Obviously, these guys are going to be suspended. But there will be an appeals process and MLB isn't going to be the judge and jury.
Nuns and choirboys rarely testify in court.
As long as his testimony matches up with the hard evidence, it'll be hard not to believe him.
Personally, I think the union won't fight for these guys. Sure there will be an appeal process for all of them, but the union has standing orders from its members to crack down hard on offenders. Recently the union proposed stiffer penelties for offenders.
Everyone wants these guys caught and punished as severly as possible... well, everyone except these guys and their agents.
