All the focus in Major League Baseball headed towards the All-Star Break is on the PED scandal around the Miami company Bio Genesis. Alex Rodriguez met with MLB officials Friday about their investigation and is facing a 100 game suspension.
Former MLB pitcher David Wells thinks the punishments should be more severe. Wells made the comments on KRLD-FM in Dallas who are bracing for the worst in regards to Nelson Cruz and his role in the scandal.
“Well, I think if these guys are guilty as charged then they should be suspended and maybe kicked out of baseball. There is no room for that. You don’t need to be doing steroids. You don’t need to be doing all that crap. I think with the HGH thing if you’re under supervision of a doctor because there is so much money out there in the game, as long as the league is aware of it, and he’s trying to get back there because he’s making $20 million and he can get back quicker and if it’s under a doctor’s supervision, maybe I would be open to that. But doing steroids and all this other crap, that’s not part of the game. You should be penalized and penalized real real heavy if not kicked out of the game.”
