Selig Wants Banned Players Out of Minors

Bud Selig wants banned steroid users out of all levels of baseball for the duration of their suspensions.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig agrees with SportsOfBoston’s own Jon and wants major leaguers banned under the steroid policy to be out of professional baseball, not just the big leagues, for the entirety of their suspension. This most recently popped up when Manny Ramirez appeared in the minor leagues to tune up for his return to the Dodgers. He played three games with the Class A Inland Empire 66’s and two games with the Class AAA Albuquerque Isotopes. Selig also noted that the current policy is in place until 2011 and they will not ask them to re-open it now.

I agree with Selig 100% here. Seeing Manny in the minors before his 50 games were served was a farce. If he is due back July 3 and needs a rehab stint, then the Dodgers have to eat five more games. It will give more teeth to the suspensions if they become longer because of that and give the organizations even more incentive to clean this up. Furthermore, I have to applaud Selig because Manny, and others who may find themselves in his cleats, played to sellout crowds in the minor league games, so the MLB, or more appropriately their teams and affiliates, would be giving up gate to enforce this potentially.
