Players don't worry that much over a small 50 game suspension, when you can make 16 mil from it.


Well, when B.J Upton is getting $15mil a year, this is looking like a bargain.

It was speculated that he would get around 5 years / $75 million before the suspension so I would say it hit pretty hard.

ya, he was in line for a much bigger contract if he hadn't gotten caught. i would definitely say that losing out on tens of millions of dollars is a pretty strong policy.
