With the new allegations of players dealing with a banned Florida "wellness" clinic, it's clear that the sanctions put in place by MLB just aren't enough. The sport should be given credit for trying to tackle the issue head-on—unlike the shameful approach of the NFL. Nonetheless, if baseball really wants to get clean, the Commissioner should issue the following edicts:
1.) The first time a player is definitively found to have used a banned performance-enhancing substance, a one-year suspension takes effect. Moreover, any awards won during a tainted period (MVP, Cy Young, ROY) are permanently revoked; 2.) The second time a player is definitively found to have used a banned performance-enhancing substance, a lifetime ban is imposed.
