I haven't had time to watch or read much about this. But won't 50 games allow them to come back for the postseason this year -- if their teams will allow it?
I wonder why they are waiting until Thursday to suspend Rodriguez.

211 games for A-Rod. So if I understand this correctly, that means the rest of this year and next. He could come back in 2015.
Here's what I don't understand. A-Rod is 38 years old. Say he appeals this suspension and keeps playing for the rest of this season as the process continues. He then gets suspended for 2014 but decides to retire after that. Does that not mean he would effectively get out of 50 games of the punishment?
He's above the call of weird however, so I would imagine none of this phases him in the least.
