    I think the HR record is now out of his reach. I don’t believe that the MLB can justify more than a 50 game suspension though without the union going crazy.

    No more Yankee World Series wins for the rest of the century because of this guy, I bet. Seems fair.

      Well, I don’t think we have to worry about any Texas Rangers World Series Championships, either, as they pay of the $40 million they still owe him from the earlier contract.

        Haha… good point and I think you’re right about the Rangers, but I’m an Astros supporter (Go, go Astros!). With our new GM and ownership, we’re quietly preparing to dominate the next quarter century of American League baseball. We’ll probably have the number one draft pick for the third year in a row next year. Who knows when the next Jeter or Rivera will show up in a Yankees uniform.

        Who am I kidding though… it would be stupid to bet against the Yankees not winning again this century.
