The punishments for any this kind of discipline is not covered in the usual 50, 100 game suspensions and is subject to the Commissioner's discretion under the CBA.


Hm, just quickly glancing over the pages tagged Alex Rodriguez, Bud Selig, or Biogenesis, I don't see anything that shows they're outright questioning MLB's ability to ban A-Rod.

This piece here, I think shows they have a pretty solid grasp of the CBA and JDA: http://deadspin.com/a-rod-suspension...rom-1499361350

Of course, A-Rod himself in his lawsuit against the MLB questioned Selig's authority to impose this type of a ban under the terms of the CBA and JDA so I'm guessing that is where you are pulling that from: http://www.scribd.com/doc/173358290/A-Rod-Lawsuit

At any rate, I do get that Deadspin has a bit more of an anti-Selig bias than most other sources, but that's only because Selig really, really sucks as a commissioner.
