I wholly support the notion that baseball's Hall-of-Fame should serve as a museum that documents the game's history. And, yes, that includes suspected, admitted and proven PED users. Put them in the "Asterisk Room," Hall-of-Shame, or Hall-of-Infamy wings. The 1990's was the era that brought baseball back, but a clear line was drawn that it's drug-use antics weren't allowed going forward -- something Alex Rodriguez hasn't figured out.
Should teams be allowed to take their salary back? I think I know the New York Yankees thoughts on that right about now. Perhaps positive PED tests should result in a one-year suspension for the first offense, followed by a lifetime ban after a second positive test? Or maybe we should just let A-Rod continue to dig a muddy hole for himself, knowing that no player will ever get away with what he did throughout the prime of their money-making and home run hitting career before getting caught.
Does the MLB need harsher penalties for players who test positive for PEDs? Should organizations be allowed to take back salary paid to players who test positive?
