3-5 pages Arbitration award.

This arbitration award, now part of the court record, then became accessible to the public. We will NOT follow the court case proceedings or findings. The arbitration itself deals with the collective bargaining agreement (CBA), MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program (JDA) and the grievance processed pursuant to the CBA and JDA.

For the most part this is boilerplate language you will find in many CBA’s. The difference is the mention of performance enhancing type drugs (PED’s) and yes, statistically maybe the best player ever in MLB.

Read the Arbitration and answer the following:

1. The grievant never testing positive for any of the substances prohibited by the Joint Drug Agreement. What role does that play in a just cause suspension?

2. Although the notebook in question was never produced, should the grievance process be tainted based on unreliable documents and questionable hearsay?

3. Commissioner Selig did NOT testify in the Arbitration, should the grievant have the right to face his accuser and examine him?

4. The grievant chose not to testify, nor offer any witnesses to help his cause. Do you agree with that strategy?

5. Finally, the initial suspension was reduced from 211 games to the entire 2014 season by the tripartite arbitration panel. Do you agree with the outcome? Please explain.
