With only a few weeks left until the MLB Playoffs begin, it got me to thinking about how exciting the end of the baseball regular season can be.
Major League Baseball dropped the hammer on Alex Rodriguez and 12 other players for their use of performance-enhancing drugs Monday by handing out lengthy suspensions. But long suspensions are nothing new in baseball where everything from a few games to a lifetime suspension have been handed down at one point.
If New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is awaiting his suspension and could be banned for life. But lifetime bans are nothing new for Major League Baseball which has a lengthy history of throwing people out of the game.
