Report: A-Rod offered deal to sit out '13-'14, avoid lifetime ban - CBSSports.com - Matt Snyder - And the update is that A-Rod is, in fact, facing a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball due to what is reportedly "voluminous evidence" in connection to the Biogenesis scandal. MLB is, however, offering a deal. If A-Rod takes his medicine now and doesn't fight a suspension, he'll be suspended for the rest of this season and all of next season. That would mean A-Rod could return to the Yankees in 2015. The report indicates MLB wants to hear back from A-Rod on the matter by Monday. -- It seems like a pretty good deal for A-Rod. He's still set to make $60 million in three years after the suspension and he could put everything behind him. Remember, suspensions are without pay, so if A-Rod rejects the deal and MLB suspends him for the rest of his career, he misses out on over $100 million. I think I'd take the deal and the $60 million, right? - Then again, this is A-Rod, who seems to eat up the drama. And this is a quote from the Daily News story: "If there is a suspension," the source said, "he will fight it."
