Law: Cubs pay a heavy price for Aroldis Chapman, on and off the field - Keith Law Blog- ESPN

Keith Law makes the case for banning players who are involved in domestic violence incidents.

Of course, I’m on record as opposing any team’s decision to acquire and pay a player with a domestic violence incident in his past, especially his recent past. I criticized the Yankees for trading for Chapman in December and expressed my disappointment in the Mets for picking up Jose Reyes and minimizing what he did in describing his own domestic violence incident.

Players union in awkward position in Aroldis Chapman case | Newsday

I can’t believe the MLBPA agreed to such an open-ended policy.

As one union official put it, this is all “uncharted territory,” and the framework the Players Association agreed to last August gives Manfred wide-ranging powers, with a variety of disciplinary action at his disposal. The policy’s language allows for no “minimum or maximum” penalty. Manfred also can put a player on paid administrative leave, such as removing him from spring training, before the suspension takes hold for the regular season.
