According to USA Today, Bud Selig is considering suspending Alex Rodriguez for admitting steroid use in 2003.
I don't get it. This guy is the commissioner of baseball?
A-Rod failed the test in 2003. If he was going to be suspended, he would have been suspended then. But he wasn't. You know why?
BECAUSE IN 2003 THERE WAS NO PENALTY FOR USING STEROIDS!!!
How has this tiny detail slipped Bud's mind? Seriously. You can't punish someone now for doing something that wasn't illegal at the time. A-Rod did not admit to using steroids once it was made punishable, and there is no evidence to say he did.
In fact, he has been tested at least once since the penalty was enacted, and he passed. So how on earth can Selig attempt to suspend the guy?
Naturally, any suspension would be challenged by the MLBPA, and the appeal should be won easily. In the meantime, Selig should use some of his monstrous salary to have his head examined.
