With steroids and HGH being harder to detect since chemists work everyday to make a PED that can't be tested for, maybe the suspension for 1st time offenders should be 100 games not 50.

Also someone like JC Romero shouldn't get the same suspension for taking andro that he got at GNC, as Colon gets for taking a steroid. Anybody that thinks Mark McGwire gained 35 to 40 lbs of muscle on andro also believes that I could be Babe Ruth. If andro was that good all of us would of taken it!!

Flags don't raised unless testosterone levels are 4 times what they should be, if you are in your early 30s and your levels are 3 times over, then you should be an Olympic power lifter.

Sorry for the rant, but if baseball wants to clean it up then the Union must allow blood testing or the suspensions should be longer.

First offense: 1 full season.

Second offense: Go get a real job.

Punishment for PEDs should be:

First offense - permanent banishment from the game and from ANY professional sport.

Any questions?

Tap on the wrist. I say you catch em, you stand em up against the outfield wall and bring out the firing squad.

I would remind those calling for more severe penalties that in the case of MLB, the commissioner does not have unilateral power to set the penalties for violations. Such matters have to be negotiated with the MLBPA and they are unlikely to share your enthusiasm for professional extinction being the penalty for a first time use.

It is an unsatisfactory situation in terms of cleaning up the game, imagine if those incarcerated in state pens had a 50 % voice in determining the lengths of their sentences.

How about you get a 1 year suspension for a first offense and you immediately get reassigned to the Montreal Expos?
