We need to cleanse the sport of baseball. Alex has lied to the public multiple times about his use of PED's. He should be banned for life because because he lied about stopping. He never stopped!!! He has a bunch of records,two MVP's,a world series,and Playoff MVP.Because Of PED's. That is my point I dare someone to argue.

Steroids have been a problem in the MLB for over fifteen years now and will probably never go away. With professional sports so competitive it is absurd to think athletes wouldn't do whatever they could to make themselves stronger. Baseball cannot ban a-rod for life because they would have to ban everyone else that took steroids in the MLB for life. To ban A-Rod for life would send a message to all athletes and children that it is ok to cheat as long as you don't lie about it when caught.

I sorry but your absolutely wrong. Banning A-rod is perfect for MLB. This send a message to players saying don't cheat or we will get rid of you. The reason A-rod should be banned is because ESPN says that he lead the biogenesis situation and tried to recruit more people for it. This is message to upcoming players don't cheat or your screwed.

Their is no evidence that A-rod tried to recruit anyone to the biogenesis of America. Allegations where made that a-rod may have released information about 12 other MLB players buying PEDs from the same clinic which when asked he denied. With 12 players getting 50 game suspension for steroids this month why should A-rods be so banned for life. The only reason they are threatening A-Rod is because he is such a big name athlete.

Where have you been? They have phone calls,emails and recorded conversations. There is a bunch a proof stating that he did in fact recruit others.There is more proof on A-rod than anyone else in the Biogenesis case.

You have no idea what kind of evidence they have because none of it is public yet. MLB'S biggest problem with A-rod is that this is the second time he was caught taking steroids and lied about it. The fact is a total of thirteen Mlb players got caught getting steroids from the clinic within one week. How many others do you think have taken PEDs in their career. A-Rod should not banned for life for taking PEDs because to many other people in baseball could be banned for the same reason.
