    Itís called collective bargaining - something the MLBPA agreed to.

    To suspend him is pathetic.

    I rather they let him play and once he's guilty, suspend him for life from the MLB.
    We don't know the details but considering how everything has been kept SUPER quiet and the fact that he's not appealing I think it's safe to say he's guilty. Even with the verdict in question, the Jays can't allow a guy who may have beaten his girlfriend to play. It sucks because as a Jays fan I want them to win but a line has to be drawn.

    Players face tougher suspensions for drugs in comparison to domestic abuse. I know the drugs can help enhance your ability in the game but morality always plays a bigger part. If he's convicted I don't want to see him in a Jays uniform or any other MLB uniform again. An example has to be made and a standard has to be set. This type of **** can't fly.

    Once he's guilty, that's when you punish him. Ban him for life for all I care once he's guilty.

    Putting him on admin leave is fine until there is a resolution but to actually suspend him when nothing has been proven in court is just MLB swinging their dicks around here and wanting to be judge and jury here.

    They represent a team and the league and are expected to keep a somewhat reasonable image. They should absolutely be punished for committing a crime, depending on the severity of it.

    It doesn't matter that the NFL employs more knuckleheads. There's always a bad apple somewhere. No league should employ someone who beats a woman (not necessarily talking about Osuna, but just in general). Suspension, at the very least, is warranted in certain cases.

    MLB Players Association approved. They do not even contest.

    They are doing more to protect their public image than any sport. Which is more heinous? PED use or abusing another human being?

    Other sports leagues should be as proactive.

    Since the most recent CBA? Probably not.

    I'd say cheating others also falls under morality, we can quibble over which is the worse offense, and some drugs aren't as bad as others, that even with domestic abuse there are levels yadda yadda, but both actions are immoral.

    Absolutely not. Any, and all professions, should hold professionals to a standard of not abusing others, especially spouses.

    The problem with that is that often times, it may have happened, but his wife has to actually want him prosecuted and help the PA to actually go after him. That doesn't usually happen, so while no criminal penalties, you can still know it happened without getting the evidence necessary to prosecute.

    Yea, they're doing it to appeal to the masses. Willing to punish someone to get the millennial and feminist of their side at the expense of the justice system.
