FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Thursday: Sal Paolantonio

Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci joined the show to talk about Ryan Braun’s suspension and what’s next for A-Rod and MLB.

Verducci thinks that MLBPA director Michael Weiner standing up and applauding Braun turning himself in. Verducci said that shows how far the union has gone in terms of their view on PEDs.

Verducci weighed in on Alex Rodriguez and the effect of the Braun ruling. He said there was more of a rush for Braun, because he wants to get back next season. He thinks A-Rod’s case is going to take longer and he may have a more intricate defense.

And Verducci said Braun not appealing will affect future cases. “He’s verified the credibility of Tony Bosch to a certain degree,” Verducci said.

Verducci also argued the MLB penalties need to be harsher. He suggested 100 games for the first offense. “I think they would think more about cheating if they knew they would be gone for the whole year,” Verducci said.
