The 2013 MLB season gave us plenty of memorable moments, but it also saw another chapter in the Steroid Era play out, as the Biogenesis scandal led to the suspension of 13 players.
While 12 of those players have already served their suspension and can now start working towards putting the controversy behind them, Alex Rodriguez played out the 2013 season while appealing what was initially a 211-game suspension.
On Jan. 11, an arbitrator upheld the suspension, ruling that Rodriguez would remain suspended through the end of the 2014 season. Due to his playing under appeal, the suspension actually wound up being reduced from 211 games to 162 games, but that was still far longer than any of the other bans that other players received.
Rodriguez plans to take his appeal to federal court in a lawsuit, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, but for the most part, the ramifications of the scandal are now clear.
So who are the biggest winners and losers now that the dust has settled on Biogenesis?
