“I think they should be fined. A lot of people are using drugs. A player like (Jason) Giambi is a good player. He might not be the best role model, but they should just have a light penalty for that. Let them play ball!”

He might not be the best role model, but they should just have a light penalty for that. Let them play ball!” Aaron Davidson, Canarsie Question: Should baseball players who have admitted to taking, or are found to have taken, performance-enhancing drugs be: 1) fined, suspended and given another chance 2) banned from ever again playing in the major leagues, or 3) warned not to do it again? Why?


“They should give them another chance. Everybody deserves a second chance. They should suspend them for a period of time, but then let them back to play baseball.” 
Ronald Surgeon, Canarsie“They should give them another chance. Everybody deserves a second chance. They should suspend them for a period of time, but then let them back to play baseball.” Ronald Surgeon, Canarsie“I think they should be suspended, but not for very long. I think if they do it once, they should be warned. But if they do it a second or third time, then they should be banned. They make too much money for second or  third chances.”
Ashley Gates, Canarsie“I think they should be suspended, but not for very long. I think if they do it once, they should be warned. But if they do it a second or third time, then they should be banned. They make too much money for second or third chances.” Ashley Gates, Canarsie“They should be fined — and big time! They’re making a lot of money, too much, and they have the nerve to do that kind of thing. That’s a shame!”
Vincent Scarabaggio, Canarsie“They should be fined — and big time! They’re making a lot of money, too much, and they have the nerve to do that kind of thing. That’s a shame!” Vincent Scarabaggio, Canarsie
