Alex Rodriguez To Receive Lifetime Ban?

Alex Rodriguez may be getting the Pete Rose treatment.

The embattled Yankees star will reportedly receive a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball if he continues to dispute a pending suspension related to the Biogenesis case. USA Today reports that MLB commissioner Bud Selig will ban A-Rod as soon as Thursday.

Rodriguez has been mum on the case while mired in a long rehab from injury. He’s been away from the Yankees all season, but that may be just the beginning of his time away from the majors. It is a huge fall from grace from a player once considered a sure-fire Hall of Famer, now viewed as a multiple-time steroid cheater.
