    They know the rules. The penalty should be the same for everyone & it should be enforced or why bother having rules? Even my teens understand that & follow the rules. ;o)

    I think performance enhancing drugs are more of a norm than an anomaly.

    If they haven't actually tested positive then they should be allowed to play. Also, MLB should allow all steroids, then every player would be like the hulk and there would be more home runs. MLB also needs cheerleaders and instant replay.

    anybody remember Pete Rose and what happened to him when he broke the rules? I think the same should happened to every one that breaks the rules, they are there for a reason

    I bet Sammy Sosa took the drugs too, and I am a Cubs fan.

    If baseball voided the contracts of these over payed millionaires that attempt to cheat,most would not take substances that are banned.

    Saw his interview last night on the news...never heard someone say so much and make so little sense!

    No they should not be banned for life. It they were the owners could get rid of them. This way they have to pay them and it doesn't free up the money to go to a new talent. The Owners and coaches know they are taking them. It's the gamble they take and some have lost. This way they are both punished, as it should be.

    I think for the ridiculous amounts of money these athletes are being paid for, the least they could do is stay off the drugs. Not only should they be banned, but suspended immediately upon the results testing positive for drug enhancements.

    The rules have to be stiffer because the financial rewards are too great to cheat. It's really good to see many of today's young stars speak out against PEDs, so the Players Union will probably tighten up the punishments this winter with the owners.

    I hate A-Rod but I think that a lifetime ban would be out of line in this case. You cannot change the consequences after the fact. However, baseball and all other professional sports should adopt a zero tolerance policy from here on out.
