A-Deal From Selig: Out Until '15 Or Lifetime Ban

Alex Rodriguez has a choice (call it a Butch Hobson's choice if you must): accept MLB's offer of a suspension until the start of the 2015 season or be slapped with a lifetime ban from baseball. Despite reports that The Fraudulent One is sticking to his "innocence" story and vowing to fight a suspension, cooler heads in his camp are likely to prevail. He could take the short-term suspension and still have the possibility of collecting some of the remaining $100 million on his contract. A lifetime ban would probably take The Evil Ones off the hook for any more compensation. Look for a resolution either late this afternoon or early Tuesday. Once again, this could not happen to a more deserving guy.
