That's a relief. If he just lays low for a year, comes back calm, rested, and pleasant; he might get that second American chance. Doubtful he'll be able to play.

Terrible. Guy with no failed drug tests gets suspended for a year, the MLBPA lets MLB walk all over them (and has some if their members actually cheer it on) and the media thinks it's fine. I am really fed up of MLB and their thug tactics but if the players won't grow a pair and stand up then they deserve it.

[2] Oh, I don't much care about any of that. I'm just disappointed to be deprived of the absolute circus. That said, there is still hope A-Rod shows up to speing training and demands to train and play with the team.

[3] Even that's not happening. I'm more in line with [2] I don't mind a fifty game suspension for being involved with a sketchy clinic. A first offense is a first offense, you don't get to treble it, unless you're worried about employment considering that the last arbitrator who didn't vote Bud's way was fired.

Basically all this means is that Bud won the Douche Bowl in overtime. Now he's going to Disney World.
