Q: Kenny Rogers was suspended 20 games for pushing a camera operator and his team must play a man short while he is out. Palmeiro cheated with a banned substance and gets half the punishment -- and his team gets to replace him on the roster. Does this make any sense?

Substance abuse policy is agreed on between MLB and MLBPA.
It is a binding agreement that 1st instance is 10days.

Selig can suspend players for beating up camerman with as severe a punishment as he can get away with.

The exposure for these players is a far worse punishment.
