When a team member is suspended for X number of games because of using performance enhancement drugs, should the team still get to keep their position in the league? After all, the enhanced team member's effort may have played a part in getting the team where they are at that point.

Yes. I agree the suspensions should hurt a little bit. I'm hearing a lot of people around the water cooler suggesting, as you, that the suspension should be more like a year or so.
I don't know that 50 games is "a joke". That's 1/3 of the season. Do you think that the NFL would suspend a player 5-6 games (1/3 of their season) for PEDs? I don't think they would. So, MLB is actually tougher than the NFL

I know...!!! I'm thinking if my husband all of a sudden gained 50 lbs. I would notice it. I see what he eats, how much he exercises... something abnormal is going on. IF the team knew, then I think they are as guilty as the enhanced player.
