Bud Selig pondering A-Roid's future

ESPN reports that Bud Selig and MLB is pondering A-Roid's future as far as discipline goes.
Baseball was still trying to decide Wednesday if it will discipline Alex Rodriguez for his admitted use of banned substances while playing for the Texas Rangers.

Commissioner Bud Selig was said to still be considering his options. While Rodriguez can't be disciplined for testing positive, it's possible baseball could try to punish him for acknowledging steroid use from 2001-2003.

Still, any penalty is highly unlikely.

Rodriguez was evasive during an ESPN interview when asked for details of his drug use, though he did say he has been clean since joining the New York Yankees in 2004.

"I don't know exactly what substance I was guilty of using," he said.

He'll face more questions when he reports to spring training with the Yankees next week. Manager Joe Girardi will hold his first staff meeting of camp Thursday, and position players are to report by Tuesday. Full-squad workouts start the following day.

Meantime, the chairman of the committee that determines the banned-substances list for the World Anti-Doping Agency says he still has plenty of questions for Rodriguez.

"In doping, the devil is in the details, and I think he needs to come forward with the details," Gary Wadler said.

Rodriguez's confession was in response to a Sports Illustrated report that he tested positive for Primobolan and testosterone during baseball's anonymous survey in 2003.
If A-Roid is not suspended or fined, I will move for a vote of no confidence in Bud Selig. A-Roid betrayed baseball fans everywhere. If he didn't think he could play up to his $250 million contract, then why in the frickin' heck did he get a $250 million contract? A-Roid should never get elected to the HOF and have the 3 years of stats deducted from his record.

Give me a frickin' break.
