Johnny Peralta

The St. Louis Cardinals signed Johnny Peralta to a multi-year contract a couple of weeks back.  If you recall, Peralta was one of the players suspended for 50 games for using PED’s last season.  The Cardinals have taken a lot of heat for this signing.  Peralta will earn $50 million over the next 4 years, and many players who have stayed clean are questioning the rewarding of a so-called “cheater” with a long-term contract.  Most question staying clean if the cheaters are going to constantly get back in the game, and in many cases, not pay a very heavy price for their actions.  The Cardinals have responded by saying that he admitted he was wrong, took his punishment, and should now be free to do what he wants.  If he were not a good player and the Cardinals didn’t need a shortstop, I might believe them.  The only player who seems to have taken an “appropriate” hit for his actions is A-Rod.  His 211 game suspension is now working its way through the baseball court system.  Bud Selig, the commissioner, has allegedly come out and said that he does not like A-Rod and feels that A-Rod’s actions deserve a 211 game suspension.  You will get many arguments that what Pete Rose did and what these modern players are doing are very similar offenses.  They are breaking baseballs rules.  So, why are they not being treated equally?
