Why not banned for life?

August 16, 2013 

Major league baseball pays all of these alleged superstars big money to play and now they are getting suspensions. Why not banned for life a la a Pete Rose ban?

The ringleader A-Rod and any players who do not accept suspensions for the remainder of 2013 and all of 2014 should get banned for life. Apparently, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is nothing more than a wuss and not commissioner of baseball with teeth. If you use PEDs, you lose it all including all records and all current and future money.
