It would suggest one of two things: PEDs don’t, in fact, enhance athletic performances, so what’s the big deal? Or he’s still cheating and he’s beating the system.
How about a two-year suspension, elimination from Hall of Fame eligibility and wiping every statistic out of the record books? It might make players think twice before they dope.

Too soft. First offense, the player should be dipped into a vat of scalding water, second offense they should be put in a catapult and vaulted into a pool of sharks.
How about a two-year suspension, elimination from Hall of Fame eligibility and wiping every statistic out of the record books?
My understanding is that testing now is done by random selection. Under this system, the guilty party would serve his sentence and then be permanently on parole.
The only way #7 could have been better, is if it had been #2.
This is the type of #### that is produced when you have an efficient, well-functioning Colon.
Colon should be a shoe-in
Having said that, if Selig really wants to clean up the game he needs to up the ante on the risk his players will be taking if they decide to cheat.
How about a two-year suspension, elimination from Hall of Fame eligibility and wiping every statistic out of the record books? It might make players think twice before they dope. Remember the Black Sox? Pete Rose? No one thinks that baseball games are fixed because everyone fears the punishment.
Are we extending this to Andy Pettitte? Because I don't see much hand-wringing over the fact he missed an entire year, admitted to using PEDs, came back to pitch very well in twelve starts last year at age 40, and is back at age 41 - older than Colon - with a 3.95 ERA in 11 starts.
If you do steroids you can become a superhuman baseball player, make hundreds of millions of dollars and sleep with a stream of ridiculously sexy and famous women. But don't do steroids!
How about nuclear annihilation for any city that the positive testing player has visited? It's the only way to be sure.
Barry Bonds vs. Ray "Shiv" Lewis.
No comparison, Bonds sullied the sacred MLB record book. "God's Linebacker" just covered up for a couple of his friends murdering someone.
MLB does not own the HoF and does not set the eligibility criteria.
if Bud was determined to keep someone out of the HOF, he would likely be successful.
Huh. I've long assumed that Bud Selig wakes up every day to his worst nightmare -- looking like Stephen Hawking after a sound thrashing.
How about any team that has at least two players test positive within a 24 month period be banned from the playoffs for 2 years
In other words, if Bud was determined to keep someone out of the HOF, he would likely be successful.
The hell with that. On the extreme off chance I ever make it that far north, those guys had damned well better let me in if I buy my ticket.
Everybody is tested in spring training, everybody has at least one random test during the season, some players are randomly chosen for testing throughout the year,...
