Please note, I'm not condoning what he did, and am glad that he's not going to win the batting title, but I don't see why MLB would allow this and not punish other cheaters who benefited from PED use.
I posted before about this and that's to just accept PEDs as part of the game, as part of the competition and just make whatever distinctions or separations you want in the record books between the different eras. Of course that means taking more responsibility in not making these players out to be gods and role models, but that's on us to begin with anyway, whether they would follow through with an idea like that or not.
