Does MLB Need A Punishment System For Players Arrested For Drunk Driving?
Published April 18, 2013
IMPLEMENT POLICY OUTSIDE OF CBA? ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser said it is “absolutely reasonable” that MLB implement a stricter DUI policy following Gallardo's arrest. If needed, MLB should implement a new policy outside of the CBA because “you can't just hide behind" what is in that agreement. Kornheiser: “You need to show leadership. Leadership in this case is to look at somebody who was almost three times above the legal limit driving around. That person has to be suspended. In regular life, a normal person is going to be suspended from their jobs for something like that. You have to do this and you worry about the consequences later. You act in the public interest first.” ESPN's Michael Wilbon said, "This is not a new issue. Do it the right way, collectively bargain it. ... Get some sort of situation where this is punished” ("PTI," ESPN, 4/17).
