Can baseball do anything to Giambi and Bonds for the 'roids?

Are there going to be suspensions or fines following the admissions yesterday or are we just going to see a bunch of asterices? Along that line do you think Bonds will keep playing now that this has come out?

Thanks

Baseball's steroids ban
Major League Baseball began steroid testing in 2003 under terms of an agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Association. Critics -- including Commissioner Bud Selig -- say the program is too weak to deter drug cheats, but the players' association has balked at allowing the owners to toughen it unilaterally. Among the program's provisions:

Drugs tested for: Steroids only.

When tests occur: In season only.

Players tested: All players were tested in 2003 for the first time as a survey. Mandatory random testing began in 2004.

Test frequency: A player can be tested only once per season, with one follow-up one week later.

Penalties for violations: Starting in 2004, treatment program (first offense), suspensions ranging from 15 days to one year (subsequent offenses).





They dont have any evidence or admissions of anything after 2003, and I will bet about anything they arent going to get it.

Baseball brought this upon themselves and they deserve every bit of the negativity.

The long ball brought fans back to the game after the strike and owners loved it. Now I have no "proof" or "hard evidence" but I will speculate that baseball owners and executives knowingly even way back before the strike turned a blind eye to steroid use.

They made it way too easy for steroid abuse bye turning a blind eye to it for years and ignoreing it.

I dont think baseball has much right at all to hand out penalties for past abuse.

Now lets get some real and good testing going with severe penalties. Then the baseball players will have to pass their test the Manly way, pumping someone elses urine into their bladders with a catheder, the night before testing like football players have been doing for years.

A catheter? I heard this was how they got the urine into their bladder...

It gets everything out yes. They can still and do use it to pump clean urine in as well.

A catheter?!

My god that must be the most painful experience ever! It's like shoving a pencil in there.

I really doubt that someone would do this for any length of time because I sincerely think that could be damaging to the urinary tract after repeated replacing/removing, and who wants to loose their wang?

And I dunno about anybody else, but I sure wouldn't want somebody elses precious bodily fluids in my body to pass a test.
