if they have enough evidence that shows he showed how and where and facilitated others into taking PEDs, then bye bye forever...

No way is it fair.

How would he really facilitate others taking them? And if he did, I am sure it was no different from what many players did, past and present. The guy is signed to a terrible contract, but the Yankees were dumb enough to agree to it, so they shouldn't be able to get out from under it.

If somehow the MLB thing sticks, and somehow the Yankees can void the deal, they should make them pay the money owed to A-Rod to charity. They don't deserve to benefit.

Without knowing the extent of the evidence that MLB has on A-Rod, it is hard to say whether the length of the suspension is fair.

What is somewhat confirmed is that he is a confirmed repeated PED user. This isn't the first time for him.

Thus, I believe more than a 50-game ban was certainly in line for him.
